PHOEWON Magnetic Door Stopper

PHOEWON Strong Magnetic Door Stopper on white background

A low-key door stop, ideal if you want to keep their doors open without the appearance of a heavy duty door stopper. Made from zinc alloy metal, it contains a magnet that is strong enough to hold the connecting plate attached to the door in place, while remaining easy enough to close the door when you need to.

The base plate is 5mm tall, which means it’s not so big that you’ll accidentally kick it or trip over the door stop when it’s not in use. It should be easily stuck down with self adhesive, which means no drilling is required, though you can install with screws if you’d like.
