A wedge-shaped doorstop is most effective when it sits tightly under the door.
What does forcing the wedge into a tight fit accomplish?
Doing so increases the coefficient of friction.
Doing so increases the force of static friction between the wedge and the floor
Doing so causes the friction to become kinetic friction instead of static friction.
Ghosts. It keeps ghosts from pushing the door shut.
