"A 1/8-in. turn is sometimes all you need."

What the heck is a 1/8-inch turn? Angles aren't measured in inches.

I was installing my new garage door opener on a 16' door and it kept reversing when it was almost closed. It drove me nuts adjusting closing pressure and closing distance. Then I happened to watch it close and every time it reversed was at the beam support at bottom of garage door sticking out to far. I moved it up the door above the light beam and it works fine now. So don't over look the obstructions on your door either.

You do not cover how to reinforce the door prior to hooking the opener to it.
This is important step.
