We do NOT assume any responsibility for any damage or accidents resulting from a customer's use of any type of saw or other tool to cut our finger guards, or installation issues after finger guards have been cut.

To limit your liability, customers must ensure that NO ONE can easily reach the top opening and stick their hands into or rip the finger guard off the door frame.
1. BASIC (Clear) finger guards can be cut with a very sharp knife or a heavy duty drop blade paper cutter. If the tools are not very sharp, you will get a jagged edge.
