"I love using the car door mate. The size is perfect to be stored in the door for when needed as it doesn't take up much room especially due to the fact it can extend out. The soft material makes it comfortable to pick up and use also. It's very easy to use and works perfect. It makes life so much easier being able to get out the car and not worry about the car door closing on me if I put too much of my weight on to the door. I feel very safe using it."
"I bought the Arthr Car Door Mate over a week ago for my elderly mother in law, Rita. She is of an age where she still wants to drive her car and keep her independence but she has difficulty getting in and out of the car due to arthritis and failing mobility generally. The Car Door Mate has made such a difference to her in the short time she has been using it. The build quality of the product is first class. You just know that it is going to last for years to come. It stores away in her Mazda 3 very easily and is at hand whenever it is needed. Its given her so much more confidence in getting in and out of her car. In my mind it is money very well spent and great value. I would highly recommend this product for anyone with mobility issues related to getting in and out of their cars."

Frequently Asked Questions
Will The Car Door Mate fit my car?
The Car Door Mate fits most makes and models of car.
How does The Car Door Mate work?
The Car Door Mate is placed in between the car door and the body. It wedges the door open allowing it to be used as a secure aid to help you get in and out of the car. Once the Car Door Mate is placed in the hinge of the door, gradually pull on the car door itself, using it to pull yourself out of the car. You do not put your weight on the Car Door Mate itself - it is holding the door open securely for you to use as leverage to get out.
What makes the Car Door Mate strong and durable?
The Car Door Mate has been made of two different materials - It has a rigid nylon core which makes it withstand the forces put on it, when it's put in the door hinge and it has a soft rubber outer which doesn't cause any damage to the car when it's in use. The Car Door mate has been tested to 350 kgs of force 3500 times, to ensure it's durability.
