At 49cm high, this tall door stop is handmade to a very high standard. It’s known as the ‘Lighthouse’ and is our best selling product. Made from 100% rope and has a unique and visually appealing design. It will hold open a door in your home or outside. Its tall height and weight makes this a useful door stop for patio doors, bi-fold doors or French doors that have a shallow step drop or on a balcony.
Designed by a British craftsman called The Ropeman. The Ropeman’s designs use traditional nautical knot tying from times gone by. The same ropework skills were taught to sailors in Britain’s historic Navy. You can watch a short video of this tall door stop being demonstrated by The Ropeman by clicking here.
This tall door stop has a nautical authenticity so makes a great house warming gift for those that live by the sea. View how this tall door stop works well as an outside / outdoor doorstop in our customer gallery.
Please note that in strong windy conditions and when the door is higher than the ground, then the leverage may cause it to fall over. However some of our customers have found a solution by tying a cord from the door handle to the loop of the lighthouse to hold it upright and in place – this is explained in a video by The Ropeman.
