I Woke Up to a Man Standing Next to My Bed - A Cautionary Vacation Tale - There’s been a lot of news lately about the dangers of vacation travel — especially to the Dominican Republic.

Before committing to buy, please use this test to determine if HAVEN will work on your door.
1. Your door opens inward.

2. The Nickel Test
HAVEN is 0.8 inches high and should fit in the clearance path of most modern doors. A standard USD Nickel can be used to gauge the gap perfectly. Take a nickel, stand it on its end and make sure that it can pass under your door.
3. My floor will work with HAVEN.
HAVEN will need to sit firmly on a hard/clean surface: wood, vinyl, linoleum, ceramic tile, or concrete are all likely compatible.
Your door needs adjustment.
If you are into doing things yourself, check out our install guide for details on how to get your door ready for Haven.
Haven can work on a variety of different floor types. As long as Haven can be firmly secured to the subfloor, Haven will be fully functional. Ideally, the installation screws will be drilled at least one inch into the subfloor. Different floors may need different tools for installation.

Congratulations! You have passed the compatibility test!
Your door and/or floor may need some tweaking, but in most cases adjustments can be made to make HAVEN work for you. Please consult our install guide for more detailed information about installing HAVEN.
