In the beginning Our son Oscar was two years old when he trapped his fingers in the hinge side of our kitchen door. He’s not alone. Around 28,000 UK children visit hospital every year with injuries to their fingers from doors and door frames*.
Protecting little fingers from the hinge side of a door is even more important than the handle side because of the huge pressure generated there when a door closes. So after the accident we searched for a door stop to hold our doors tight in either direction.
And when we couldn’t find one, we designed one.
Jamm doorstops – protecting little fingers The Jamm doorstop holds doors tight from both sides at the same time – protecting against life-changing injuries from the hinge and the handle side.
Its unique and patented design works on all floor surfaces, and with all sizes of hinged doors. It slides under the end of the door, and once in place with a grown-up push, its curved profile holds the door fast.
There are five funky colours to choose from, and all Jamm products come with simple instructions. They’re easy to use, and Oscar-proof. Good news for children everywhere.

The Jamm Doorstop has passed the General Product Safety Regulation (2005) specifically for finger entrapment, and we think that’s unique among doorstops.

The Egg roller
Choosing an egg from a basket or bowl was a little too ‘lucky dip’ for us so we designed the Egg Roller. Organised freshness. The Egg Roller displays the eggs beautifully and keeps the eggs in order of freshness – if you need a fresh egg for baking – pick one from the back, or an older egg for boiling – grab one from the front. They can be used in or out of the fridge and each Egg Roller holds 6 – 7 chicken eggs (depending on size), 5 – 6 duck or goose eggs or 3 ostrich eggs if you are really hungry! They also stack one inside another for easy storage.
Did you know…. The yolk is heavier than the white, and when stored in one position the yolk will sink towards the membrane inside the shell, this contact can make an egg go off sooner. As an egg is removed from the Egg Roller the remaining ones rotate 180 degrees, this rolling action stops the yolk sinking and helps prolong the shelf life of the egg.
Thanks for reading all about Jamm – we hope you like our products – there are more products coming soon!
