Rated 5 out of 5 by TLarge It's great!
I love the rope knot doorstop. It's plenty heavy enough for where we're using it. And it's so easy to move using the rope handle. Besides, it's much more interesting and attractive than a standard door stop!

Too light. Door closes as if the doorstop was not there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iloveballardoutlet Beautiful but not enough to hold back from wind
Although this is quite heavy, it's not quite enough weight to hold back the door we are using it to an outdoor screened in room. It will blow shut with a strong wind. It is very beautiful and well made and as long as you are using for an indoor application it's works perfectly and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melissaleen Love this!
I love this as a doorstop. Looks great and is well made. It's heavy enough that my door - finally - doesn't slam shut when the breeze blows through, but it's light enough that it's not a bother to move when it's not in use.

I had been wanting to purchase this doorstop for a while, and I'm SO glad I finally did! It looks great in the room, and is so easy to move around, either by grabbing the loop or scooting it with your foot. And the rope ensures that it doesn't scratch the floor!

Great addition to our home in Florida. It works very well and holds our heavy patio doors open. Unique design, we are enjoying it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Iloveballard5 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 :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by ninalynn 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pjseattle 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BNole 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by klokaren 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LK1234 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RiverfrontHome 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyinbham 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by raznboyz4 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeaLover7 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.

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!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandynh 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PaulaE 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joclyn 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by massisgram 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.

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
