Father’s Day this year falls on Sunday, June 21, which is little more than two weeks away. If you are still searching for the perfect way to treat the special men in your life this Father’s Day, APEX Garage Door and Repair has you covered with practical gifts for the garage. That includes high-cycle garage door springs, smart garage door openers, and ideas to maximize space.
The History of Father’s Day
The first Father’s Day celebration was held, according to history.com, in the state of Washington in June of 1910. It was recognized as an official national holiday sixty-two years later. Intended to be a day in which people can honor all the special men in their lives – dad, stepdad, father-in-law, and significant other – Father’s Day has since been celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June. In 2020, it falls on Sunday, June 21.
Garage Door Springs & More Gift Ideas
Smart Garage Door Opener
Provide dad with convenient access to his garage with a smart garage door opener. There are several models available that, once he connects it to Wi-Fi and downloads the compatible app, will allow him to monitor and control the door using just his smartphone. Additional features, depending on the model, include activity alerts, recurring schedules, and compatibility with other popular smart devices.
High-Cycle Garage Door Springs
Standard torsion springs are rated for 10,000 cycles, which ranges between a three- and fourteen-year life expectancy, making them the most common and dangerous component to break. Broken garage door springs will render your dad’s door inoperable until they can be replaced. If his springs are nearing their expiration, consider gifting him with professionally installed high-cycle torsion springs, with double the number of cycles.
Storage Solutions to Maximize Space
Create space for all his tools, toys, and gear by installing storage racks and wall-mounted cabinets. Ladders, shovels, and extension cords can be stored on a track system. Help ensure that everything has a place in which it can be quickly returned by adding clear storage bins and easy-to-read labels. Making sure that dad’s tools are off the ground will make room for him to park his vehicle each evening.
