I just went through the installation today and discovered a few things that may be of help to others, and might be good to update in the instructions:
There's no mention of which screws to use to mount the magnet to the garage door; the kit comes with 5 different screws. If I didn't know which ones were the sheet metal and which were the wood screws, it would be an easy mistake to make.
TL; DR: the mounting screws for the magnet are the ones with a rounded head, the wood screws are the one with a flat head.
It also looks like the sheet metal screws I got were self-tapping. I still drilled pilot holes, but I used a 5/64" bit. I'm pretty sure 1/8" is too big for these screws, as the holes would have been bigger than the threads could reach.
