Garage doors are probably one of the heaviest objects in use at home. When a garage door opener is improperly adjusted, the door can exert forces and might not reverse during an emergency. The manufacturer’s instructions on how to operate a garage door opener should guide you on how to go about it.
Recently, garage door openers are manufactured to provide a quick release mechanism on the trolley that allows a door to disconnect from the opener in case of an entrapment. These openers also are required to reverse if they strike a solid object for safety purposes.
