I love this design, and I really really want to like it - I've been looking for a cast iron doorstop for a while and hoped this may be it. Unfortunately it is too lightweight to be an effective doorstop.
Judging from the photo online, I thought the Owl would be much larger and not hollow on the back. When the doorstop arrived it barely worked to hold my door open, and only does so when it's tilted forward. Now I'm just using it for decoration because it wasn't worth shipping it back for how much I paid and paying for shipping in the first place. I wouldn't recommend it as a door stop for heavier, exterior doors.
i bought two of these adorable doorstops to use as bookends. there is the typical slope to the part that would go under the door, so i made little cardboard...things...to put over that part to keep the books from sitting crooked, which they did before i made the cardboard...i guess shims would be what they are. since these doorstops are nice and heavy, they hold even very large, heavy, hardbound books securely in place. i'll be buying more of these super cute owls!
I obviously didn't receive the same one as everyone else. Mine doesn't stand upright like in the picture. It's back metal part that goes under the door is at an angle, so when I set it under the door it flops forward. You can't tell it is an owl because of the angle it is, and it gets in the way instead of sitting flush with the door. Very disappointed because it would have been cute.
Great little owl. Says it's a doorstop but honestly it's a cute 'shelf' item also (I actually didn't know it was a doorstop!) It's very heavy and durable. Much cuter in person. Great price also!
I bought this for our office door which hangs pretty high off the ground (probably because there used to be carpet in that room once upon a time that has been replaced with Pergo). It works perfectly for holding the door open -- what more could you ask for from a doorstop? I was happy with the price too, it seems like it would've cost more.
Perfect size, works well, good price, exactly for what I was looking. Love it.
