Your Door Jamb and You

Posted by Doug Kotecki on

One of the most popular anchors we carry is the door jamb anchor from French Creek. So I thought I'd give you a little overview of this handy anchor point and a couple of his cousins.

The door jamb anchor fits snugly inside a... um... door jamb?  Yes, yes it does.   Although it can be used elsewhere as well. For example, wall openings, elevator shafts, rooftops with door entrances, Honda Civics... Ok, maybe not the last one.  If you're looking for specifics, the openings can be anywhere from 24" to 43" wide.

In addition to width flexibility, the door jamb anchor also adjusts into place without the use of tools. So bare-knuckled employees can get this thing into place.

If you're looking for an alternative, you may want to take a look at the Guardian Gap Anchor (no relation to the pompous clothing store). The Gap anchor gives you a little more width (It adjusts from 24" to 51") Plus it can be used with a heavy-duty retractable. Worth the extra coin? You be the judge. That width issue means a lot to some folks.

So, if you haven't taken a look at these products before giving them the once over. You'll marvel at all of the ideas you'll come up with.
