Can someone tell me the proper name for what I call a door stop- no not the fire extinguisher or old iron you put at the bottom of the door to stop it closing!- but that long piece of wood planted on the door liner to ensure the door closes correctly.Also are you able to buy them at a particular width-I'd like some say 85mm in width by 12-14mm thick & tapering down to about 1-2mm at the edge of the door frame/liner.

Helo KevelJay,Thanks for your reply-it's those three pieces of wood,two down the middle or perhaps as in my case 35m in from the edge? of the door liner (& one across the top) which stop the door as you pull or push it to close it.Your explanation is probably right given my rather vague enquiry.

Rgds,

Hello Woody,I thought so too but just try &'Goggle'- Door Stop- and see what you get;nothing but little pigs,frogs & sweet dolls and all keeping doors open but nothing to do with keeping them properly closed!

ah, that's the problem. If you want to buy some, you don't google "door stops" you google "pieces of wood"

Hillmarket. Defo always called these a loose rebate stop, although this could be a colloquialism icon_rolleyes.gif . Essentially, two types of door casing are available - 1: Inbuilt rebate to hang the door into 2: Flat casing with loose rebate stops that you can position anywhere witin the casing reveal.

If you don't have the tools yourself , you will need to go to a timber merchants and get them to machine up a couple of lengths for you or modify some chamfered skirting.
As you want something profiled you will have to scribe or mitre the joints in the corners
