How does it grip the doorknob, looks like it would slip and you'd have a hard time actually opening the door? I would sew a piece of that rubber rug grip/cupboard mat stuff inside.

The elastic or rubberband will keep it on the door knob, but I have always used it on door knobs that are not opened and closed a lot. Such as linen closet door, etc. If you need a tighter fit than the rubberband, just thread a piece of yarn through the last row and tie it as tightly as you like to the door knob.
