Product Description

The Fantom Stop was created to solve two issues: the tripping hazard of most standard doorstops, and how unsightly they are.

Unlike conventional door stops, the Fantom Stop uses a sleek, flush-mounted pin, and concealed rare-earth magnets, with a striker plate that fits underneath the door. This creates a fully-hidden doorstop system that uses high-tech mechanical features to make sure that the door hits the magnet, and sticks, so it stays open as long as you need it to. It's sleek, simple, cost-effective, and built for virtually any door, whether commercial or residential.

FAQ
How does it release?

Once the door has been opened and the magnet comes in contact with the pin, it will draw the pin up from the floor into the dimple in the striker
plate.

Once you are ready to release the door, you simply pull the door handle
towards you and the pin will release from the striker plate and drop back
into the floor sleeve.

How does this release the door?

Once the door has been opened and the magnet comes in contact with the pin, it will draw the pin up from the floor into the dimple in the striker
plate.

How big of a diameter and how deep do you need to drill a hole for this?

A standard 14mm hole in the floor and 50mm deep.

How does this attach to the floor?

You will need to drill a 14mm hole, 50mm deep into the floor to insert the sleeve and pin. The sleeve will need to be secured with silicone. Once dry, you can then drop the pin into the sleeve.

Does it work with carpet floors?

In short pile carpet, absolutely. It is suited to short pile carpet as you
can push the sleeve down into the sub-floor to get good bearing without
going too deep into the carpet pile.

Long/deep pile carpet is harder and not advised due to the gap created
between the door and the sleeve. (Because the door needs to flow over the
carpet and the floor sleeve has to push deep into the pile. More than
likely this will create a gap of more than 15mm max recommended.) We have a carpet punch available.

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION TIP When installing into the carpet, you need to punch or cut away the area of carpet you are about to drill to remove the carpet pile. If you don't, the carpet will wrap around your drill bit and will
cause a run in your flooring. If you don't have a carpet punch, you can use
a Stanley knife or small chisel.

Does this product work for interior barn doors?

No, this does not work for interior barn doors.

Is this the version with the steel or nylon strike plate?

This version comes with the nylon striker plate.

How do you align the pin in the floor with the dimple in the door plate?

You will need to install the floor sleeve first. Once the floor sleeve has been installed, pass the door over the pin, then mark on the door with a pencil where the center of the pin passes under the door.
You will then need to take the door off the hinges and continue the pencil marking from the side of the door to underneath where you will need to drill the hole.

What is the farthest from the floor that the door can be?

It is recommended that the gap between the floor and door does not exceed 15mm.

If the gap is 15mm or more, you can purchase a 5mm Fantom Packer, that can be installed between the door and the striker plate.

This packer is specially designed to bring the striker plate down to an acceptable gap and still allow the magnet to sit down on top of the striker plate ensuring normal function.
