If you enjoy popping out as frequently as you wish during the warmest months, having to open and close your patio door every single time can get a bit annoying. Maybe you just want to let some sunshine into your house, too. However, those unpredictable gusts of wind can be the nemesis of the delicate glass panels on your door.
That's why a patio door stopper can be a real life-changer!
Before grabbing the first model that tickles your fancy, don't forget to identify which type would actually work with the design and location of your door.
For example, when it comes to inward-swinging doors, weighted stoppers are one of the most popular options and they can even help you reinforce the theme or interior style of that room.
However, for outward-swinging models, you must consider the gap between the bottom part of the door and your patio floor. If it's minimal, most weighted patio door stoppers will still work. If there's a little step, though, you should only look for taller models.
Other options are magnetic door stoppers (for the lightest inward-swinging doors) and small latch-style models that you can manually secure to a piece mounted on the wall, either indoors or outdoors.
If you're particularly worried about some delicate pieces of furniture behind your inward-swinging door, a overhead door stop will save you a headache.
