Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PK Terrible design
When plate is mounted there is insufficient space to secure stop. When I added a washer, the space was too far and wobbly. Shame, it seemed clean and effecient.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by iamopie Impossible to install over a hole in drywall
The only possible way this door stop could be installed would be by screwing through the rubber directly into an anchor or solid wood. I wanted to use this over top of a hole in the drywall (due to some over-zealous kids slamming it open, despite the door stop already installed). The problem I ran across is that it is impossible to install the trim piece over the backing plate if the backing plate has already been screwed onto the wall.
I was screwing the backing plate into a piece of wood which was bridging the hole in the wall from the back side of the drywall. There are little nubs on the backing plate to presumably set it farther out from the wall so the trim can be slid on and locked into place. But the backing plate, in order to engage the trim piece, has to be about 1/16" deep into the trim piece. The nubs don't hold it anywhere close to that far from the wall.
Near as I can tell, even if you had the backing plate screwed into a piece of flush wood, you would still not be able to attach the trim of the doorstop to the backing plate. One would probably have to use a couple washers to try to get some spacing. It's really a poor design.
The only way I can see that you could make this work would be to punch a hole through the rubber stopper, and screw through it. That wasn't possible in my application unfortunately.
There must be better designs out there somewhere...

Easy to install while giving a simple clean look that didn't take away from the overall design

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gizzy Good basic door stop!
Works great! The metal housing that encloses the rubber stop was a bit confusing. I assumed that I was to screw the base to the wall then place the rubber stop and place the brushed metal housing on top. However, when I screwed the base to the wall, there was no room to screw the metal housing on to the base, so I jst placed a screw though the rubber stop, which left the screw exposed. No big deal. As I am an idiot, idiot proof instructions would have been nice!
