I don't know about an official name but most refer to it as a "Door Limiting Strap".

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Quadratec calls the nylon ones "door check straps" and the aluminum ones "door stops"

At least I am pretty sure anyway.

If you have windshield mounted mirrors you may find that the straps allow too much travel and knock the mirrors. I created 'adjustable' straps with 1/8 braided steel cable and cable clamps from Home Depot.
