"My newborn began walking at 6 months. My granddaughter accidentally slammed the door on my 6-month-old’s fingers, and they swelled up," said an inventor from McKinney, Texas. "This inspired me to come up with a way to prevent doors from slamming on fingers."

She developed the SAFETY FINGERS to prevent the door from closing. This keeps fingers from being injured by a closing door, which reduces the risk of injury to the hands and fingers. The unit serves as an alternative to a boring doorstop. It allows the door to remain open to let in fresh air. In addition, the device makes it easier for pets to come and go.

The original design was submitted to the Dallas office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
