It's an interesting idea, but I'm not certain that they would handle a heavier door like an actual house door. I'm just not sure how they would handle the heavier weight of an actual house door.
I took a long look at a couple of my room doors and I think they could handle my hollow wooden room doors for sure. You would probably have to use 2 or maybe even 3, and the installations might be tricky depending on how your doors are configured, but they might just handle this job well.
I'm presuming you have a situation where your door gets caught by the wind or something and causes it to slam. I think they could handle that, if you used 2 or 3. I'm not sure if they would last forever with that kind of abuse, but I could see myself trying your idea.
They are adjustable and they are really easy to install, so it might be worth a try.
