Laugh if you want to, but the constant noise of door buzzers on vehicles in service can make make the shop and everyone in it a little punchy after a while. We were already conditioned by having spent a good bit of time in the shop listening to our Project Garage Yukon buzzing at us, so when we came across the Door Buzzer Sanity Tool, we thought its name made perfect sense.
Vehicles with the driver’s – and sometimes passenger’s – door open will bing, buzz and generally make your ears hurt with a constant drone of tone generated madness. The sanity tool — which is simply a loop spring with two arms attached — is designed to be jammed in the door frame and suction cupped to the door to push the indicator stud, thus stopping the buzzing. This makes for a quieter workplace and happier DIYs.
The Sanity Tool will fit in most door jambs, and we feel $12 isn’t a high price to pay for the sound of silence.
