Your garage door should stop and reverse to avoid any obstruction in its downward path. This means it should only apply minimal pressure to an object blocking its motion. To test this, place a 2×4 on the floor near the center of your garage door’s closing plane and close the garage door. It should stop once it reaches the 2×4 and retract upward. If it stops, your garage door has passed the safety reversal test. If it does not, contact Garage Door Specialist today!
