  • Monitor The Garage Door Opener: Whether it's a traditional garage door opener or an app on your phone, don't leave what controls the garage door within a child's grasp. The button on the wall inside the garage should also be installed at a safe height.
  • Inform Older Children About The Risks: Once your children reach an age where they can understand the dangers, tell them about how the garage door works, the risks involved, and why they should be careful around it.
  • Test The Door's Safety Features: The obstruction sensors and auto reverse function are important safety features that should be operational at all times.
  • Perform Regular Maintenance: Make sure all of the garage door's essential parts are working as they should. Inspect the torsion springs and safety cables, lubricate the door hinges, and check to see that the door moves up and down smoothly. If anything is amiss, schedule a garage door repair.
