Can it be adjusted to only allow the door tobopen 90 degrees?

Roughly yes, but it's really slightly more than 90 degrees. My basement door opens out of a flat wall, so when the door is 90 degrees open, it's like the stem of a T with the wall being the top part of the T.

My basement door opens out of a flat wall, so when the door is 90 degrees open, it's like the stem of a T with the wall being the top part of the T. I added the doorstop to prevent the door swinging farther open and hitting a duct that gets hit when the door is open around 120 degrees. The door does swing a little past 90 degrees, because its momentum carries it, and the hingestop has a rubber head, which absorbs the impact and flexes. So when the adjustable screw threads are such that the non-rubber end of the screw-like piece is flush with the edge of the holder part, the door can only swing 90 degrees (plus a little more, because of the impact getting absorbed. So generally, "yes". But really it only stops the door at slightly past 90 degrees. If your door is up next to a wall corner though, then it works flawlessly. It's just that my door is in the middle of a long, flat wall, and not at a corner, where there's a 90 degree wall for the hingestop to press against. see less Roughly yes, but it's really slightly more than 90 degrees.
