This is Master Lock’s new Compact Door Stopper. It’s a portable door stopper that can be used on hinged or sliding doors. This door stopper is adjustable and is supplied with two rods – one for hinged doors and another for sliding doors. The rod size can be changed to meet the needs of your door type, allowing you to enjoy all the features this product has to offer.
In this post I’ll describe the features offered by this compact door stopper, as well as its possible drawbacks, before providing a verdict at the end. It’s not easy to protect your home from burglars. Whether you live in a high-crime area or simply have an unwavering sense of paranoia that someone’s going to try and break into your house, you should make sure that your front door is as secure as possible.
