A lot of garage door problems can be incredibly dangerous. In fact, the great majority of them are. However, if you take a look at the following tips you'll learn what you can do to keep your system at an optimal level.
Make sure you always keep your remotes out of children’s reach for safety reasons
You must teach your kids that the remote isn’t a play toy, and that they might end up unintentionally hurting someone. You mustn’t let them press the button even under supervision, because that will only encourage them to play with it when you’re not around. What you should do is wait until they’re old enough to understand how and when to use it so that everyone stays safe.
Perform maintenance tests every once in a while
While operating your door, pay close attention whether it’s making any odd noises and take notice if anything is out of its place (missing bolts, unwound cables, misaligned tracks, etc.). Check whether or not your door is properly balanced. If it is, test the auto-reverse feature and the garage door force setting. Should you find anything amiss with the door, don’t use it until you fix the problem.
