Forum Title: Need extra long door stop?
I need my exterior entrance door to stop at 6. I cannot use the hinge pin stops on this door. I tried and not only are the hinge pins keyed to be installed fully(security feature) its also a styrofoam metal door and it now has a nice ding in it from these style of stops. The longest spring and solid door stops I can find are 3 or 4. I also looked at the floor mount stops, unfortunately this door is almost 2 off the floor and even the hi-rise stops with 1/4 extender is not enough high enough. Oh, the reason for this is that I have a 6 wide shelf for jackets behind the door. I would put one of those rubber style stops on the door or shelf, but it will still damage it if someone swings hard enough.

..As per their site.... N-6640 Pivot Bracket Contents: 1 bracket. Description: Adjustable pivot bracket mounts into top or bottom track; stamped steel; fits on Slimfold and others. . but you dont have to use that style of 'pin' - not very common (at least up here). You can change out those pins for the more common ones found at any HD/Rona etal. Many times I have to change out the 'old' for the newer style thats more readily available.

Perhaps placing something beside the door that keeps the door from opening all the way and causing the shelf to bang the wall would be helpful. Something as simple as a large basket for collecting shoes?

Add a protection plate (kick plate) to the door face for anti-ding protection. BTW, even thought it's a tad on the expensive side and a bit beyond residential hardware, a surface overhead stop would solve the problem. What is the roller stop designed for? This could work. Also the floor stop at 3 height would work. Nice to hear that there are some options.
