Artstarkraft, Inc, a Sarasota company, just announced the launch of a new household safety device called “Doctor Door Stop,” developed by local inventor John Doyle, after his own 7 year old daughter was injured when a door slammed on her fingers.
“My daughter was screaming, I was crying, and so were the ER nurses. Her injury required nine painful stitches and weeks of recovery,” said Doyle, in a recent PRWeb news release about his product.
Billed as ”the only automatic door holder you just set and forget,” the device requires no installation. It’s simply placed anywhere on top of a door frame and “the safety arm automatically drops into place, holding the door open to your desired width. When you want the door closed, simply pull the cord and raise the arm. Re-open the door and the arm drops back into place. “
According to Doctor Door Stop, over 300,000 door related injuries require emergency room visits annually. This simple solution could potentially lower those numbers significantly.
