We have a few doors in our house that do not stay open unless they are propped open with something. I decided to order this for our office so that we could move our doorstop to another room and use this for the office, instead.
This is a very heavy duty, classy, magnetic door stopper. It looks very "officey." It is almost too professional looking to be in a regular house. But it is better than having no door stopper, and it is really nice.
This can be used in two ways: 1. door stop where the longer arm attaches to the back of the door and smaller magnetic part attaches to the wall (how I am using it), and 2. door catch where the longer arm is attached to the floor and the magnetic short part is attached to the back of the door. Either way, the two have a really strong magnetic attachment, so I don't think it would matter which way it were used. We have carpet, so we had to use it as a regular door stop. The "door catch" thing reminds me of something that would be in a doctor's office or a gymnasium.
I like this item because it really is made of quality materials and it looks great for our office. We have had previous door stops that have just fallen off of the door numerous times.
The reason I gave this four stars is because it is difficult to install this. My husband had to drill THREE holes into the back of our door with a very large drill bit (one of the holes shown was already there from a previous door stop) - so, if we ever decide to remove this, that area will be difficult to repair.
I am really happy with the way that this came out once we completed the installation. It looks great and it does exactly what we want.
Overall I am satisfied with this product.
