My garage door bangs all night, when the wind blows. What might I do to keep it tight, so it doesn't bang all night?
Tx for any comments.

@OldGrampa,
I'd secure it with latches on each end.

Others will show up with "how".

@OldGrampa,
What kind of garage door do you have?

Perhaps a picture of it might help for better suggestions.

My Tomcat does the same whenever he gets the chance. I usually just lock him in the kitchen.

@OldGrampa,
What about lining the edges with some of that felt-like insulation tape? It would limit the space for the wind to draft through and would deaden the banging noise.
