When the power goes out, your car isn’t trapped inside your garage. You can easily open the door manually! Before you begin, make sure your garage door is closed and that nothing is in the sensor’s way before it comes down. Now, it’s time to open the door.
All garage doors have a manual release. What is it?
The manual release is typically a red cord hanging down from above the garage door. The release has a lever that you can pull straight down to open the door. Pulling the cord down disconnects it from the trolley, the mechanism that moves the door up and down. Once you’ve pulled the red cord down, you’re ready to manually lift up your garage door!
When you’re ready to close the garage door, pull the cord down towards the door which will reattach it to the trolley. Then, you can manually close your garage door.
