Our client the DoorJammer wins Double Gold at the recent British Invention Awards in the Consumer product category.
The innovative personal safety gadget was born out of an idea formed by the inventor, (an engineer), during an unscheduled stopover with his wife in a Mexican hotel. The hotel room had a dubious door lock, which suggested that it had previously been kicked in many times to gain entry. That led to sleepless nights for the couple. They had blocked the door on the first night with a chair but had progressively added other items available in the room on each subsequent night.
DoorJammer is designed to fit most doors* found in hotel, hostels and guest rooms as well as in the home. Offering additional privacy and security, DoorJammer just slots under a door, jamming it shut and secure. Its mechanism means that the more the intruder attempts to push and force entry, the more DoorJammer stubbornly stays in place. DoorJammer is easy to fit and can be quickly released by the occupant in the event of an emergency.
DoorJammer , the new travel safety product is suitable for:
Women Travelling Alone
Whether on holiday or on business, a lone female traveller will appreciate having this great little personal safety gadget handy. DoorJammer offers added assurance when staying in a hotel, apartment or hostel in unfamiliar surroundings.
Business Travellers can be confident that their valuables, including technology and information are safe, even while they are asleep. DoorJammer helps to reduce unexpected interruptions during a meeting or important conference calls. ‘Do not disturb’ signs are often forgotten or ignored, usually when the business traveller is suffering from jet lag and trying to catch up on much needed sleep.
Students and Tenants
Students on a Gap Year will often travel alone on unscheduled backpacking adventures. DoorJammer reassures these young travellers (and their parents back home), that they and their possessions will be safe and secure. No matter where their journeys might take them.
Tenants or students living in shared and rented accommodation may find DoorJammer handy for greater privacy (i.e. bedrooms and bathrooms doors without bolts or locks).
Families and Childminders
DoorJammer also offers added reassurance for your family when on holiday in unfamiliar surroundings. For parents or child-minders that need to keep children in the same room as them, then DoorJammer is also helpful. DoorJammer is the ‘early alert’ to the occupant should someone unexpectedly attempt to enter the room.
Not much bigger than a smart phone, this lighweight travel accessory is almost half the weight of an iPad. On sale at £24.99, but for peace of mind priceless.
