2 doors opening into each other.


Sorry no pics. They swing in, are hinged in the corner, and the knobs run into eachother.

My solution is a springy door stop, mounted high, on a two inch block/spacer (so the stop reaches beyond two door knobs).

Kind of would look hokey, but can't think of another way.

Install a hindge stop.
Just knock out the pin set the stop in place and tap the pin back in place.

If there's a stop then the doors can't open more than half way. And one is an entrance door. Eek

Depends how much work you want to put in.

What does the interior door open into? if there is room maybe reverse the door so it opens inwards IE remove the casing, door and door jamb, and reverse the whole thing, reinstall casing. You may have to deal with a gap where the casing meets the baseboards. Or possibly replace with a pocket door.

That is what I was about to suggest....assuming that one door is a closet....

What does the entrance door go to?

The picture is accurate. The door on the right is an exit door; the one on the left is to a stairwell going down so it can't be changed; it won't clear the sloped ceiling.

Not following you, right now the doors can not be opened up more then 90 deg.'s All a hindge stop will do is stop the two doors from opening so far the knobs hit.

Mount a roller stop on one door. It will save the hinge screws and be much cheaper than a new door configuration.

i dont know why you want to change it, ive got doors like this in my master bath and i LOVE them. if both doors are open, it stops someone from pushing the exit door open. Added security. I love it. If you want to change it, i agree with maintenance.

I have one of these mounted to the top of one of the doors, it works pretty well.

You have to mark a spot and see if it works to make sure the point you pick does not "slide off" one of the doors when they reach a certain point.

I dunno what you mean by "exit door." Guess it depends on which room you're in.
But you have a safety issue. One of those doors needs to open away from this side.
If one of the doors is open, it colud prevent other door from opening, trapping some one on other side. It does not matter if there is another exit on other side, it could be blocked as well.
Or scary goblin could be coming up stairs.
