Jenny was going on a business trip. It was her first real time away from home and she was very excited - she was still living with her parents. While she was packing she remembered a gift from her parents that at the time she received it looked like a joke. It was a Door Stop Alarm. "Now what would I do with this?" she thought. So like most other presents that we receive that we dont want she put it away in her closet. As she was packing her father asked her to take the Door Stop Alarm with her. But Dad Ill be staying in a hotel room with a strong door. Why would I need to take this thing with me?" "Just humor your old man OK" her father said. "You can never be too careful". But Jenny thought that it would be a waste of time and didnt put the alarm in her suitcase.
The slower or faster the door opened made no difference on the hard surfaces while the slower you opened the door on the carpet the longer it would take to engage because it would slightly slide back before engaging. As for the strength the stronger you forced the door open the quicker on both surfaces the unit jammed the door. I would recommend it for college students; who want to keep unruly friends out of their dorm room while sleeping renters and travelers who are looking for an inexpensive way to stay safe at there home away from home.

When she checked into her hotel room and began unpacking she discovered that her father secretly put the Door Stop Alarm into her luggage. She was furious - how dare he! Didnt she tell her father that she would be OK? Why did he have to interfere? She promised to tell him a thing or two when she got home. Just to show Dad that his gift was useless she decided to put it in front of her door that night. "That way I can tell him that I tried it even though I didnt need it" she thought. Well it turned out that Jenny DID need the Door Stop Alarm that night because while everyone was asleep there was a storm that knocked out all the electricity for the hotel.
To use the this device you shut the door and place the alarm on the ground in front of the door so that the thin side is touching the doors threshold or is even with the door face. When the door opens it pushes the plate on top down sounding off the alarm while at the same time jamming the door from opening further than a crack. It measures 6" x 2" x 2-1/4" making it compact enough to pack in an overnight bag or suit case so you can take it with when staying at hotels or motels providing added safety while traveling.
