In the US alone, nearly 300,000 children go to hospital and 15,000 loose fingers each year due to door crush injuries. My son nearly crushed his hand because I forgot to place a doorstop. Almost all door finger guards need to be placed consciously. ‘handisure’ is a self-engaging, child safety doorstop which provides hinge and lock side protection. It is unreachable to toddlers and has a revolutionary ‘smart head’ function which stops the door from closing even if a toddler passes through the door. It is very easy to install, has no mechanical working parts and designed not to damage the door.
