The cellar stairway in one of our older homes has very low headroom, against which and I and tenants unthinkingly sometimes bump our heads when going down to or coming up from the cellar
Does any one know if there is any kind of a tiny flashing light device that might be be available that we could attach to the lowest corner of this passageway to alert us? If so, I am sure this would help a great deal in solving this problem.
Thanks for any and all suggestions !

Why not just hang some kind of cloth or paper streamer as a reminder to duck? --96.237.xx.xx

2" pipe (foam) insulation.
Cut down the middle and staple to outside corner.
Put a can there and whoever hits their head,
drops in a Quarter.

That what Swim Noodles are for!
A note on the door/ floor as a reminder --99.203.xx.xxx

Reflective tape maybe? --73.248.xxx.xxx

What memories this brings back. We had a stairway like that in the house where I grew up, except it was coming down from the second floor where our single bathroom was so we went up and down several times a day. Lucky for us, we were all short and it wasn’t much of a problem but I learned early on not to come bouncing down the stairs. My brother-in-law was not so lucky, being 6 feet tall, he knocked his head several times. Unfortunately, I don’t think a flashing light would be as helpful as you think . Pretty soon people would get used to it being there and ignore it like they ignored the wall. --74.140.xxx.xxx

I think I once saw a bright yellow reflective sticker, about 12” X 6” for sale online.
In the shape of a duck. --70.92.xxx.xxx

Tiny flashing light device ....hmmm... some people react very negatively to strobe lights, flashing lights, especially when light hits the retina just right. The people I know with seizure disorders/ autism avoid them.
Seizures on the stairs. Oh boy ! This could be fun. --70.92.xxx.xxx

Steve you stole my idea. RB,another good idea that could bring in some untaxable cash flow. Plenty,how about bright orange swim noodle. AllyM,could get some ICC bumper tape. Doris,he could use a helmet. Busy,how about a duck crossing sign and the flashing light would mess with my ADHD and OCD were there is too much going on in my head already,lol. --73.120.xx.xxx

How about a blinking taillight for a bicycle? Cheap, small, easy to mount, and they are LED so batteries can last. --174.21.xxx.xxx

In one cellar there is a low pipe that people were always hitting their head. So I got a bright swim noodle and put a rope thru it. I strung it about a foot way at the same level of the pipe on both side (in this case) So if you are not paying attention,maybe looking down,..you hit that soft and swinging noodle and it really wakes you up soon enough that you don't hit the solid pipe,..I suppose you could adjust the length of the noddle and the hard surface as you see fit.

When you two bump your heads against the beam, just don't break the beam! --99.59.x.xxx

I'm tall. Used to this problem.
Foam pipe wrap or swim noodle.
I like Hollis's idea of a bumper before the hard spot. First thought was the tube hanging over your car as you enter the parking garage.
This video is for Chuck and all the tall people www.youtube.com/watch?v=USu8vT_tfdw&t=49s
They added a height sensor and flashing sign, but trucks still drive thru.
