Unfortunately for Jenny it happened around 1 AM when she was asleep and she didnt hear the storm. But the local hotel burglar did hear it and knew how to take advantage of the situation and to get into as many rooms as possible. He already had success in two rooms - the occupants never even knew that he was in their room. So when he got to Jennys room he felt very confident. No lights were on and it should be easy pickings. But when he tried to open the door it hit the lip of the Door Stop Alarm and set off the 120 dB alarm -- which is very loud. Needless to say Jennys room was not burglarized that night and she stayed safe.

This style is popular when there is either no base (or floor) board or a decorative trim is being used. Most styles screw directly into this trim and this does leave screw holes and is more visible. A hinge stop screws into the hinge rather than the floor board itself. These utilize a two leg construction to prevent the door from rotating the entire length traditionally allowed by the hinge. These are rubber tipped as well to prevent damage to the door and adjustable in length.

The added benefit of a magnet will catch the door if it does swing open suddenly and prevent it from slamming shut again.

Old and traditional door stoppers are usually made of a thin piece of wood shaped into a wedge that is inserted on the tiny gap between the door and the floor to prevent it from moving. Because our world is fond of creating new inventions and innovations home stores and manufacturing companies have come up with a chic and stylish door stopper that can replace the good old wedge from wood.
