Door Stop Alarm

61ZQNsVqiZL._SL1000_

I've seen these advertised forever but never in person nor have I met anyone who's told me about how it worked for them — or didn't.

Amazon's got a zillion for sale, starting at $1.99.

Anyone out there know if they're worth having for when you're spending the night in a hotel or for that matter anywhere you'd rather not have someone try to enter?

This isn't supposed to be used like a regular doorstop. It looks like you position this just under the bottom of the closed hotel door. If someone tries to open the door, the alarm is activated.

Given that hotel doors almost always open inward (fire regulations), it's unlikely that these would be more than just a doorstop.

Why would someone put a door stop under a closed door? The wedge used on doors keeps them open.
