How to Install a Hinge Pin Door Stopper


Hinge pin door stoppers prevent wall damage that can occur when a door opens too quickly or too far. Homeowners can easily install a hinge pin door stopper over the upper hinge of a door. Rather than bumping against the adjacent wall, the hinge pin stopper's adjustable bumper makes contact with the door frame on the hinge side of the door. Homeowners with decorative baseboards often prefer hinge pin door stoppers to baseboard-mounted models.

Things You'll Need

  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Hammer
  • Go to the inside of the room and close the door. Insert the tip of a flat-head screwdriver between the bottom of the hinge pin head and top of the door hinge barrel on the upper hinge of the door. Tap the end of the screwdriver with a hammer and pry the hinge pin out of the upper hinge.

  • Place the door stopper over the top of the upper hinge, lining up the mounting hole for the stopper with the hinge pin hole. The stopper's bumper end should point to the hinge side edge of the door.

  • Insert the hinge pin through the door stopper mounting hole and the upper hinge. Tap the top of the hinge pin with a hammer until the head of the pin is flush on top of the door stopper.

  • Open the door fully until the inner door handle is 2 inches away from the wall. Rotate the hinge screw bumper clockwise until the end makes contact with the door frame. The screw bumper threads in and out of a mounting sleeve on the hinge stopper.
