MK1-A /Push Side
Designed for metal, wood and steel frames on interior or exterior doors. Allows a full 180 degree opening, then folds flat against the full length of the frame. Blends in with existing door hardware with black, white, brown, grey or almond.
Doors are dangerous! Risk management companies are requiring more eductational and health facilities to install fingerguards. Hinge guards are a simple way to eliminate liabilty and avoid an unexpected tragedy.
MK1-B /Pull Side
This model was originally developed for the U.S. Government. It is secured to the door frame and outside edge of the door, forming a protective seal over the hinge pins.
These outside fingerguards can be installed in medical facilities or bathrooms as a privacy guard or an anti-ligature device.

"We ordered the Fingersafe products after having a small child lose the tip of one of his fingers. We now have your products on every classroom door in our child care center. We love this product! The design is flawless and the safety this product provides is wonderful! The protectors were easy to install and match our doors beautifully. We had a quality committee encourage us to find a product such as this and are very pleased with our decision to go withFingersafe USA. Thank you for creating and providing such a great product to keep our children’s fingers safe!"

"A 20-month-old child lost the tip of his finger after getting it caught in the hinge-side of a large metal door. Multiple employees were working at the child care center and all children were well supervised at the time of the incident. As one employee began taking another child outside, the 20-month-old followed and was trapped by the door. Even though the door was equipped with a slowing mechanism, the child was unable to avoid injury. Several surgeries were required because the child’s bone continued to grow through the finger. Eventually, the entire nail was removed and the tip was amputated."
"Hundreds of thousands of people suffer from door related injuries every year, according to the National Safety Council "Accident Facts". These injuries range from the simply painful to the disfiguring. People lose fingers in the hinges of closing doors more often than you think. A new device called FingerSafe® is an easy-to-install strip that covers the entire hinge area, so anything caught between the door and frame is pushed away".
