YES! Every day we’re amazed by the seemingly endless new uses our customers think of that we honestly never even imagined. Here are some of our serious and fun favorites so far. We’re sure you’ll add more to the list.
The Most Serious: Of course, keeping your interior doors cracked allows airflow, but we didn’t realize it also helps balance temperatures, reduces energy cost, improves air quality, and can improve the life of your HVAC by up to 50%.
No, seriously, closing interior doors have a serious impact on your expensive HVAC system. It creates a vacuum that is hard on the motor and also causes it to pull in air from the outside, attic, and crawl spaces leading to unconditioned air and increased dust, mold, and mildew in your home.
Ever wonder why your closed spare bedroom is hot and smells like a cardboard box? Well, now you do. We learned this from different customers who are homeowners and contractors that build homes, install and repair HVAC, and do electrical work. We’re not joking, do a web search on closing interior doors and HVAC. We did, and they’re right! ~ Thanks, Nathan, Dyllon, James, & Richie!
The Most Fun: Needy pets with separation issues can seriously disturb “romance” time. Evidently, TheBoneLock can allow your pet to feel close enough to stay calm without entering the room and being a real bummer. We’re not sure it works with them all, but it evidently works for one couple who owns TheBoneLock. ~ Thanks Shane & Kayleigh!
More Serious: One customer works in his office and is always on the phone. His coworkers get tired of being disturbed by his noise, but when he closes the door he’s either sweating or freezing depending if the heat or A/C is on. He uses TheBoneLock to easily keep his door cracked for balanced temperatures but block enough of the noise to keep his coworkers happy. ~ Thanks Devin!
More Fun: Daniel & Jennifer use TheBoneLock for relaxation time on their screened-in back porch. It keeps the dog inside with their older kids and they can still hear if they’re needed. This gives them peace of mind and lets them have a much-needed evening staycation.
Serious: This one came from us, we didn’t realize it until we had the need. We took care of my wife’s father for 2 years after a severe series of strokes left him dependent with severe cognitive and physical impairments. We used TheBoneLock to keep him in comfortable temperatures and to not disturb him sleeping, while still being able to enjoy the TV, each other, and hear him if he needed us. It really made our lives better, and we have customers who have used it for similar reasons with young children and dependent loved ones.
Fun: Bridgett loves TheBoneLock because she likes to take hot showers and her 150-pound Anatolian Shepherd doesn’t understand that she leaves the door open to let the steam out, NOT to let him in the shower with her. Needless to say, her showers have gotten a lot more enjoyable with TheBoneLock.
Serious Fun: We never thought about it, but a couple of our customers have told us how they love that TheBoneLock is so portable and easy to use because they take it on trips and use it when staying with friends & family. They use it on Quickset 1 or 2, to keep fresh air flowing while maintaining their privacy and keeping out the house pets. Very cool! Literally. ~ Thanks Michael, & Camilla!
