How to make your own door kick plate with the help of a handy online tutorial

I’m sure you’ve been told that a door kickplate is a bit like a door mat.

But what’s really going on here?

Here’s the answer.

Door kickplates can help to reduce your energy bills by using energy efficient materials.

But it’s worth noting that you can make your very own door knock plate with no extra materials.

In fact, you can do it yourself if you have access to the right tools.

Let’s start by making the right kind of door kickplates.


A door kick-plate that fits perfectly into the existing door door frame.

The door plate needs to be as large as possible to make a large impact on the frame and the door.

A common way to make this is by cutting a square piece of plywood to fit around the frame of the door frame or a square board.


The material needed to make the door plate.

A typical door plate is made from a thick sheet of steel and is usually of the steel alloy.

In this example, a sheet of ply wood is used.


A piece of plastic that will fit around your door frame and provide additional support.

A sheet of plastic is used to make these door plate shapes.


A clear piece of polystyrene (PS) material that can be glued on top of the sheet of sheet metal.

It will help to keep the polystyre in place.


A rubber band that will hold the doorplate securely in place on the doorframe.

The rubber band will have to be thin enough to pass through the door’s window.

This is an important part to ensure the door knock is not knocked over.


A nail to hold the nail to the door doorframe that can’t be knocked over, such as a thin piece of nail gun.

This can be purchased online.


A small piece of foam padding around the door that will be added to the inside of the plate if you want to make it more secure.

The padding can be bought online or you can use a sheet or sheetboard.


A couple of screws that will secure the door on the wall.

This should be the smallest you can get away with.

You can get a screwdriver to hold it on with.


A flat head screwdriver and a nail to secure the nail into the nail gun nail.

This will make the nail stick out of the nail, not hit the nail.


A light weight tool to apply the foam padding.

This tool should be at least three times the size of your nail gun or nail gun nails.


A wire cutter to apply a thin layer of foam to the top of your door to prevent it from sliding down the side of the room.


A screwdriver that can cut through the foam pad.

The foam pad is used as a barrier between the plate and the frame.


A hammer to make sure the plate does not knock over.


A tool to drill holes into the foam for the nail or screwdriver.


A drill to tap into the door to drill the holes into it. 16.

A hole saw to drill through the holes in the foam to make small holes in it to fit the nail in. 17.

A pair of pliers to make holes in your door for the screws and nail.


A glue gun to apply glue to the holes you make.


A bit of paper towel to spread glue around the holes to hold them in place for the nails to enter.


A toothpick to cut the foam pads to size so that they can be applied to the window.


A ruler to mark where the holes are going to go. 22.

A sharp knife to cut out the holes for the screwdriver, nail or nailgun.


A large, flat, flat-head screwdriver or a bit of screwdriver with a nail that fits into the hole in the door for your nail to drive into the window to knock it over.


A utility knife to scrape the foam on the edges of the foam.


A paper towel or paper towel paper towel.


A spray bottle to use to apply more glue to your foam pad to make things even easier.


A plastic bag to keep your foam and other materials away from the door or frame.


A paintbrush to apply foam to your door or door frame to make them look more attractive.


A coat hanger to hang your foam pads over the door if you don’t have a door or window.


A roll of duct tape or some kind of thin strip of cloth to hang the foam from.


A dryer vent in your kitchen for the foam and the holes it makes.


A fire extinguisher in your bathroom for the fire foam to catch on the ceiling.


A few sheets of tape to hang over your door and window for the glue to stick to the foam when you’re ready
