We checked into our hotel, thrilled to have some quality family time together. Our 3-year-old son was particularly excited to check out our new digs — he ran around playing and exploring while my wife and I unpacked. In a nightmarishly abrupt moment, he cried out having fallen headfirst into the wall-mounted door stop.

Unseen danger could be anywhere in a hotel room.

Traditional wall and floor-mounted door stop serve a useful function, but they come with possible risks and obvious aesthetic problems. Children and pets can get hurt, and an elegant hotel room’s chic appearance ruined. This is why hotel designers and owners are more and more avoiding installing obtrusive room hardware like commercial door stops whenever possible.
