Yes it is adjustable and you can get it to stop at 90 degrees, it'll stop just short of 170 degrees or so...

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.

Hi, Yes! The screw let's you adjust the point where the door stops. I have a door that I set that way. Hope this helps.

Yes
It will protect the wall. I used two .. one on each pin as my grand daughter loves to slam bang .. a game of lock out
So far so good

Yes they can. The part with the rounded end can be screwed inwards to open wider or out to make it stop moving at a shorter distance.
