Rope Knot Doorstop 4.1 5 55 55
Not Heavy enough Isn't heavy enough to hold my door open. I accidentally threw away the tag and receipt so I have wasted 50 dollars on a door stop that doesnt stop my door :( September 24, 2013
great looking We love these door stops for our large french doors. They look exactly how they are pictured. Not too heavy... can easily be moved, but seem to do a great job keeping the doors opened. I've ordered about 16 of them! September 7, 2013
Great Doorstop We've had a couple of these doorstops for years. We use them indoors for a few doors that have hinges that don't keep the doors open all the way at the wall. I don't mind having them scattered about the house since they look so nice and befit our Nantucket style home so well. They are nice and heavy and are soft enough that they won't mar painted surfaces. I do wish they were a bit less expensive, but will be buying one or two more. September 5, 2013
Cleaver Ingenious, tasteful, functional. Really a great idea. Have several around the house. June 2, 2013
Loved it so much, I bought it twice! The door stop is fantastic! Not only can it be used for a doorstop, it can also be used as a book end or looks great sitting atop a pile of books. I have now purchased two. The second was as a gift. It adds great character and texture to any room! Love, love, love! May 30, 2013
Too Big! I had no idea this cute doorstop was going to be so big until it arrived. It looks crazy big in a home and I cannot use it. I should have paid better attention to the measurements listed and gotten out my tape measure to see just how big it was going to be. It's huge! It would be so great in a version half it's size. May 16, 2013
Not at all as pictured This Rope Knot Doorstop is very disappointing. The loop at the top folds over and does not stand up. It does not look like the catalog picture. It looks more like a small ball of dirt on the floor. It also is not heavy enough to keep my front door open. I love Ballard Designs and have always enjoyed their products. But this one is extremely disappointing! April 15, 2013
Awesome nautical knot for use as a doorstop! A very stylish nautical knot door stop for our waterfront home! A very good weight to hold the door open and easy to move with the loop on top. Love it! February 15, 2013
excellent accent it's a small touch with great impact. works well in the space January 26, 2013
love. this door stopper is a good weight and super cute for a nautical theme! November 4, 2012
Love them, absolutely Love them!!!! Prior to purchase, I read every review and the biggest compliant was the loop did not stand up as shown in the picture. I was all set to thread a wire through as one customer's husband had done BUT...... I love the "flop" wouldn't change a thing. October 11, 2012
Cute addition to any home This is my second "rope knot" door stopper. We moved into a home by the beach where the wind readily closes our doors so this little stopper is just the thing we needed - all while looking so beachy and cute! October 8, 2012
The doorstop has changed from when I bought it a couple of years ago I bought 2 of these doorstops a couple of years and ago and loved them. Bought a new house and ordered another and this one just doesn't seem the same...the rope on the top of the knot has a big gap and the loop doesn't stand up straight...almost seems to be unfinished. I may have gotten a bad one... but kind of a bummer. September 24, 2012
WONDERFUL! The subtle way that these rope knot doorstops represent a nautical/beach theme in our home is definitely appreciated. Then, to have them at a fair price & such high quality is all the more outstanding...thank you! September 7, 2012
Just what I wanted I am so pleased. I needed heavy door stops for my home. They fit in quite well with my beach house design. August 4, 2012
looks great - works well This is perfect for keeping our french doors open to the sun porch. Very effective, looks great ith our country cottage decor. August 1, 2012
Great Doorstop Received my new Rope Knot Doorstop. I really like it. It is very heavy and keeps the door where I want it, open or slightly open. If I want to move it, I just roll it with my foot. Recommended to all! August 1, 2012
Up to the job. This doorstop is doing a great job holding back an exterior door which opens on to a screen porch. It even holds up to strong winds coming off of a large New England lake. Design fits in well with our rustic lake house decor. Handle is very convenient. July 25, 2012
Attractive but not heavy enough I live near the Atlantic. Strong ocean breezes hit the master bedroom and often cause the door to slam closed. I'd been using a heavy cast iron mermaid bookend as a door stop, but when I saw this rope knot, I thought it would look great in place of the mermaid. It does look great, but it's not heavy enough to do the job when the wind is gusty. I'd say it should be 5 pounds heavier to really work in this environment. I might repurpose it as a bookend, in fact, and put the mermaid back to work at the door. July 18, 2012
perfect doorstop perfect size and weight!! i have this at our lake house and it fits the decor of the house. and best of all it holds door open or closed! July 16, 2012
Great Door Stop Use this in my bathroom and it does the job it's suppose to and looks fabulous! July 12, 2012
Purchased to use at a cabin on the river. I purchased 4 of these previously. I needed 2 more but the price concerned me. I look around for a cheaper alternative but nothing came close to the quality of these. Waited for Ballard Designs to offer a discount or free shipping and ordered 2 more. Am very satisified with these. June 8, 2012
dimmensions are not complete or accurate I am sending it back as this is not tall enough to hold my patio door open. The description reads that the knot is 6" in diameter, however, the knot itself is only 3-1/2" tall. June 1, 2012
door stop This makes a great door stop and fits in with my sea side decor, The only problem is it got very hot and I haven't opened the windows and I haven't used my new door stop. SV May 26, 2012
Fit the decor perfectly Though this is certainly heavy enough to use as a doorstop, I purchased it as an accent piece to sit on a nightstand in a boy's coastal themed bedroom. Very cute! It appears to be well made. May 25, 2012
Disappointed - The ropeknot didn't work on a fire door. I like the look, but the color of the rope is darker than I had expected when compared to the photo. Unfortunately, the most disappointing aspect is that the ropeknot isn't heavy enough to hold open a fire door, the door from the house to the garage. I bought it specifically for this door. When we tried it out, the door still closed. It just pushed the ropeknot with it. My husband can't believe I spent this much money on a doorstop, let alone one that doesn't work. It'll work on the other interior doors in my house but I don't need a doorstop for those. Maybe I'll use it as a bookend as suggested as another option. April 15, 2012
Useful and attractive Perfect doorstop. Just round enough to kick into and out of place when opening and closing the door, but not too round to roll out of place once it's set. Had my eye on it for some time but thought it might be more than I wanted to spend, but so glad I finally bought one. March 1, 2012
So playful and functional! The rope knot was nice and heavy. There is something inside that gives it weight and holds the door open beautifully. Great job Ballard. Just the clever and sophisticated style that I've grown to appreciate from you ! January 28, 2012
As expected Many of the other reviewers expressed disappointment that the rope "handles" did not stand up as shown in the catalog photo. My handy husband threaded some wire through ours, which made them exactly as shown. I am happy with my purchase. January 21, 2012
fair the quality was disappointing. The rope did not completely cover the ball. December 12, 2011
