Garage door solutions

I'm struggling to find a valid solution for using a sensor on the roll-up door to my garage. I've been using the regular sensors and they'll work fine for a while, then all of a sudden, the cable will catch on it and fling it across the garage. This undoubtedly breaks the clips, which effectively ruins the sensor. I'd love any info on solutions that have been identified by others. I did see the hinge idea one person posted, but I could not visualize exactly what he was saying to do. 

 

Note: We sensor our roll-up, because when it warms up, we remove the interior door going into the house so we can more easily use our garage as extended living space. Plus the door is hinged in a stupid way that makes it collide with the front door when they are both open.
