Sure, the Mindr fire safety device sounds great. But how easy is it to install on a bedroom door? Easier than you might think. A Mindr device can be installed and ready in eight simple steps using just a screwdriver.
Step 1: Confirm placement of your Mindr unit. It should be installed on the inswing side of the door (the side with the hinges) and align with the top hinge. Remember, Mindr needs to be in the same room and within six feet of a smoke alarm, too.
Step 2: Remove the batteries from the Mindr unit.
Step 3: Remove the double-sided adhesive on the back of the Mindr unit.
Step 4: Place the Mindr unit on the door by nesting the metal tab next to the hinge and rotating the device toward the door.
Step 5: Hold firm pressure on the adhesive for at least 60 seconds.
Step 6: Using a screwdriver or drill, insert the two wood screws through the metal tabs and into the door.
Step 7: Install the two 9-volt batteries into the tray and insert the tray into the Mindr unit until it clicks. When activated, there will be an LED flash every 30 seconds.
Step 8: Test Mindr by activating the nearest smoke alarm while the door with the Mindr unit is open and unobstructed. If installed properly, the door will close within 75 seconds and reset when the alarm stops.
To quickly ensure your family and pets are protected from fire or smoke, you can easily install a Mindr fire safety protection device on each interior bedroom door. Requiring a screwdriver and less than 15 minutes of your time, Mindr is an easy and affordable way to be proactive in home safety and protection!
