Garage Door Safety Information

! WARNING !

GARAGE DOORS & OPENERS CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS!
Here are some simple tips from our experienced staff to keep you and your family safe!

Garage Door Safety Check List:
Never let children play with remote controls or garage doors.
Garage door openers (operators) are not toys. Keep them out of reach of children. Push button wall controls must be mounted high enough to be out of reach for children.

Only Operate The Garage Door If You Can Clearly See The Entire Door:
Keep the garage door and opening in sight until it closes completely.

Avoid A Moving Garage Door - Keep Hands And Fingers Clear:
Do not stand, walk or run under a moving garage door. Hands and fingers must be kept clear from section joints, hinges, track, springs and other door parts.

Visual Inspection:
Look at the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear. If you suspect problems, have an experienced person make repairs.

Monthly Testing
Test The Opener Reversing Mechanism
If an object obstructs the garage door as it is closing, the door should reverse. Make sure the garage door operator is equipped with such a reversing feature. If the door does not reverse, have it repaired or replaced by an experienced person.
Test The Garage Door Balance
With the garage door in the closed position and the opener disconnected, lift the door. It should lift smoothly and with little resistance and should remain open. If the door is out of balance, have the door system adjusted by a person qualified to make adjustments.
Test The Garage Door Up And Down Force Setting
Hold up the bottom of the door as it closes. If the door does not easily reverse, the force is excessive and needs adjustment by an experienced person.

IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERIENCED DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIRS
