Garage door safety tips
•
While on vacation or away from home for extended periods of time, unplug the garage door opener unit or use the Sure-Lock™ feature on the wall
console, which is an accessory for Overhead Door®
garage door openers.
• Mount the garage door opener control button out of the
reach of small children (at least five feet from the floor) and
where you have a clear view of the door.
•
Consider purchasing a garage door opener with rolling code technology, which changes the access codes each time the transmitter is used to prevent code grabbing. Overhead Door’s CodeDodger® system has been incorporated as a standard feature into our full line of openers since 1995.
•
The Door Report™ is an innovative new remote from
Overhead Door that will tell you whether your
garage door did or did not close. If the garage door
does not close properly, a warning tone will sound
and a red light will flash. This unique feature
provides additional security and peace of mind.
•
Wireless keypads, which activate the garage door
opener with a personal identification number (PIN),
are available for Overhead Door® garage door
openers. This allows family members to open the
door without the use of a key or remote. Never
disclose the PIN or leave it written down.
• Never leave the remote control in the car or with a parking attendant. It should be treated like a house key.
• Always lock the door from the garage to the inside of your home for greater safety and security.
• Check to make sure your garage door is closed
when you lock your entry doors at night.
• Do not let children play with garage door remote controls;
explain that the remote controls are not toys.
• Set a good example for children and discuss garage door
safety with them; explain how to operate the door safely.
•
Test your garage door opener’s reversing mechanism
monthly by placing a 2 x 4 board or a roll of paper towels
in the door’s path. If the door does not reverse after
contacting the object, call an authorized Overhead Door
Red Ribbon Distributor at 1-800-929-DOOR for
professional repair.
• Know how to use your garage door opener’s emergency
release feature. Your owner’s manual provides instructions.
•
Visually inspect your garage door each month. Look at the
garage door’s springs, cables, rollers and pulleys for signs
of wear. If any of these components appear damaged,
contact an authorized Overhead Door Red Ribbon
Distributor for inspection or repair.
•
Do not attempt to repair cables, springs or anything to which they are attached.
These parts are under high tension and require special tools for adjustment. Attempting to repair, adjust
or disconnect can cause serious injury and damage to the door.
• Test the force setting on your opener by holding the
bottom of the door as it closes. Stand out of the path
of the door while you test force settings. Your opener
owner’s manual provides instructions on adjusting the
force setting. Be sure to re-test the new settings after
adjustment. If it does not reverse immediately, the
force may be excessive and need adjustment.
• Use the release mechanism on the garage door opener to manually open the door using its interior or exterior lift handles. The door should lift smoothly with little resistance and should stay
open around three or four feet above the floor. If it is difficult to perform this task, your door may
be out of balance, causing premature wear.
Call an authorized Overhead Door Red Ribbon
Distributor at 1-800-929-DOOR for adjustment.
• To prevent accidents when a garage door is
closing, invest in a garage door opener that
features photoelectric eye safety beams, which are mounted a few inches off the floor and send an
invisible beam across the door’s path. If the
invisible beam is broken, the garage door will automatically reverse to its fully open position. The invisible beam provides added safety to the
auto reverse mechanism, as the door does not have to contact an object in order to reverse. The Safe-T-Beam® is a standard feature on the entire line of Overhead Door® garage door openers.
• Do not remove or cover any warning stickers or labels,
and order new ones if they become unreadable.
