A sci-fi teen book from the 90's?

I keep remembering a book that I read growing up in the 90's and I cant find it online. The storyline was about a couple of kids who discover a portal to another world/planet/dimension in their garage/barn, and they could send and receive objects from both sides.
I remember that when receiving an object from the portal they could see it fuzzy and in the distance, and judging by how far away it looks they could determine how many days/hours it would take to get to Earth.
I remember at first they received an alien clock with light up dots, and the climax of the book was that they saw an extremely large object with hundreds of teeth on its way to them and they struggled to close the portal.
Any ideas? Im fairly certain this one wasnt a dream. :)
