The Ives Wall Door Stop / Holder WS45 was introduced about 50 years ago as the Glynn-Johnson W45A or GJW45A. When they were purchased by H.B. Ives, it became the WS45. They are constructed of cast Brass or Bronze and then plated to the desired finish. This door stop is unique because the wall does not have to be parallel to the door for it to latch and hold the door open. Spring loaded roller rides up the face of the strike, seating itself on the strike, holding the door firmly in the open position. A heavy rubber pad cushions the shock and absorbs the sound. With unit mounted on door and the strike on wall, vertical adjustment is available on body. The strike is adjustable 45 degrees left or right, both adjustments easily accomplished at time of installation or at a later date. WS45 strike is furnished with wood screws for drywall mounting.
