This Sunday is Father’s Day, celebrated annually in the United States on the third Sunday of June since being recognized as a nationwide holiday in 1972. While people celebrate the father figures – dads, step-dads, husbands – in their lives in various ways, the National Retail Federation (NRF) projects record Father’s Day spending of $20.1 billion this year, with 75 percent of consumers planning to celebrate.
According to the NRF, popular gift categories include personal care and home improvement tools, with many consumers planning to treat dad to a special outing. But are you still looking to present your dad or husband with the perfect gift? Here are some practical garage-related ideas that he is sure to love. Also, if he mentioned or you noticed the garage door malfunctioning, having a garage door repair professional service the door to ensure it operates safely and reliably is essential.
Today’s organizational solutions run the gamut from freestanding shelving units to wall-mounted storage cabinets and everything in between, including slat walls and overhead options, the latter of which is often adjustable. There are several factors to consider when choosing between these options, including the available floor space and your dad’s hobbies. As a bonus, mainly if the garage is a cluttered mess, you may want to consider spending time with your dad decluttering and organizing its contents.
Smart Garage Door Opener
Many garage doors are still operated by noisy, chain-driven garage door openers, which may interfere with his sleep schedule – perhaps even yours. Sound familiar? Innovative garage door openers with a belt drive are guaranteed to work not only quieter but, once connected to his home wireless connection, more intelligent. After the opener has been professionally installed and set up, all he must do is open the compatible app on his smartphone to monitor and operate the door from anywhere, anytime.
A Durable Garage Workbench
Do the father figures in your life enjoy do-it-yourself projects or restoring classic vehicles? Support their hobby by presenting them with a heavy-duty workbench or the materials necessary to build one from scratch. Whether building or buying a workbench, look for plans or a product with a high weight capacity. Use the surrounding space by installing a pegboard above the workbench with hooks and bins so that all his tools and parts are easily accessible.
High-Cycle Replacement Torsion Springs
Among some of the most practical gift ideas, especially for dad’s always on the go, are high-cycle replacement torsion springs. These springs offer twice the number of cycles than standard springs, twenty- and ten-thousand respectively, making them ideal for households with two or more drivers and those who operate the door more than four times per day. Torsion springs are under immense tension, which allows them to support the door’s weight during operation; therefore, they must be installed by a garage door repair professional.
