Doorstops installed in baseboards are not attractive. This black round doorstop is designed to be floor mounted and when installed, it is unobtrusive.
The item is made up of 3 pieces: a base, a rubber bumper, and a screw-on top piece. It also comes with a screw and a screw anchor. To install, unscrew the top piece, insert the screw through the hole in the base, drive the screw into the floor until it is snug, screw the top piece along with the bumper to the base; and the job is complete.
The bumper does its job without marring the door. For our home, one of these is not enough as there are several doors that need this type of doorstop.

Having the Everbilt round doorstop is a great solution to keep my wall damage free. Installation was easy and comes with the screw to mount the doorstop to my floor. The matte black blends well with my door hardware and the round shape gives a simple modern feel. The rubber of the door stop absorbs the door opening and does not allow for the door to bounce back and hit me in the face, but I can't say if it will help my kids since the like to slam the door open.
Nice doorstop for those situations where you need a door to not open further than mid-arc - as opposed to against a wall, where a wall-mounted stalk-type door stop would be used. In our case it is in a walk-in closet, to stop the inward-opening door from reaching the hanging clothes.
Its construction is solid, with a rubber bumper ring surrounding a black anodized (or painted?) metal cylinder (the web page description says steel, but it feels more like aluminum to me.) The only concern I have with it is whether, with age, the rubber of the ring might deteriorate and mark the white door that hits it, but way too soon to tell. The reason I didn’t give this a 5-star rating is a visible defect in the black coating (see attached photo), which should have been caught by the manufacturer’s QC, but it is fairly minor & you should be able to notice in the blister pack when buying.
Installing it is ultra-simple. Just decide where you want it positioned, screw the cylinder to the floor with the supplied 1 ¼” screw and then screw on the cap with its attached rubber bumper (see parts in photo.) Just one hint: if you are installing this on top of carpet, as we did, make sure you torque the mounting screw down well, or door stop will wobble when hit by door.

This is a nice door stop.
It comes with a screw, wall anchor and there are directions on the back of the packaging.
Installation was simple.
The door stop is metal with a rubber protective ring around it. The cap unscrews off in order to install a screw through the base of the door stop. Then, you screw the cap back on.
The build quality is very sturdy. The paint job is even throughout.
My expectations have been met.
