    This thing is just ingenious, I'm happy with the decision to build it!

    I built it for the front door of my workshop, that door hurt me several times and now I put an end to it!

    It is possible to put either a washing machine or a body of a man that can also work. But I like to make things myself it gives me a sense of satisfaction ��

    Here those are very popular, Finnish name for that is "oven aukipitolaite".

    This thing is just ingenious, I'm happy with the decision to build it!-15318_4212_dx150f-dx200f-hinged-door-stopper-dulimex-150mm-springs-hinged-door-stopper-dul.jpeg

    That's specially useful in windy days.

    Here those cost about 35$. So, its really worth making, specially if you already have suitable materials and free time.

    In our country it is not possible to get it, this thing does not exist in stores at all… but in any case the most fun to build yourself with you have the right materials. Actually why not?

    Yep. That really is useful, also good diy build.

    I think that the reason why here is many different door openers or holders in the market. Is that nobody cares to hold or open door for a male, no matter how heavy load one is carrying.
