Door Hinge Hole Rapir. Caps/Covers?

I have two hollow doors that have holes in them from where the door stop has punctured through. Instead of replacing the doors, I was hoping there was something I could use to patch the hole. Something like a cap that I could use. Maybe drill out a hole and then plug it with a cap.

Anyone seen anything like this?

You could put a kick plate across the bottom of the door. It would be a metal plate that goes across the bottom of the face of the door. They are available in various metal finishes. I don't know of anything you would use to try to patch the hole that would hold up if it is in the hollow portion of the door.

Many home centers sell plastic discs with an adhesive backing that can be stuck on walls to protect from door knobs hitting. It might work on the door. It could cover the hole and spread the load over a broader area so the stop hopefully won't poke through again.

You might get by with cutting the damage out to a square hole and then cutting and gluing in a piece of wood then applying a thin coat of spackling or joint compound over, sand, prime and paint.

I have used contact paper in wood grain of all things. Just cut a circle out a little larger than the hole you have and glue it to the door matching the direction of the grain and smoothing it out with a credit card edge. It isn't too obvious.

.... I forgot to mention earlier get rid of that type of door bumper/stop!! they always cause damage because they contact the weakest part of the hollow core door. It's better to have one mounted to the baseboard where it will contact the door in an area that isn't hollow.
