Angled Doorstop from DoorstopWorld

Angled Gate stop

If in doubt, we suggest making a cardboard angle guide such as this to check your door alignment & decide on the best angle of doorstop to install. Make one for each size & angle combination that you're considering!

 

For best results and to avoid doorstop damage...

Please ensure that the opened door is hitting the doorstop square on, rather than at an angle.

Your doorstop needs to be placed at the right position on the wall to match the doorstop magnet angle type & to suit the door angle. This is essential for your doorstop to work properly and ensures that you get the best hold strength from your doorstop & magnets (where fitted). Please use our suggested cardboard cutouts shown above to ensure you get the correct choice of angle - 22½°, 45°, 60° or 90°

We've seen a few instances where clients have tried to fit the doorstops in such a way as to get another inch or two of opening from the door - but the door/magnet doesn't then meet the doorstop rubber square on and either fails to hold or causes damage.

If in doubt about a particular application, please call us for advice - 07775 486683

Please use the stainless steel fixings provided
Using old screws from your toolbox may result in unsightly rust marks!
