The Many Shapes and Sizes of Car Door Protection...
Which One Is Best For You?

We asked 50 car dealerships where the leased vehicles they take back have the most damage, and it was unanimous…the doors! Car door protection is a must have in parking lots and anytime you park adjacent to other vehicles. A door is easily damaged when struck by an adjacent car door or a shopping cart. So how do you protect your car door the next time you park? By using a car door guard, a practical and easy solution to annoying dings, but which one is best for you? There are a variety of products on the market, some stick on to the vehicle, while others attach temporarily using suction cups or magnets. To provide our customers the best advice on car door protection the EuroBumperGuard.com Team put a few products to the test.

Color Matched Stick-On Door Protection: The first product group we tested were the stick on color matched door protection from www.bumperdefender.com. We found the products to have excellent (almost exact) color matches to most of the vehicles we used for testing and found the installation process of the door edge guards and car door protection kits to be simple and straight forward. Our overall opinion of this product was great, when used in combination with each other or another door protection product on the market. It really depends on what type of damage you are trying to protect against. If you are trying to prevent damage to other peoples’ doors from your kids swinging the door open without looking, then the car door edge protectors are enough for your needs. If you are trying to do protect your own doors, you should probably use the car door protection kit, in combination with the car door edge protection for the most effective deterrent. All in all, if you are looking for something to leave on your car, and not have to remove it each and every time you get in and out of the car, then the color matched door guards from www.bumperdefender.com are exactly what you need! Plus, they are colored all the way thru, so no chance of peeling or scratching the paint as a result of impacts from other doors or shopping carts.

Suction Cup Car Door Protectors: The next product tested was a suction cup car door protector, which promised to absorb minor door impacts and taps, easing anxiety whenever parked. The good news: that the suction cups worked nicely and kept the product planted on the door long in the best position to deflect any door coming its way. The not so good news: the suction cups only held the product in place for 5 minutes, after which time product falls to the ground and collects dirt, protecting nothing. We gave this one another try, but this time we wet the suction cup slightly to try for a stronger adhesion to the vehicle’s window. This time it stayed on the door for approximately 10 minutes and again dropped to the ground like a brick. In all likeliness, to make this product work at all, you will probably have to replace the suction cups (if possible). If the find it and fix it method is what you are looking for, the suction cup products on the market may be what you are looking for. However, if you are looking for a product to work as intended (the way you receive it) then these are not the best products for you.

Magnetic Car Door Protection: The third and final product we tested was DoorShox, both the standard and the valet editions. DoorShox magnetic door protector uses three super powerful earth magnets covered by a silicone like rubber feet to ensure the product will not come into direct contact with or scratch your paint. Another bonus for customers…the covering on the magnets is really easy to clean and wipe away dirt using a dry cloth or rag. The magnets definitely hold the product in place, and it sticks out enough from the surface of the car door to offer a lot of protection from other doors and objects. The “bun” or body of the DoorShox products are made of a soft and flexible foam rubber, similar to crocs, which is perfect for absorbing bumps and taps that would otherwise result in a dent or ding. Another great feature of the standard edition DoorShox is that the distance between the “buns” can be adjusted to your needs. The only downside we found is that since DoorShox is magnetic, it does not work on vehicles that have aluminum doors (2012 or newer Porsches, some newer BMW 7 series, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, some newer Infinity SUVs, Mercedes SLSs and some others). Best recommendation we can make is to use a kitchen magnet to determine if DoorShox will work with your vehicle. Overall an excellent door protection option, suitable for most vehicles and parking conditions.

So, what’s the best car door protection? It really depends on your wants and needs… Clearly the stick-on car door protection matched to your vehicles color has some advantages, like one time installation. Whereas, DoorShox is removable and can be stored away when driving so you never change the appearance of your vehicle. The choice is yours!
