Rolling Door Stop
Category: Household, doorstops, bedroom, bathroom
Problem: I wanted a doorstop that I could easily adjust or move out of the way with my feet and one that wasn’t very heavy.
Action: I took a round container about 8” high and 4” in diameter that had a plastic lid that snapped on. I filled it about half full of some aquarium gravel that my kids had left around the house. This container can then be rolled into place. The gravel moves to the bottom and while it is easy to roll out of place, it takes a little effort to do it as the gravel tumbles around inside.
Result: It works great!
