INCEPTION

        As a young girl my sister Sarah was always coming and going  out to play, back for meals and so much more. The door to our family entrance was quite heavy and tended to slam rather viciously when closing.  It was a big, striking door, but a little hazardous for a young girl. My father (see photo), the consummate problem-solving inventor, took it upon himself to make the door safer for she and my Nana.

        My father began researching door closers with great passion and interest.  He bought, disassembled and reassembled dozens of components until he truly understood their strengths and weaknesses.  Yet he was never able to find the hardware that could solve his heavy door problem. After years of study he finally discovered the science behind closing heavy doors in a safe manner for young girls like my sister — he successfully innovated the traditional big, clumsy door closer box into a sleek, efficient barrel design that opens easily and closes safely.  Perfect for Sarah and my grandma!
