The Shield Finger Guard seems to be an easy and cheap way to prevent door jam accidents. The company is reporting its “must-have newly improved product”:
The new model by The Shield Finger Guard offers one-piece construction, which is easy to install with no tools required! The device attaches to the door’s angular form with a pre-applied double-sided foam-tape. Doors continue to open and close freely. The Shield Finger Guard is available in two versions: one with excellent adhesion that can be cleanly removed for use in homes; and one with a permanent bond for institutions such as schools, daycare centers, hotels and any public building. The improved model comes folded at the compact size of 10″ and unfolds to 39″, half the height of an average door. Two Shield Finger Guard’s will cover a whole door.
Many parents have heard the terrifying scream of a child whose finger was caught in the hinge side of a door. The Shield Finger Guard offers an easy, inexpensive way to protect tiny fingers and hands from one of the most common accidents that occur at home. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that there are over 115,000 finger, hand and wrist injuries involving doors treated in emergency rooms per year; nearly 45,000 of those injuries involve children under the age of 14.
