    This happened to a driver I know .
    Never stand in the cargo area of your p57 and reach with your right hand and slam the bulkhead door shut.
    The cord got wedged between itself and that ridge that runs down the door,and broke the middle finger.
    The fingertip was on a 45 degree angle with a bone popping out just past the fingernail.
    The doctor had to use a scalpel to remove to top of the nail in order to snap the bone bsck to its relative position .
    Sleep was next to impossible after the hospital visit.
    He wont be playing stairway to heaven for 6 weeks.

    Did that one time to a helper. The old heavy wooden doors? remember them? Got all four fingers. Took some long minutes to get the door unlocked because of the extra force against the lock.

    Never will forget the look on his face..............

    By the way, I know some really neat tricks to get your therapy going.

    Has anyone had any experiences with the horizontal sliding doors. First time I shut one, I found out that both doors shut at one. Even if your hand is in the middle....

    We had a driver shut his rear door while talking to some kids. Was standing on the rear bumper. Used his had between the sections to help pull it down and got three hung between the panels. Door was locked, key in his right pants pocket, with his right hand pinched in the door.

    He had to get help to get the key out and get the door unlocked.

    Even now, you can still see the three oval dents it made in that seam.

    DS....Ah.... tell the driver we feel his pain and wish [-]you[/-]......ah ... him the best!
