Keep Doors From Latching With A Pool Noodle

Keep Doors From Latching with a Pool Noodle

Pool noodles are awesome for protecting your car in the garage and keeping cool in the pool. In winter, they can also be used as DIY door stops around the house.

There are any number of reasons why you might want to keep doors from shutting. Maybe your toddler has a tendency to close herself in rooms with no way out, or maybe your cat needs access to your office to use the litter box. No matter what your reasons, just cut off a section of a pool noodle, and cut a lengthwise slit to open it up. Slide it on your door, and boom, doorstop.

If it's sliding off the door, a strip of velcro should keep it in place.

    With 2 young boys in the house these are essential as they are continually slamming doors and being that a noodle is $3-$4 for a full length which can be cut up into at least 8-10 stops, it is a much better option than the door stops from the baby section at $5 each!
