How a Rubber Band Can Tame a Slamming Door

The sound of a slamming door is loud, obnoxious and unnecessary. However, everyone encounters a door that is susceptible to a loud, eardrum-bursting slam, whether at home or at the office.

We hear you (no pun intended). These doors are nuisances. They are wild, untamable, unnecessary evils that must be stopped, but there is nothing you can do about it, right? Wrong!

Tame the noise level today with the assistance of a simple rubber band.


All you need to do is hook the rubber band around the doorknob on each side of the door. Make certain it does not interfere with the latch.

The rubber band will cushion the slamming noise. Any wide rubber band will do for this, and this trick is so easy to apply you will be done in seconds.
