Works like a charmRebaThese little, light weight, crazy things actually work! We have someone who doesn’t like doors ajar and when they go to close it, get a surprise. It doesn’t move! Two problems solved!5
No more flying doorsCamilleWe have been buying these door stops for many years. They are easy to use, no damage is done to anything as they just slide under the door and are not mounted to anything. Four family households use these because they work so well.5
Too bulkyKapoI like the simple design but it’s too bulky/ long. I either trip on it or kick it while walking past the door.2
Difficult to use but workingDAMAYAMTIDifficult to use but working out okay5
Keeps our cat out of the roomEileeneWe like to leave our rooms open, but don't want the cat in some of them. Patrull door stops work with the pressure from the weight of the door to prevent the cat from pushing the door open. Gives about 2 in opening to let the air flow. Easy for humans to bypass. We have been using these for years!5
Works PerfectMeli007I had a hard time finding a door stop high enough to fit my door. So glad this one works. Fits perfectly, easy to hold the door in place.5
Good design, defective adhesive of rubber squaresSerge72It works great, only issue is that the rubber adhesive was defective and could not assembly the two door steps.4
Doesn’t workJenn CCould be due to the floors being slightly uneven but this did not keep the door in place. Very little effort to push it free. Would not recommend1
Great productEscapemomThis product works very well and easy to store when not in use. I have several around my house!5
UniqueIkeaisgreatThis is a nice unique door stop. I can hold or release door with a touch of my tor5
Little Thing, Huge DifferencebillhorvathThis door stop was a very pleasant find - I happened to be desperately looking for one when I found this one by chance at the Ikea store here in Columbus. It stays in place extremely well, holds the door securely, and is very easy to operate (open the door until it clicks in; step on it to release the door.) Overall, it's an excellent design. Note: If you're concerned about the color, I doubt painting it would be a workable solution; the door would scratch the paint right off I'd expect. YMMV5
Works great!!Ela2016We have hard wood and carpet. The baby loves to shut doors everywhere in the house she can get to. These work perfect all over the house and there is nothing close to this value elsewhere.5
Easy styleMomifboysI like the door stop. Much nicer then the wedge type style. Easily step on it to wedge and unwedge a door. Great for doors that you open and close a lot.5
cool debiviceiamsugarreally cool device, simple, yet effective. works well, a little too long, but does it's job. not very decorative.4
AmazingGram PI have to keep buying these because everyone who comes over and sees how easily they work takes mine. I think I've bought at least 8 or 9 sets of them. I only have one left. Great item.5
Our take on plastic
Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Only recycled or renewable plastics
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastics
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
