Every year, countless people (primarily children) are
injured when their fingers are trapped between doors
frames when doors are slammed.At the very least, such
incidents are quite painful. At worst,a door slammed
on a finger or hand can result in severe injury and
permanent damage to fingers.In fact,thousands of children
each year require surgery to repair fingers that have been
injured by slamming doors.
and Policy: covering injuries that resulted in amputation between the years
1990 and 2002, the majority of traumatic injuries occur to young children,
males, and the majority involved slamming doors. The study has also shown
that the age groups most susceptible to injuries in such cases were children
between the ages 0- to 2- years old (65.8%).
Slam Jam prevents such accidents while conditioning everyone in the
house to close the door properly by using the handle
Slam Jam is a simple device that is installed on the handle of the door
When the door is opened the Slam Jam creates a gap between the door
and the door frame. From that moment the door can not be slammed or
closed on fingers, pet tails and such, and no slamming noises anymore!
Slam Jam's simplicity, affectability, durability, its design, ease of use
and application as well as numerous technical advantages over other
finger pinch guards clearly put it in the forefront of its field.
Slam Jam 1 minute installation that any body can perform requires no
holes and no drillings.It leaves no traces on the door, frame or the wall.
Slam Jam offers a trouble-free operation. In fact, a person using the
handle is unlikely to notice it at all!
Slam Jam is installed on the door handle in a manner that when the
door handle is held down,the Slam jam will allow the door to be closed.
Slam Jam's package includes two sets of rubber tips in different sizes
and two bolts in different lengths, to accommodate different sizes and
shapes of the door handles.
Slam Jam flexible base allows it to fold against the frame when the door is
closed,when the door is opened the Slam Jam moves and creates a
barrier between the door and the frame, preventing the door from slamming.
Slam Jam's soft rubber sides prevent scratches and other superficial
damage to the door and the frame.Turning the handle as you normally would
retracts the Slam Jam from the gap to allow for the door to be closed.
