Like most mechanical equipment, garage doors and openers are easy to use, and provide tremendous convenience. And like most mechanical equipment, if operated improperly, garage doors can cause injury, or even death. It is very important for you and your family to be aware of potential hazards and to have your garage door labeled to point out these potential danger spots.
Extension and torsion springs, along with attached hardware, are under extreme tension at all times. All tension must be released from springs before any work is performed on the springs, door sections, or hardware. Only a professionally trained service person should relieve the springs of any tension.
As with any door, caution must be used when closing it. Do not attempt to manually close a garage door by placing fingers between the sections as a place to grab onto the door. Serious injury could result! Use the step plate/lift handle or pull rope attached to the door to pull the door closed.
These brackets are attached to the springs, which are under extreme tension. Never attempt to loosen them unless all tension is first removed from the springs. Only a professionally trained service person should relieve the springs of any tension.
Garage door opener, wall control panel, and remote controls: Your garage door opener is a great convenience, but can cause injury if used improperly. Never let anyone "race to beat the door" as it closes. Keep the wall control panel at least five feet above the ground and the remote controls away from children. Instruct children never to play underneath the area where the garage door closes. Always keep the door in full view as it operates and do not leave the area until the door completely opens or closes.
