A unique, inconspicuous and easy to install finger pinch protector guard for door hinges designed to prevent fingers being trapped in opening and closing doors. An essential piece of safety ironmongery constructed of high-quality UPVC to screw fix to your doors. Our door finger protectors are fitted with screws rather than glue for a more durable connection. Hinge guards are a simple way to eliminate liability and avoid an unexpected tragedy.

Door finger guard for push side of a standard door


Fingersafe offers no resistance or restriction to the operation and allows 180 degrees of operation.


It protects the full length of the door.


The MK1A is a flexible, concertina shaped fitting, designed to actually eject fingers from being trapped or crushed in the “push” side of doors.


When the door is closed the fitting is compressed but when the door is opened the fitting extends and provides a protective covering over the hinged space.


The concertina piece lies flat against the frame when the door is closed for an aesthetically pleasing design. The MK1A units are installed by a fixing strip which allows easy access to the hinge for maintenance.


The MK1A is designed for interior and exterior use, it particularly suitable for use in schools, nurseries, healthcare centres, homes for the elderly or infirm as well as residential use. It is commercially specified for restaurants, fast food outlets as well as government and military buildings.


A two year warranty is offered on fair and tear, supply only. Samples may be supplied on request.


With thousands of reported incidents of amputated, mutilated or damaged fingers in doors per year, Fingersafe is designed specifically to prevent fingers from being damaged in the hinged part of the door.


Besides the cost in trauma, treatment and disability the owner/manager of the facility could be held responsible and incur litigation for personal injury.


Having identified a need in the market Fingersafe was developed as the original finger pinch protector guard for door hinges.


“Since 1992 Fingersafe has been closing the door on Finger injuries.”

    We have used Fingersafe for several projects over the years in respect of doors and other areas of our premises which has contributed greatly to making it a safe environment for children attending. Their products are excellent and are installed by their professional and friendly staff. The advice they have given us has proved invaluable. I have recommended them to numerous similar venues to ours throughout the U.K. They are a thoroughly professional and caring company who take pride in their innovative products and always go that ‘extra mile’ to satisfy customer needs and requests. We cannot recommend them highly enough !

    Fingersafe is the product to use! It genuinely offers safety and peace of mind where little fingers are concerned.
    I recently installed one of these units in a Student’s Hall of Residence with doors opening and closing around 500 times per day, so they are definitely for heavy duty purposes. I am always recommending the MK1A whenever I get called out on jobs installing locks.
    Whenever I see these installed in Schools and other places, you can tell that they treat their children with care in protecting their little hands from harm.
    I have been installing these units for quite a few years, so feel confident that they are always of top quality.

    My daughter had started crawling and poking little fingers everywhere she could; there was just enough gap on the door frame for her small fingers to get trapped and if someone then closed the door even a little bit I hate to think what would have happened; we now have these on every door that she can get to and since they were installed no little fingers have been anywhere near the hinges.

    As an added bonus now that she is learning to walk these guards also act as protection from door frames when she falls over in her rush to walk around.
