Only regret - I didn't buy the 10-pack to start with
Loved these doorstops. They look good and function well. I bought one and it was brilliant. I was actually able to put it in without drilling a pilot hole ... I literally used my bare hands to do most of it, and did the final bit screwing it in with a wrench. I didn't realize there were more traditional ways to screw these in, but if I can literally use only my hands, perhaps that's a way to go if you're having trouble. Perhaps I got "creative" because there weren't really good installation instructions included, and I just winged it.
One review indicated they weren't good when stepped on, but I haven't tried stepping on any recently. All the doors open to places where people don't normally go; and all of the stoppers are functioning wonderfully. I should also note that, as compared to other stoppers -- including ones available at Lowes -- do not function quite as well. I wish we had bought more of these at the outset rather than experimenting our way through about four other door stoppers (two of which were available on amazon, including one magnetic option).
They do what they need to at a good price, they are pretty straight forward to install, and the look good.

Looks OK, but unnecessarily difficult to install
The doorstop has a solid feel, but the plastic cap has a noticeable blemish. I liked that the bronze doorstop is available with a cap in a matching color (reasonably close, not perfect) instead of white. Installation is more difficult than it should be on such a simple product: there's a tiny hole in the cap that lets you insert a jeweler's screwdriver, nothing larger. That doesn't offer much purchase, and I didn't want to mar the finish of the doorstop by wrenching the square body. I ended up drilling a slightly larger pilot hole than I would have then hand-screwing the doorstop. Most products like this have a removable cap over a big screw slot, which makes installation a breeze.

Great value for the price, but screw is a bit wider than previous doorstops
Great value for the price! I bought several of these to replace the 1980s style, brass plated, spring-style doorstops. Every single doorstop in my house, to be exact. Not only were the old 1980s doorstops hideous, but my cats also discovered that they could bat at the springs, over and over and over agin, to produce this godawful BOINGA!BOINGA!BOINGA!BOINGA!BOINGA!!! sound. Over and over again. At three o'clock in the morning.
My only compliant is that the screw was a bit thicker than the screw from my original doorstops, so I did have to get out the power drill and enlarge the hole.
