A magnetic doorstop features a two-piece design where the post side attaches to the door and the receptacle attaches to the baseboard or wall. A less common model can be mounted to a hardwood floor. Both install in basically the same way.
1. Position the doorstop post on the lower outside area of the door. Mark the screw holes, typically three in number, in the post flange on the door. Drill a pilot hole at mark. Place the flange over the holes and screw the post in place, with a self-tapping metal screw for metal doors or a short wood screw for wood doors.
2. Slide the ring that covers the screw holes over the post and thread it onto the flange threads.
3. Move the door so that the post touches the wall or baseboard. Draw an outline around the head with a pencil. Push on the center button part of the base and pinch the bottom. Unscrew the cover from the base. It will come apart as a base, spring, spring cap and cover.
4. Place the base over the outline on the baseboard. Mark your screw holes and drill pilot holes. Screw the base to the baseboard with a screwdriver. Place the cap on the spring and insert the spring into the cover. Center the cover over the base and compress until you can thread the cover onto the base and tighten it.
Things You Will Need:
Phillips head screwdriver
Drill and bit set
Tip: The floor-mounting receptacle has a similar construction. Mount the base to the floor and cover the base by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
