Why you need a door stopper?
Many parents don’t realize the danger that doors poses in their home! Did you know that more than 300,000 door-related injuries requiring emergency room treatment occur each year? So, that isn’t including all of the parents who decided to handle the crushed finger at home. You may be asking, why are doors so dangerous? The most dangerous part of the door is actually where the hinges meet.
The children put their fingers in the opening and the door gets closed. The hinge area of a door can reach as much as 40 tons – or 80,000 lbs – per square inch! That makes me cringe even thinking about it! I can’t imagine my little baby’s fingers getting stuck in a place with that much pressure.
