Dad and industrial shop owner tired of slamming doors and disappearing door stops invents a permanent and simple solution that can be used on most doors.
Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2014 -- The creators of the Door Bungee have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their innovative and much-needed initial product. The Door Bungee is a wall-mounted permanent door stop that can be painted or customized in almost any way imaginable. The heavy-duty bungee stores easily around the strong hardened plastic so it’s ready to go at a moment’s notice, and its unobtrusive design can fit into almost any environment easily. It also serves as a protection for the wall where handles can make holes or indentations.
“The Door Bungee is a simple solution from a simple guy trying to solve a common problem for people worldwide.” said Steve Kaufmann, inventor of the Door Bungee. “I was tired of hearing the heavy door slam in my shop and worried about my daughters little fingers being pinched by that door. I knew there was a better way to hold the door open securely than what is currently out there, so I came up with this solution.” The original Door Bungee was created from a piece of wood and elastic hairband.
The creators are seeking an initial round of funding by offering a significant discount to early supporters of the product. Initial reception of the Door Bungee has been very positive with requests for multiple units once they become available. The Door Bungee is ready to be manufactured in the United States and is anticipated to ship by early November, 2014.
“We know that people will love the Door Bungee as much as we do and we’re excited to get it out there and into people’s hands.” Kaufmann said. “If I can save parents the agony of hearing their children’s cries, I will be a happy man.”
