Doors are Dangerous! New safety product for Ages 0-4

As a parent you want to do everything you can to prevent a needless injury. Do not overlook protecting the dangerous hinged end of your doors. Installing finger pinch protection devices only takes and few minutes and should be a priority on your child proof list. Children do not realize the dangers of a door “slam” until it is too late. As a parent, I immediately felt a sense of relief after my own children’s bedroom door was protected. When my girls had friends over playing who did not know the house rules I could show them our Fingersafe device and explain why “doors are dangerous”! We recommend that you child proof your doors as soon your children can crawl.

To fully child proof your doors, do a walk through every entryway your children have access to and note:

  • What are the top 3 areas where a child my rest their hand on a door frame where another person could shut the door or a draft could slam the door shut?
  • These are normally: the garage door entryway, bedroom, and playroom door.
  • Fingersafe HOME can be applied with adhesive supplied, or screws if you plan to raise it more than 40″ as your child grows.

All parents should also be educated on what to do incase of a finger amputation or injury. Clean, cover, and elevate! If there is an amputation do not put the finger on ice but have cool packs, gauze, a small cooler ready and know what to do incase an E.R. visit is necessary. We have heard first hand from several parents whose children could not have their finger attached due to the time delay in seeing a doctor or a portion of the finger being left at the injury site. An unexpected door slam is a sudden, dramatic event that catches everyone off guard. Any door outfitted correctly with Fingersafe guarantees that a hinge side injury can not occur but ALL doors must be protected.

Door safety prevention? Check! Door injury preparation? Check! Now relax while the kids play safe with Fingersafe!

“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 with Fingersafe USA. Thank you for creating and providing such a great product to keep our children’s fingers safe!”

Tiffany Hardy | Director, Child Care Services , Memorial Health System

“I toured a local school and saw the product in action and it really works. They said I was the first one to ever notice it! I think it’s a good marketing feature because it illustrates the dedication that a facility has to the safety of their children. I also toured several other facilities and no one had a finger injury protection product installed. What a shame! This product has to be made one of the state requirements for daycare facilities. That is a win-win scenario for everyone!”

“I lost part of my right index finger in a school bathroom door. I wish Fingersafe had been installed then.”

“We placed two of your hinge guards on two of our 325 foot passenger ferries about a year ago to see if they would hold up to the high traffic of our vessels. These doors open seven days a week, for 16 hours a day at a rate of 50 to 150 times an hour and take a beating. I see no stress or wear on the material of your Fingersafe hinge guards.”
Kenneth Nash | Cape May, New Jersey, Delaware River and Bay Authority

“It only takes one accident to get people in an uproar. It was so easy to solve the problem, we need to spread the word.”
