The DoorSaver II looks like an interesting idea, but I wonder whether there are issues with replacing the original hinge pin.  It wouldn’t be acceptable on a fire door unless allowed by the hinge manufacturer’s listings.  And I’m also wondering about stress on the hinge and the hinge reinforcement.  I’d much prefer an overhead stop but I’ve seen distributors enlarging the hole in a residential hinge pin stop in order to use it on a commercial hinge, so there is definitely a market for commercial hinge pin stops.

What do you think?
