Life hack: A smart way to protect your car doors 5



View Profile

Have ever driven your car or perhaps your partner has driven you home and into the garage and there isn’t much room between the wall and your car door? Accidents happen and many people experience the dismay of hearing a crunch as the door collides with the wall. If you want to prevent this from continuing all you need is 2 unlikely objects: a pool noodle and a piece of wood.

Take the wood and attach it to your garage wall. Use the a pool noodle that has been sliced in half to wrap around the wood and this will create a soft barrier for next time your door swings towards the garage wall.


Do you have any other useful ways to use a pool noodle?

  1. my daughter had something similar in her garage only not a pool noodle and it was put there by the previous owners.

  2. Yes I use a pool noodle on the beam of my automatic gararage door so the tailgate of my wagon is protected when I open it.

  3. My biggest problem was when I was working. I would park the car in the carpark at the railway station and would often found scratches because people just open their door and don’t care.
