Doors that slam in the wind or because of drafts in the house can pose an incredible danger to family members and pets in the house. Slamming doors also cause irritation, frustration and damage to the structure they are mounted in.
Many a friend has lost the glass from their door. Found cracks in the door framing. Lost a finger or had their kitten maimed or killed. Doors are dangerous.
The force in a slamming door is enough to break wood, slice carrots, kill small pets, do major damage to hands and fingers. We learn to live with the slamming as there were not many options to stop slamming.
One option is a door closer. Door closers are frequently seen on commercial doors. Without proper maintenance, doors closers can fail. They can be set too firm and cause the door to slam anyway. They prevent doors from being left open to catch a breeze. And, a door closer is designed to close a door. Many times, this means closing even if there is a little hand in the jamb. A descent door closer will cost a few hundred dollars.
A new, better option is the SoftSlam. SoftSlam will take the force out of a slamming door making it close softly or rest on the soft slam not closing until you tell it to.
