Door Installation Tool Invented by InventHelp Client (TOR-9042)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, is working to submit the Door Dawg to companies in the hopes of a good faith review.

Installing doors is no easy feat. Normally, two trained professionals have to carry it around the site, hold it in place while it is "prepared" for installation, and then position the door so that it is aligned perfectly before they can screw it in place.

To cut down on all the hassle and frustration, an inventor from Conestogo, Ontario, Canada, created a prototype for the Door Dawg. The tool enables the user to transport the door on the jobsite easily. The device holds the door securely while it is being routered for install or while hinges are added.

The unit raises/lowers the door to align it with jamb hinge pockets or mortises to install it with screws. All of this makes the job, easier, faster and more efficient. The invention reduces the physical strain and effort involved in installing a door. In addition, it increases productivity by saving time and effort.

The inventor's professional experience inspired his idea. "I am a professional carpenter and perform many door installations in commercial buildings," he said. "I made my prototype to make the job easier, and it performs very well. Now I do not have to carry, hold, stabilize and balance the door without any support."

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