This is more of a how-do-you-fix-it? photo than a Fixed-it Friday photo, but Carri Holmes of Allegion sent me this photo to find out if there is a recommended mounting location for floor stops.  The current location of this stop is definitely not working – it is too close to the pivot and it’s damaging the door sweep.  It could potentially damage the sweep regardless of where it is mounted, but because it only allows the door to open to 90 degrees (or less?), the door is coming into contact with the stop more frequently and with more force than if the door was allowed to open past 90 degrees.

Where would you typically mount a floor stop?  I’ve never seen a guideline for this, have you?
