DoorJamm is a convenient tool to prevent doors and gates from closing behind first responders and professionals in the trades. This valuable tool is light, flexible, fits in almost any pocket, and deploys in seconds. It is inexpensive and stretches to fit most types of doors and gates. Plus, it's weatherproof, resists abrasion and stretches long enough to fit around almost any security door.
Chris B. and Steve K. are officers at a police department in Los Angeles County and while on patrol in their urban environment with the abundant number of apartments and condominiums, they became frustrated by constantly having to improvise some way to hold open security doors/gates they encountered throughout the city. This led to the development of DoorJamm, a reliable tool which prevents doors from locking behind first responders.
It seemed every makeshift door stop they saw had flaws that compromised officer safety. Some took too long to manipulate to put in place (positioning a doormat or putting strips of duct tape on a flashlight to have it available for use during a shift), while some fell out of place too easily (business card or scrap of paper stuffed in the lock). Some options relied on finding a random object at the scene (a rock, a brick, a junk mail bin), while other options required the officer to carry something bulky or uncomfortable (wooden or plastic door wedge).
Tens of thousands of DoorJamm's have been sold worldwide. "We've taken phone calls from police chiefs, watch commanders, SWAT team leaders and patrol sergeants and they all explained after seeing the product, they felt it was a 'must have' tool for their personnel. It's one of those tools you can carry all the time and use it several times a shift on patrol, compliance checks, warrant service, active shooter events and other tactical scenarios." -Chris B & Steve K
