Garage Door Safety Tips

Residential triple garage with new doors.

In most homes across the United States, the garage door is the largest moving object inside a home. It is also one of the heaviest pieces, making it also one of the most dangerous. Below are garage door safety tips that everyone in your home should know.

Garage Door Safety Tips:

  1. The garage door is not a toy. Yes, automatic garage doors are controlled by buttons, but the garage door openers are not playthings. Garage doors are dangerous if misused, and they can cause serious injury or even death.
  2. Children should never be allowed to play with the garage door operating system.
  3. Never stand under or walk under a moving garage door. Adults and children should never try to “beat” the garage door by running under it and jumping over the sensor. The sensor can develop a shortage and not work properly at any time. If a person were to trip and fall in the way of a closing garage door, they can become crushed.
  4. Keep your eyes on the garage door while it is opening and closing. Make sure no children, animals, or adults try to enter or exit the door while it is in operation mode.
  5. Keep legs, arms, hands, and feet away from door sections when the door is opening or closing. Appendages can become pinched in the garage door panels, causing serious harm.
  6. Keep your garage door properly maintained. Annual maintenance by a professional technician is recommended.
  7. Remember that your automatic garage door uses electricity to operate, and if it is mishandled it can cause shock or even death.
  8. Never attempt to repair a garage door’s springs or cables on your own. If a spring is damaged or cables have snapped, there is still an enormous amount of tension on the garage door. Severe injury and death can occur from trying to DIY a garage door repair.
  9. Always have any damage to the garage door panels inspected.
  10. The push button wall control for a garage door operating system should be kept out of a child’s reach. And remember, a garage door is not a toy or a system to be used by children.

Spring break! Not the fun vacation kind, but was in need of a garage door spring replacement. Bill and his team at Habpro provided outstanding service and communication when we needed it! Also a shout-out to Jared for his installation work...you know you're going to get quality work from a Jared...definitely don't settle for Jerrys or Joshes or Jerrods. Thank you Habpro for getting our garage doors back in business.

Bill responded with in 30 minutes of me asking him to see if he could fix a sagging overlayed 16x7 garage door. 6 other garage door companies all said I need a new overlay door. Approximately $6 thousand dollars. Bill look at photos I sent him and had one of his guys Chuck there the next morning. Fixed the door for less than 3% of what the other guys wanted. He’ll get my business when I need that new door. Honest and great people! No joke!!

Bill and his team were professional and on time. Bill took the time (answered my call on Easter!) to explain the process and price before coming out. Garage door is working again and we are so appreciative!

When my garage door stopped working, I called Habpro. After asking me a few questions, the company representative suggested that I might be able to fix the problem myself. He then patiently walked me through the process of adjusting the garage door sensors. Despite my insistence on paying him for his time, knowledge, and patience, he refused any compensation. I have received services from many companies; this was the first time compensation was not expected. My garage door is working properly and my faith in the kindness of people is just a bit stronger.
