Title: Alarm equipped door safety device

Abstract: An alarm equipped door safety device for engagement at the hinge-side of a door's interface with a door jamb. The device is formed of an elastic body which prevents closure of the door to provide protection against crushing of a finger or object between the door and jamb. To provide warning and protect the door, the door jamb, and the hinges from stress damage, a body-compression activated switch generates a sonic alarm when closure of the door is attempted with the device engaged.
