How to catch/trap door


Hi,
My entrance corridor is very narrow, so I'm thinking how to keep door open while we take out stroller, etc..
Is there any trap/release device other than door stop that can be used, I don't want to expose anything outside the door, and probably I can't by our hoa policy.
checked hdepot and didn't found anything yet.

Tx
Dai

How to catch/trap door


A simple way to hold open the door temporarily would be to buy a plastic or rubber wedge made for this purpose or make a wooden wedge.

If you can't find one at the depot,try a local hardware store. Just keep it in the same place when not in use so it won't get lost; and ,make sure no one can ever trip over it.
