Is your garage door wall control panel mounted five feet above the floor?

SAFETY TIP: Children playing with the garage door wall control panels of your automatic garage door opener can lead to accidents that might cause either personal injury or property damage. We recommend that you educate your child about the potential dangers of playing with the wall control panel. As an added safety measure, we recommend mounting your garage door wall control panel at least five feet above the floor, out of the reach of young children.

When needed for wheelchair access the control can be mounted lower but it may be advisable to use a portable garage door transmitter or numeric keyless entry pad in households with young children.

Remember that your garage door is not a toy! If you are located in N/NW Chicago or suburbs contact us at for professional garage door service.
