...doorstop mechanism...


Explanation:
This is probably a sliding door.

EXTRACT:
Stainless steel sliding door with stop mechanism
FROM:

EXTRACT:
For your protection, both doors feature a delay-stop mechanism, which prevents them from closing if an object obstructs their path.
FROM:

If the door isn't a sliding (corrediza) door, then 'door stop' is the term you need. The 'mechanism' implies that it is a little more complex.
