Keep Your Garage Door Working With This Simple Toilet Paper Trick
Garage door sensory systems can be affected by strong rays of sunshine that hinder the infrared light from the sensors. To solve this, all you need is an empty toilet paper roll.
Simply cut about 2 inches off the toilet paper tube to make sure it isn't so long that it blocks the sensor completely and prevents the garage door from doing its job.
Slide it over the garage door sensor so it’s directly centered over the sensor's eye, which can be identified by the electronic light placed front and center of your garage sensor.
Ensure the tube is longer than the sensor but not so long that it doesn't stand still over the electronic eye. Use duct tape or any preferred adhesive to secure the tube in place.
