There is every possibility that you’ve been using your door edge guards for the wrong reason. You’d often see these guards on the edges of car doors which will make you wonder their essence. So many people have been getting it wrong all these while because they think it is for aesthetics.
We want to burst your bubble by telling you that aesthetics is not in any way the reason why they are fixed in cars. The purpose they serve is to protect the painting around those delicate areas of your car.
Car doors are highly prone to scratches and dents. The guards act as a barrier to resist minor scratches and dents that can arise from bumps and contacts with some other surfaces.
Ask most Nigerians why they put these door guards and they will tell you it brings out the beauty of their car. I’m glad you now know they are not for aesthetics but to protect your car from dent and scratches.
