 o
have you found this rotating doorstop?

I wonder if this doorstop is available in North America? I used it in Spain and brought back a few, but am looking for more. It works great--stops and holds a door--and pretty much disappears. The large half sphere has an adhesive backing and it goes on the floor between the door and wall. The arm with the small half sphere swivels...you move it with your foot to hold or release the door.

Thanks!

Here is a link that might be useful: doorstop

Sounds great! While closing and opening, most of the doorstops hurt the foot, but I assume this above one must be quite helpful.

ooh, that's cool! I have never seen one before.

Someday I'm going to start a business importing all the really cool stuff like this that they make and sell in other countries.

Maybe someone you knew in Spain would send some to you? You could send them money to cover the purchase and postage.

I actually have the magnetic door stop with catch from the local home improvement store. Just hold the door back for a second to let the magnet catch. Otherwise just going in and out it just works like a regular door stop. The two pieces need to match so you need to be precise when mounting.

Nothing to rotate or move with your foot. Might want to check them out.

Thanks everyone! I might just have to plan a trip to Spain to pick up some $2 doorstops!
