Safety Check is a visual inspection homeowners can do by looking at the springs, cables, rollers, pulleys and other door hardware for signs of wear. Test the reversing mechanism monthly.  If an object obstructs the door as it is closing, the door should reverse or if the safety beam is broken/crossed, the door should automatically reverse back open.

As recommended by the National Safety Council, homeowners should test the door balance monthly.  This is a way to determine if the springs on the garage door are working properly. With the door in the closed position and the opener disconnected (if you have one), lift the door. The door should lift smoothly and with little resistance and should remain open on its own. If any of these tests show wear or your garage door is not functioning properly you should have the system checked out by Door Boy, LLC.
