Spring hinges

Monday, November 19, 2012

About a year ago our son had an accident in school. He had accidentally reached through the hinge side of a door. Another boy closed the door and caught our son's finger in it. After investigating the whole thing if the door would have had a piano hinge all the way down the edge he might have ended up with just a pinched finger but instead it just about cut it off. The doctors took hours fixing it. Still to this day fifty percent of the nerves are not there. The school has installed spring hinges on these doors in hopes that the doors closed faster to avoid any little hands that may reach the opposite side.
