Fitting Tip

Fingersafe® is designed to protect the entire length of the door.  When measuring your doors for Fingersafe® door hinge guards, start from the top hinged side of the door and measure to the bottom of the door. The MK1A door hinge guard covers the push side, if you are facing the door. The MK1B covers the pull side of the door, where the barrels of the hinges are exposed. Fingersafe® can be custom cut on site, or contact us for a custom size. Our pinch guards for doors are perfect because they provide protection and provide minimal interruption to the looks and operation of the door itself.


“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!”

Tiffany Hardy | Director, Child Care Services , Memorial Health System

“I toured a local school and saw the product in action and it really works. They said I was the first one to ever notice it! I think it’s a good marketing feature because it illustrates the dedication that a facility has to the safety of their children. I also toured several other facilities and no one had a finger injury protection product installed. What a shame! This product has to be made one of the state requirements for daycare facilities. That is a win-win scenario for everyone!”

Aki | New Jersey

“I lost part of my right index finger in a school bathroom door. I wish Fingersafe had been installed then.”

Lee Veteto | Safety Officer, U.S. Marine Corps
“We placed two of your hinge guards on two of our 325 foot passenger ferries about a year ago to see if they would hold up to the high traffic of our vessels. These doors open seven days a week, for 16 hours a day at a rate of 50 to 150 times an hour and take a beating. I see no stress or wear on the material of your Fingersafe hinge guards.”
Kenneth Nash | Cape May, New Jersey, Delaware River and Bay Authority

“It only takes one accident to get people in an uproar. It was so easy to solve the problem, we need to spread the word.”
