Before you begin:
• Disable locks.

To prevent possible SERIOUSINJURYOR DEATH:
• ALWAYScall a trained door systems technician if
garage door binds, sticks, or is out of balance. An
unbalanced garage door may not reverse when
required.
• NEVERtry to loosen, move or adjust garage door,
door springs, cables, pulleys, brackets or their
hardware, all of which are under EXTREMEtension.
• Disable ALL locks and remove ALL ropes connected to
garage door BEFOREinstalling and operating garage
door opener to avoid entanglement.

• Remove any ropes connected to garage door.
• Complete the following test to make sure your
garage door is balanced and is not sticking or
binding:
1. Lift the door about halfway as shown. Release
the door. If balanced, it should stay in place,
supported entirely by its springs.
2. Raise and lower the door to see if there is any
binding or sticking.
If your door binds, sticks, or is out of balance, call a
trained door systems technician.

Planning
Identify the type and height of your garage door.
Survey your garage area to see if any of the
conditions below apply to your installation. Additional
materials may be required. You may find it helpful to
refer back to this page and the accompanying
illustrations as you proceed with the installation of
your opener.

Do you have an access door in addition to the
garage door? If not, Model 53702 Outside Quick
Release is required. See Accessories page.
Look at the garage door where it meets the floor.
Any gap between the floor and the bottom of the
door must not exceed 1/4" (6 mm). Otherwise, the
safety reversal system may not work properly. See
Adjustment Step 3. Floor or door should be
repaired.

Depending on your requirements, there are several
installation steps which may call for materials or
hardware not included in the carton.
• Installation Step 1 - Look at the wall or ceiling
above the garage door. The header bracket must
be securely fastened to structural supports.

SECTIONAL

• Installation Step 5 - Do you have a finished ceiling
in your garage? If so, a support bracket and
additional fastening hardware may be required.
• Installation Step 10- Depending upon garage
construction, extension brackets or wood blocks
may be needed to install sensors.
• Installation Step 10 -Alternate floor mounting of
the safety reversing sensor will require hardware
not provided.

DOOR INSTALLATIONS

• Do you have a steel, aluminum, fiberglass or glass
panel door? If so, horizontal and vertical
reinforcement is required (Installation Step 11).
• The opener should be installed above the center of
the door. If there is a torsion spring or center
bearing plate in the way of the header bracket, it
may be installed within 4 feet (1.2 m) to the left or
right of the door center. See Installation Steps 1
and 11.
• If your door is more than 7 feet (2.1 m) high, see
rail extension kits listed on Accessories page.

SECTIONAL DOOR INSTALLATION
FINISHED CEILING

Horizontal and vertical reinforcement
is needed for lightweight garage doors
(fiberglass, steel, aluminum, door with
glass panels, etc.). See page 23 for details.

DOOR INSTALLATIONS

• Generally, a one-piece door does not require
reinforcement. If your door is lightweight, refer to
the information relating to sectional doors in
Installation Step 11.
• Depending on your door's construction, you may
need additional mounting hardware for the door
bracket (Step 11).

Without a properly working safety reversal system,
persons (particularly small children) could be
SERIOUSLYINJUREDor KILLED by a closing garage
door.
• The gap between the bottom of the garage door and
the floor MUST NOT exceed 1/4" (6 mm). Otherwise,
the safety reversal system may not work properly.
• The floor or the garage door MUST be repaired to
eliminate the gap.
