What can I do to Keep My Children Safe Around our Garage Door?

Q: What can I do to keep my children safe around our garage door?

A: Safety precautions and education are such an important part of keeping your children safe. 

Here are some ways to be proactive with garage door safety:


Have your garage door sensors installed at the ground level. These sensors will stop the door from closing or opening if something is preventing them from communicating with each other. 

In addition, have the automatic opener control button installed at a height small children cannot easily reach.

Furthermore, take the time to educate your children about proper safety. For example, teach your children they need to ask a parent to open and close the door for them. 

Finally, remind your children not to play underneath the door, even when it's open.
