Childproofing your garage door
Always secure the entry points to your garage and be sure to lock your cabinets as well. You should store any potentially harmful substances or chemicals far out of reach from children. The wall control of your door opener must be high enough that they can't access it. You should also make sure that your garage sensors are working perfectly by testing them regularly.
How to test your safety sensors
It's easy to test your sensors are working properly - all you need to do is place an object under the closing door to see whether it naturally reverses. If it continues to close, this signals a likely issue with your sensors or the reversal function itself which you should get looked at as early as possible.
Add weather seals if they're missing
Adding weather seals to your garage door can save considerable energy at home. These garage door seals are installed between the panels, as well as the frame, and to the lower part of the door. They help to block the escape of air, in turn saving on energy consumption at home.
