Car Door Edge Guards and Protectors Do Not Provide The Same Level of Protection as Car Door Guards...
Door edge guards and protectors are a popular accessory that helps guard the car door edge from chips and scratches. A car door edge is easily damaged when the car door edge hits a hard or abrasive surface (i.e. a wall or another car door). Without a car door edge guard or protector your door edge can easily be damaged. The narrow diameter of a car door edge makes the car door edge more susceptible to paint chips. Car door edge guards work by providing a barrier that will absorb the impact energy and protect the painted surface. While car door edge guard will provide some paint protection, they are not sufficient to prevent car door dings and dents from occurring. Nonetheless, there are still some people who think that a car door edge guard or protector will protect their car door from dings and dents.
The popularity of car door edge guards makes you wonder why people get these things installed in the first place. The first thought that comes to mind is that people who attach car door edge guards are more likely to hit things with their car doors – why else would you need them. While car door edge guards will protect the offending door edge from damage, your car door will not be so lucky. A cars door edge can easily ding and dent an adjacent vehicle’s door. This is cause for concern to all of us who love our cars and want to keep them ding and dent free. Car door protectors are the best way to prevent car door dings and dents in the first place. Whether you choose a removable magnetic car door protector or a stick on type, you will feel better knowing your car is protected.
*A properly maintained door guard will not scratch your paint. For best results, regularly clean the door guard surfaces and the car door.
