If you have a garage door opener, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand when doing this test. You should be able to lift the door smoothly and with little resistance. It should stay open around three or four feet above the floor. If it does not, it is out of adjustment. Have it adjusted by a qualified service person” (DASMA). Proper installation and maintenance will keep your door safe. Test you door and make sure it has a reversing feature every month. Make sure children know to keep hands and fingers away from joints.
