    Hi guys,

    Do you have any good solutions for preventing doors from slamming due to tenants not using door stops? (excessive amounts of door stops are available but they are not using it). I've been researching and found this door damper from dictator v1600. just wondering have you guys ever used it before? or can recommend a similar product?

    Do they really work?



    do you know where i can buy this product? hoping to try it out on one door before investing in more doors.

    does it really work if it's a really strong breeze that fully slams the door?

    You can buy magnetic door stops from Bunnings - some are stronger than others.

    Haven't used door dampers, but worth a go...

    What are magnetic door stops?
    is this what you are refering to?

    do you mean the thing at the back of the door that holds it against the door?

    the tenants leave the door open like 30 degrees so the magnetic door stop is unable to reach it.

    their iq is too low, there is constant door slamming that makes the whole house shake, feels like a war zone. Happy to invest in a permanent engineering solution, but don't want to get something when the wind is really strong still doesn't work.

    just for closure.

    i did end up getting the dictator r1400 and 1600 one of each.
    i have installed the r1400 and it's great. really does work. door doesn't slam anymore and closes proper, gently.

    However it was very tricky to install.

    i think they are suited for solid timber doors and not so much flush doors.

    costed me on average $100 each. ($60 shipping and delivery $65 each.)
