Don't Chance It. Check It.™

You may not be able to see or hear it, but your Garage Door Opener may not be operating properly or even safely. Don't Chance It. Check It.™ using the LiftMaster 3-Step Safety Check:

1

Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed photo eyes (black sensors), mounted no higher than 6 inches off the floor.
2

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.
3

Lay an object that is at least 1.5 inches higher on the ground in the door's path, and press the close button. The door should reverse off this object.

How to do a Garage Door Safety Test

You can easily check if your equipment is working correctly by using a few items you likely have in your garage.


1
Children and Garage Safety

Keep tools, chemicals and sharp objects in locked cabinets and always out of the reach of children.


1
Properly store flammable items

Certain common household chemicals can just ignite by coming in contact with one another. Be sure to read warning labels and expiration dates, and store each securely in its own location.


1
Get Organized

Consider installing shelving or cabinets; then label each. You'll quickly find what you're looking for while protecting the items and keeping them safely away from children.


1
Ventilation You Can Live With

Prevent carbon monoxide buildup in your garage by making sure to have a door open when running your car or using any portable, fuel burning heaters indoors.
