Sliding Door Crunched an Adult's Hand!
My sliding doors are not receptive to things in the way. I've tried blocking the doors in the past - the LOWER the things are and the more OPEN the door is, the better (faster, less pressure it takes) the response. When things get critical (i.e. when the door is almost closed) it take a HUGE shove to get it to open again. NO WAY a child could provide that shove and I'm becoming worried about kids getting in my van! Recently I was on a day trip with my DD7's BFF and her mom and her mom's hand was caught in my door. It did re-open and she tried not to make a big stink about it while still letting me know that her hand was crunched in the door. She wasn't "hurt" (i.e. no broken bones) but based on her reaction, I'm not sure she'll let her child ride in my van again and I'm worried about my own kids! She was trying not to make me feel bad but I know that her hand was really squashed in the door and it probably hurt quite a lot.
Has anyone had their sensors adjusted? Should I turn off the push-button door feature and use them manually? (That's super lame - the door should be responsive to a person in its path!)
