DIY Garage Door Hatch Guard

Sooner or later I know someone (probably me) is gonna hit the garage door opener with the hatch up.

Hopefully this will minimize the damage.

I don't really want to test it.

I also added a foam grip to the manual handle at the bottom.

I added two rollers. Both bought at Home Depot that were swivel casters.

Re: DIY Garage Door Hatch Guard

That's a great idea!

Of course, I will not need to implement this since my JGC will never see the inside of a garage here at home...the tractor and ZTR live in the one available bay and my woodworking shop takes up the rest of the building that is 44'x21'. LOL
