If you hear a strange noise, our experts recommend that you inspect the overhead door parts for damage. A loud bang indicates a broken spring. Worn-out lift cables typically make scraping sounds.

You must never leave it in the car and should keep it away from kids as well. It is best to place it on a keychain and carry it around in your bag to protect it from moisture and temperature extremes. It should not be exposed to sunlight for too long.
The garage door bearings may need some lubrication.
