Title: Vehicle door protective device

Abstract: A vehicle door protector that includes a flat sheet of flexible material that is disposed to substantially overlie the entire exterior surface of the lower portion of the door. The flat sheet is constructed from vinyl and an underlying foam rubber sheet to provide a tough exterior surface and a cushion for articles that may impact the door and cause damage. A flap opening is provided in the flat sheet in registry with the door handle. A number of straps extend from the vertical edges of the flat sheet around the front and rear door edge surfaces and across the interior surface of the door. A connecting ring receives and secures the strap ends in contact with the interior door surface. Decorative notches may be formed near the vertical edges of the door to provide a sporty accent.
