"We ordered the Fingersafe products after having a small child lose the tip of one of his fingers. We now have your products on every classroom door in our child care center. We love this product! The design is flawless and the safety this product provides is wonderful!  The protectors were easy to install and match our doors beautifully.  We had a quality committee encourage us to find a product such as this and are very pleased with our decision to go with Fingersafe USA.  Thank you for creating and providing such a great product to keep our children’s fingers safe!"

"A 20-month-old child lost the tip of his finger after getting it caught in the hinge-side of a large metal door. Multiple employees were working at the child care center and all children were well supervised at the time of the incident. As one employee began taking another child outside, the 20-month-old followed and was trapped by the door. Even though the door was equipped with a slowing mechanism, the child was unable to avoid injury. Several surgeries were required because the child’s bone continued to grow through the finger. Eventually, the entire nail was removed and the tip was amputated."

"Real Life Finger Injury" |  West Bend Insurance Group
"Hundreds of thousands of people suffer from door related injuries every year, according to the National Safety Council "Accident Facts".  These injuries range from the simply painful to the disfiguring. People lose fingers in the hinges of closing doors more often than you think.  A new device called FingerSafe® is an easy-to-install strip that covers the entire hinge area, so anything caught between the door and frame is pushed away".
