Almost everyone has an automatic garage door opener these days.  We certainly appreciate the convenience of being able to pull into our garages without having to stop, get out of the car to open and close the garage door.  Seldom do we think about the safety issues that come with having such convenience.

Automatic garage doors need to be checked from time to time to be sure they stop when they meet an object, like our car or worse yet our children and pets.

Here's a wonderful video that explains the process of inspecting an automatic garage door.  It's a handy tutorial for homeowners who want to keep up with their home maintenance and homeowners getting ready to sell their homes.
