On the doors
Blockystar acts as a door stopper, allowing the movement of the doors, yet protecting the walls and furniture and avoiding slamming when doors open or close.
Placed in the hinge Blockystar keeps doors open. It improves children's safety, because its heightened position prevents children (and pets) from reaching it.
Placed on the floor Blockystar acts as a wedge to keep doors open at the angle determined by the user.
Blockystar acts as a window stopper, allowing the movement of the windows, yet protecting the walls and furniture and avoiding slamming when windows open or close. Placed on the handle it stops windows from hitting walls or the furniture. Placed on the frame it stops windows from closing.
Placed in the hinge Blockystar keeps the windows open. It improves children's safety, because its heightened position prevents children (and pets) from reaching it.
What can I use it for?
In addition to its use as a normal door or window stopper, Blockystar can help to:
- Prevent chidlren (or adults) suffer any damage to their fingers or hands (additionally if Blockystar is placed in a high places, children cannot reach it to remove it).
- Facilitate the mobility of older people by not having to open any doors, Blockystar keeps them open.
- Facilitate housework: home ventilation, quick drying of floors...
Why does it work?
Thanks to its triangular, dented design and its material, the more strain put on Blockystar, the greater its braking force. The physical explanation for this is that Blockystar tends to recover its original shape, exerting an opposing force to that exerted by the deformation.
Usually most of Blockystar braking force is obtained when the curved side is in contact with the floor or wall.
