Recently we had a thread about garage door safety lights. Some of them
have them disabled because they can be a PITA. Let me tell you what I
did this morning.
I started the dishwasher after breakfast. I took out the dish
detergent from under the counter. It is the liquid stuff in a plastic

Maybe I'll use safety caps next time.
