Door finger guards to keep your little one's fingers safeby Safety Assured Find Best Door Safety Products
Children are curious by nature. They seem positively drawn to reaching their little fingers everywhere they can – including the “high-risk” gap between the door and the door jamb. Not surprisingly, if a child gets their fingers caught between a closing door, it can lead to nasty injuries. This is where door finger guards come in!
Door finger guards are one of the many baby-proofing essentials!
As we mentioned above, children are curious. If they see a door closing, they will want to investigate what is going on and why. That being said, it is also very easy for toddlers to trap their delicate fingers in between the unprotected door hinges. Painful door-related finger injuries are actually pretty common. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), more than 15,000 children suffer from door-related finger injuries each year… and this is in the UK alone!
A door finger protection device can eliminate this worry, though.
Door finger guards can be retro-fitted between the door and its hinge side, preventing the door from closing too fast and trapping your little one’s little fingers. What’s more? Because these safety devices can be fitted to the doors with an adhesive (no drilling or punching holes in the wall required), they do not impede the closing mechanism of the door… or its structural integrity!
Whether the door closes because your enthusiastic child decides to push it a bit too hard or slams shut on its own (perhaps because you left the window open and the wind moved the door), these finger guards will keep your child out of the harm’s way. So, if you are making your home a safe haven for your little one, you should consider fitting high-quality finger guards to all doors to prevent finger trapping accidents.
