    good idea! We use a carton of cat litter for a prop and hope we can get groceries in before the cat realizes the escape hatch is open.

    Try adjusting the hinges so that the door stays open instead of swinging shut.

  • I hate to burst your bubble on this, and although it is a great suggestion that makes life just a bit easier. But the auto closer on the door must always be able to close the door completely. Code requires this to prevent fumes and potential fire from getting into the house. And if by the slightest chance that the door stopper prevents the door from fully closing and your not aware is the exact time your going to have an issue in the garage that can result in a issue I would not want to read about in the paper. In addition, if you ever have a claim on your insurance policy because of a fire issue in your garage, even if the door was closed you risk a cancellation of the policy. Your better off with a brick enclosed in a cloth bag or something that once it moves will not risk preventing the door from staying open. But any permanently mounted on the door stopper is a no-no.
