How to stop your doors banging shut on windy days.
This fine rope door silencer or door stop looks good as well as being useful preventing doors slamming shut in coastal cottages or beach homes at the breezy seaside.
It fits most doors from handle to handle, as in the photographs.
It also helps to stop small children trapping their fingers in doors too.
Wheelchair users who struggle with door handles have found these ropes handy to stop doors fully closing.
(Not to be used on fire doors, or with unsupervised young children).
I named this door silencer after the Cornish town of Padstow, which is a great place for a pasty by the harbour followed by an ice cream.
Approximate total length 50 cm (20 inch)
Made with 16 mm and 4 mm rope.

If you have enclosed handles, we make also make a toggled version, which can be undone on both sides. Click here for a look.
These stop/ silencers are made from poly hemp (Hempex) rope which is used on classic yachts as it looks very similar to traditional hemp. Poly hemp is easy to care for, just hand wash and leave to dry naturally. Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
