Customer Question

I have too install a new 8' by 10' garage door. The customer wants an opener installed. There is only 1.25ins above the door when it reaches its highest point. I need 2.50 in or more according to instrs. The track already has a 12in. radius. How can I get the last panel to turn away from the ceiling so I can get more clearance for the opener ?

Hello I will help,

How about installing an opener made for situations like that? Sounds like the one you have is incorrect for this application.

I,m installing a Genie belt drive. I looked at a Lift master 8500 but I don't have a torsion spring so they won't work. Any other suggestion?

Hello I will help,

What balances the door if you don't have a spring? Is this an extension spring set?
