Accident-Proof Your Garage with this Checklist

In addition to a garage parking aid, consider the following elements for a safe home garage. This oft-overlooked area of the home is prone to clutter, which can cause stress and lead to serious accidents. Use this simple checklist to eliminate hazards, improve functionality, and increase peace of mind.

Slipping & Tripping

  • Hoist bulky seasonal items such as bicycles, canoes, kayaks, and patio furniture to the ceiling using industrial hooks or a rope-and-pulley.
  • Store ladders horizontally so children aren’t tempted to climb.
  • Condense outdoor/sports gear -- balls, rackets, bats, gloves, clubs, fishing rods, etc – into large, stackable plastic bins.
  • Store unused garden tools in a separate container; keep them completely covered.
  • Once the floor is clear, clean grease stains and apply epoxy-based paint to repel oil and other slipping hazards.
  • Keep a supply of kitty litter to absorb oil spills.
  • Install motion-activated lights to prevent fumbling in the dark.

Fire, Chemicals & Electric Shock

  • Place combustible liquids in color-coded containers, make sure all containers are tightly sealed -- a tiny spark can ignite vapors.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher near the door to your home, or the garage exit.
  • Equip your garage with a smoke and carbon monoxide detector; change batteries regularly.
  • Keep poisonous liquids – including pesticides, weed killers, fertilizers, antifreeze, motor oil and windshield-washer solution, adhesives, paints and paint thinner – inside locking drawers.
  • Unplug power tools and use plug locks and/or outlet covers to avoid electrical accidents.

The Garage Door

  • Choose manual garage doors that use a counter weight – not a coil
  • Choose automatic garage doors that stop or reverse when they make contact with an object – this could be an automobile or a child’s head
  • Install an automatic light that switches on when the garage door opens


Parking in a home garage can be exceptionally tricky – space is tight and typically lined with valuables. If there’s a teen driver, a senior, or an overworked parent at home, an accident may be a matter of time. Keep your garage clean and well lit, and simplify the parking process with a garage parking aid. These basic devices run about $10-$40 and most do not require installation.

Very happy with garage bumpers.
-- Jean Bates

Perfect use in my garage. No more need to look for a mark on the garage floor, Just drive in until your wheel makes contact with the rubber curb.
-- Dan Eck

Arrived promptly, lining up both cars well in our not-very-roomy 2-car garage.
-- B. Robinson

Exactly as advertised. Fast shipping and a great price too. Also you are recycling. Instead of a tennis ball on a string I put a curb in the garage. Works out great.
-- CL Scott

Excellent, easy to order and delivered on time, garage bumper just what I was looking for and functional.
-- George Fox

I ordered my garage stop late in the day and was expecting the items to ship the next day or 2. I ordered these on a Thursday and so I was not expecting to see anything that day. To my surprise the items were shipped within 2 hours. I have bought online before and have never experienced such a quick response. The Traffic Safety Store truly knows customer service. I highly recommend them.
-- Noel Clemons

Item delivered on time. No need to secure the parking block to the garage using bolts or double sided tape: it is heavy enough to stop the 4Runner.
-- Al Cantoria

Hi: I am very happy, the traffic block worked out perfect. Thank you, Jim.
-- Jim W.

Product works well. Just what we needed in our newly rehabbed garage.

It was great!! I have a big car and a small garage. I back in. I needed a "stop block" to keep me from hitting the stuff at the back of the garage. Very simple, very effective. No hardware required. Shipped quickly, arrived quickly... So simple... nice!
-- R Wraight

Just set them on garage floor and work like a charm. Great.
-- davemelodya

Fast and efficient. My order was processed and delivered to me on time. I had two of the stops in my garage already and needed two more. My two previous stops have held up great over the years.
-- RCrolic

"Great experience. Was concerned the wheel stop would slip but it is heavy enough to keep our pickup truck where it belongs. The service was incredible. Delivered when they said. With all the problems with deliveries being stolen off of porches, it would have been nice if UPS had rung the bell when they delivered so I knew it was there. The only way I knew someone was there was when my dogs barked at the door. "
-- Linda L
