CLAWGUARD launches Window Sill Protectors

CLAWGUARD Products

CHARLOTTE, NC — CLAWGUARD, a company that makes products to protect homes from pet damage, recently launched a new product to help pet owners keep their homes beautiful and keep their pets’ paws safe.

This product has arrived just in time, as an increase in pet adoptions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has also led to increased potential for damage around the home. Knowing this expensive damage is one of the leading reasons families return their pets to shelters and rescues, CLAWGUARD listened to its customers’ requests to create an affordable solution: CLAWGUARD Window Sill Protectors.

CLAWGUARD Window Sill Protectors keep windows protected from clawing, chewing and scratching damage caused by dogs, cats, birds and other pets of all sizes. The product also protects pets from splinters and paint chips that could lead to paw damage and a costly visit to the veterinarian. Available in six sizes, the Window Sill Protectors can be used for window sills all around the home.

CLAWGUARD Window Sill Protectors, manufactured in the United States, are made from high-quality, recyclable plastic that is crystal clear to match any area of the home. Additionally, the product requires no hardware, making it easy to install and remove as owners see fit.

“Our Window Sill Protectors are a direct result of customer feedback and add to our overarching belief that pets make families whole,” CLAWGUARD Founder and CEO Kevin Dixon said in a statement. “We will ensure this mission is continued as we grow and develop more exciting products in the future, and we look forward to creating products in response to our customers’ ongoing feedback and suggestions.

CLAWGUARD Window Sill Protectors are available to order at clawguard.com.
