LiftMaster Garage Safety

Don’t Chance It. Check It.™

LiftMaster® has always been a leader in safety, quality and innovation. Now, LiftMaster has created Don’t Chance It. Check It.™, a national campaign designed to boost awareness of garage safety and encourage you to check your garage door and opener to make sure it is operating properly.

Give Your Garage Door and Opener a Checkup

You may not be able to see or hear it, but your garage door may not be operating properly, or even safely. Don’t Chance It. Check It. with these 3 easy steps. See how easy it is to perform the 3-Step Safety Check.

Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed Photo Eyes (black sensors) mounted no higher than 6 inches off the floor.

Block the Photo Eye with an object over 6 inches tall and press the garage door opener’s close button. The door should not close.

Lay a 1.5 inch-high object on the ground in the door’s path and press the close button. The door should reverse off this object.
