June Is Garage Door Safety Month

At Retrak Door Service safety is job #1 – We hope the following safety tips will help protect you and your family from any potential harm.

  • Do not stand or walk under a moving door!
  • Garage Doors & Openers are NOT Toys. Do not let children play with remote controls, always placing them out of the reach.
  • Teach Your Children About Garage Door and Opener Safety. Discuss garage door safety with your children and explain the danger of being trapped under the door.
  • Teach children never to play under or near an open garage door and to keep their hands & fingers clear of section joints, hinges & other door parts.
  • Do not play “beat the door” (ducking under a closing door) – It can result in serious injury.
  • Know how to use the emergency release,(read cord/handle) in case someone is pinned by the door.
  • When using the push button or transmitter, keep the door in sight until it completely stops moving.

We hope these few simple precautions prove helpful . If you have additional questions, refer to your garage door & opener’s manual for details specific to the model you own or contact us.
