I needed something sturdy for outward swinging French doors. Because I live in a slightly windy area, I wanted the base to be secure, and thought a "hook" to the door would maintain a solid hold. I chose not to use screws for the hook holder; my door manufacturer suggested heavy duty mounting tape, rated for outdoor use. So far, it's working great! This isn't delicate looking, however; it's the weight of something you might see on a boat.
I have a weakness for high quality solid brass hardware in our 1902 building. This item is a fine example of what I like. Given other reviews about the accompanying screws sometimes shearing off, I used steel screws instead. I didn't try the brass screws. I couldn't rank instructions; none were provided, but installation is pretty obvious.
