Safinger - prevent door accidents

Doors with hinges have a serious problem (this could be a universal problem). While closing the door the chances are you crush your fingers if your fingers are at the edge. I found this is a serious design gap and must be solved with suitable design solution. Most of the times accident happens with kids and as a parent its a horrifying experience to see your kid in extreme pain.

Design problem

Design problem - Door gap where the chances of finger crush are more

Design solution

Simple design solution - Safinger, product prototype to prevent accidental finger crush

The images shows how the "Safinger" behaves when door opens and closes. While door in open state, it prevents the fingers to go in and thus accidents. While in closed state, the it folds out parallel to door plane.

I need to find out an easy way to install / uninstall this product on doors. There are few options to try out such as install the door with screws or vacuum caps (as shown) or with sticky material (will be tricky to uninstall it).
