How to Prevent a Door from Hitting A Wall or Closet with a Door Stop Hinge

Door Stop Hinge
Do you have a mirrored closet door that needs to be protected from a door handle that hits it when opened? And of course, being a mirrored closet, a regular door stop won't work?
A Review of a Product that Solves the Problem!
Well if so, after a bit of research, I found the perfect door stop to use that literally takes minutes to install, doesn't require any drilling, and won't stand out as an eyesore.
Hinge Pin Door Stops are a terrific little gadget that simply slip into the top hinge pin of the door causing the rubber protector to stop against the door frame and thus prevent the door or door handle from hitting the wall, closet door, or mirrored closet door beside it.
Several of the rooms in our home have mirrored closet doors that happen to be close to the main entry door of the room itself. 
The main washroom in our home is an example; when you open the washroom door, the handle can crash into the mirrored closet door and potentially break the glass. 
The floor in our washroom is ceramic, so a floor mounted door stop would be too much work to install, not to mention the awful thought of drilling into the ceramic!
The Hinge we Installed to Protect
Our Mirrored Closet Doors
So after going on the hunt for a solution, I came across the wonderful little gadget called a 'door stop hinge'. My husband literally put it on the door in five minutes.
We also used one for a door where the door would hit the wall before it would hit the door stop; for years it bothered me that our door was getting marked up, and now, after repainting our door and placing a hinge pin door stop in the top hinge...problem solved.
