Guerrero Wedge

What the heck are these colorful wedge thingamajigs? As you might have guessed, they’re door stops, or, alternatively, paper weights, as GENMFGCO suggests. You could also throw one at someone when you need their attention, as they’re made from hard rubber, and won’t hurt them too terribly bad. I’m kidding, of course- don’t throw them at anyone (unless they really deserve it). The larger size will keep a door propped open while the smaller wedge is more suited to leveling wobbly tables.

What is it?

And, now, it’s time for another guess at the game of ‘What is it?’ You see an item made from cast iron, so it’s pretty heavy. It’s in the shape of a scoop, so that adds a little more mystery… what could it be? Answer below.

Magnetic Doorstopper

If you have wooden doors this isn’t nearly as handy, but nevertheless, having the option of sticking the doorstop to something metal so it’s out of the way seems entirely appealing.

Made of rubber, this utilitarian doorstop is imbedded with a magnet, allowing it to be stuck on a metal door or any magnetic surface when not in use.
