Figuring Out Garages
As house owner, you and members of the family must learn all the safety measures in the house, including the garage door’s emergency release features.
Understanding Garages
Take the habit of inspecting, on a monthly basis, your garage door and its features, like springs, cables, rollers and pulleys, if there are signs of wear. Always ask for a trained door repairman to fix any worn-out parts, as these have been installed under high tension. When you conduct a monthly check on the garage door-opener’s reversing mechanism, do so by putting a 2 x 4 board or a roll of paper towel in the door’s path. Should the door not make a reverse after making contact with either the 2 x 4 board or a roll of paper towel in the door’s path, call for a trained door repairman to fix that for you and, later in the near future, replace with a new garage door that has an auto-reverse mechanism. You must always see to it that the garage door is not partially open as it can suddenly travel further down and hit any object in its path. Require a safety orientation and training of house fixtures to every member in the house; especially children, never to place their fingers between door sections and explain the dangers of doing so. Make sure that when you and your family is away, unplug the garage door opener or else use a vacation lock console security switch which can render the remote unusable. There are many ways for robbers to make entry into your house; one of which is stealing your remote garage door opener or simply your car with the remote control in it. Buy a key chain remote as an alternative way of preventing this unwarranted access. When your remote garage door opener is programmed and linked to your car, as a safety precaution, make sure that you always lock the entry to the inside of your house.
