Benefits of Car Door Guards In Your Garage
Not every garage is like an airplane hanger with so much room to park your car that you never have to worry about parking too close to the wall. Most garages are fairly small spaces – usually enough for one or two cars to fit. When you add everything else you store in your garage, like lawn mowers, tools and bicycles, it’s a miracle you can park your car into the garage at all.
Fitting your car in such a tight space presents a big problem: how do you protect the garage wall from constant collisions with the car door, or even worse, the car itself? The solution is actually quite simple: car door guards. These are padded strips of varying sizes that stick right onto the wall of your garage.
How Do Car Door Guards Work?
When you stick the car door guard onto your garage wall, it acts as a barrier between your car door and the wall. Since it’s padded, the car door will never dent, scruff or damage the wall again.
Likewise, your car door will also stay free from small scratches and dents from constantly hitting the wall.
You can also use car door guards on the back wall of the garage. This will prevent your car bumper from damaging the wall if you miscalculate the distance as you pull into the garage or back in (which is quite easy to do).
Further, many car door guards feature reflective strips that make them easier to see at night or in low light conditions.
Where To Buy Car Door Guards
Car door guards can be found on numerous websites, including Amazon. They come in all shapes and sizes, so finding one that fits your needs shouldn’t be too hard.
If you like to do-it-yourself, then you can make your own door guards. Doing so only requires some simple materials. Pool noodles work well because they’re made of soft foam and are easy to cut into varying lengths.
You can also buy sections of foam at your local hardware or crafting supply store. Just make sure whatever you buy, it can withstand extreme temperatures and constant abuse from your car door. Most car door guards you can buy are very durable and made to last.
