You walk past a door that’s ajar with a paper airplane stuck at the corner and shake your head as you bend over to pick it up. The door suddenly swings to a close, hitting you on your noggin in the process. The lesson? Don’t pick up random paper planes off of the floor, because you might be in for a (rude and painful) surprise if it turns out to be the Paper Airplane Doorstop.
Don’t let appearances or names fool you either, because the Paper Airplane Doorstop isn’t really made out of paper. It’s actually fashioned from sturdy ABS plastic so it can take on the heaviest door that you’ve got in your home.
Paper Airplane Doorstop
The wedge shape of your typical needle-nose paper airplane is the perfect shape to jam in between a door and the floor. Unfortunately, a folded sheet of paper’s ability to effectively stop a door from moving is limited, to say the least. Recognizing the perfect shape of the paper airplane, engineers replaced the flimsy paper construction with durable ABS plastic. With the added strength of science, the airplane wedges in nicely, and keeps the heaviest door from slamming shut.
