Luckily there are steps you can take to avoid falling victim to a garage door accident.

Tips for Avoiding Garage Door Accidents

Garage doors are potentially dangerous even when they are functioning correctly. If they are poorly designed or built, they can be especially hazardous. Some tips to protect yourself and your family from garage door-related injuries include:

  • Check regularly to see if your garage door manufacturer has issued a recall.
  • Do not allow your children to play near a garage door.
  • Take measures to keep the garage door closed when not in use.
  • If your garage door becomes damaged, have it repaired at your earliest convenience.
  • Do not leave the button for the garage door within reach of small children.
  • Avoid leaving the garage door opener where it can be played with by children.
  • Get regular maintenance on your garage door system.
  • If your garage door does not reverse upon contact with an object other than the floor, have it fixed or replaced so it does.

These steps will help you keep your family from suffering from a tragic garage door-related injury.
