"Anyway, this time Willy's been caught selling biting doorknobs to Muggles and I don't think he'll be able to worm his way out of it because, according to this article, two Muggles have lost fingers and are now in St Mungo's for emergency bone re-growth and memory modification. Just think of it, Muggles in St Mungo's! I wonder which ward they're in?"
—Arthur Weasley talking about work[src]

A biting doorknob was a door handle which had been jinxed to snap at the fingers of anyone who tried to turn it. Willy Widdershins was caught selling those items to Muggles in 1995. Two of his victims lost fingers and had to be sent to St Mungo's to have their bones regrown and their memories modified.[1]
