of Garage Door
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:
• Header bracket MUST be RIGIDLY fastened to structural
support on header wall or ceiling, otherwise garage door
might not reverse when required. DO NOT install header
bracket over drywall.
• Concrete anchors MUST be used if mounting header bracket
or 2x4 into masonry.
• NEVER try to loosen, move or adjust garage door, springs,
cables, pulleys, brackets, or their hardware, ALL of which are
under EXTREME tension.
• ALWAYS call a trained door systems technician if garage
door binds, sticks, or is out of balance. An unbalanced
garage door might not reverse when required.
Installation procedures vary according to garage door
types. Follow the instructions which apply to your door.
1. Close the door and mark the inside vertical centerline of
the garage door.
2. Extend the line onto the header wall above the door.
You can fasten the header bracket within 4 feet
(1.22 m) of the left or right of the door center only if
a torsion spring or center bearing plate is in the
way; or you can attach it to the ceiling (see page 9)
when clearance is minimal. (It may be mounted on
the wall upside down if necessary, to gain
approximately 1/2" (1 cm).)
If you need to install the header bracket on a 2x4
(on wall or ceiling), use lag screws (not provided)
to securely fasten the 2x4 to structural supports as
shown here and on page 9.
3. Open your door to the highest point of travel as shown.
Draw an intersecting horizontal line on the header wall
above the high point:
• 3" (7.5 cm) above the high point for sectional door
and one-piece door with track.
• 8" (20 cm) above the high point for one-piece door
without track.
This height will provide travel clearance for the top edge
of the door.

INSTALLATION STEP 4
Install The Protector System®
Be sure power is not connected to the garage door opener
BEFORE installing the safety reversing sensor.
To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from a closing garage
door:
• Correctly connect and align the safety reversing sensor. This
required safety device MUST NOT be disabled.
• Install the safety reversing sensor so beam is NO HIGHER
than 6" (15 cm) above garage floor.
The safety reversing sensor must be connected and
aligned correctly before the garage door opener will
move in the down direction.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SAFETY
REVERSING SENSOR
When properly connected and aligned, the sensor will
detect an obstacle in the path of its electronic beam. The
sending eye (with an amber indicator light) transmits an
invisible light beam to the receiving eye (with a green
indicator light). If an obstruction breaks the light beam
while the door is closing, the door will stop and reverse to
full open position, and the opener lights will flash 10 times.
The units must be installed inside the garage so that the
sending and receiving eyes face each other across the
door, no more than 6" (15 cm) above the floor. Either can
be installed on the left or right of the door as long as the
sun never shines directly into the receiving eye lens.
The mounting brackets are designed to clip onto the track
of sectional garage doors without additional hardware.
Safety Reversing Sensor
6" (15 cm) max. above floor
If it is necessary to mount the units on the wall, the
brackets must be securely fastened to a solid surface such
as the wall framing. Extension brackets (see accessories)
are available if needed. If installing in masonry
construction, add a piece of wood at each location to
avoid drilling extra holes in masonry if repositioning is
necessary.
The invisible light beam path must be unobstructed. No
part of the garage door (or door tracks, springs, hinges,
rollers or other hardware) may interrupt the beam while
the door is closing.

INSTALLING THE BRACKETS
Be sure power to the opener is disconnected. Install
and align the brackets so the sensors will face each other
across the garage door, with the beam no higher than
6" (15 cm) above the floor. They may be installed in one
of three ways, as follows:

Garage door track installation (preferred):
• Slip the curved arms over the rounded edge of each
door track, with the curved arms facing the door. Snap
into place against the side of the track. It should lie
flush, with the lip hugging the back edge of the track, as
shown in Figure 1.
If your door track will not support the bracket securely,
wall installation is recommended.

Wall installation (Figures 2 & 3):
• Place the bracket against the wall with curved arms
facing the door. Be sure there is enough clearance for
the sensor beam to be unobstructed.
• If additional depth is needed, an extension bracket
(see Accessories) or wood blocks can be used.
• Use bracket mounting holes as a template to locate
and drill (2) 3/16" diameter pilot holes on the wall at
each side of the door, no higher than 6" (15 cm) above
the floor.
• Attach brackets to wall with lag screws (not provided).
• If using extension brackets or wood blocks, adjust right
and left assemblies to the same distance out from the
mounting surface. Make sure all door hardware
obstructions are cleared.

Recommended Wire Routing
1. Using insulated staples, run the wires from both sensors
to the rail at the door header (Figure 5A).
2. Run the wires through wire clips at the top of the rails.
NOTE: If your access door is near the garage door, you
may choose to install the door control at this time and run
the door control wire along the rail with the sensor wires.
3. Separate the white and white/black wires. Strip 7/16"
(11 mm) of insulation from the end of the sensor wires.
Twist like colored wires together. Connect the bell wire
from safety reversing sensors to the quick-connect
terminals: white wires to the white terminal and
white/black wires to grey terminal (Figure 5B).

opener, fasten it SECURELY to structural supports of the
garage. Concrete anchors MUST be used if installing ANY
brackets into masonry.
Three representative installations are shown. Yours may
be different. Hanging brackets should be angled
(Figure 1) to provide rigid support. On finished ceilings
(Figure 2 and Figure 3), attach a sturdy metal bracket to
structural supports before installing the opener. This
bracket and fastening hardware are not provided.
1. Measure the distance from each side of the motor unit
to the structural support.
2. Cut both pieces of the hanging bracket to required
lengths.
3. Drill 3/16" pilot holes in the structural supports.
4. Attach one end of each bracket to a support with
5/16"-18x1-7/8" lag screws.
5. Fasten the opener to the hanging brackets with
5/16"-18x7/8" hex bolts, lock washers and nuts.
6. Check to make sure the rail is centered over the door
(or in line with the header bracket if the bracket is not
centered above the door).
7. Remove the 2x4. Operate the door manually. If the door
hits the rail, raise the header bracket.
NOTE: DO NOT connect power to opener at this time.

To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from a falling
garage door:
• If possible, use emergency release handle to disengage
trolley ONLY when garage door is CLOSED. Weak or broken
springs or unbalanced door could result in an open door
falling rapidly and/or unexpectedly.
• NEVER use emergency release handle unless garage doorway
is clear of persons and obstructions.
• NEVER use handle to pull door open or closed. If rope knot
becomes untied, you could fall.
• Thread one end of the rope through the hole in the top
of the red handle so “NOTICE” reads right side up as
shown. Secure with an overhand knot at least
1" (2.5 cm) from the end of the rope to prevent slipping.
• Thread the other end of the rope through the hole in the
release arm of the outer trolley.
• Adjust rope length so the handle is 6 feet (1.83 m)
above the floor. Secure with an overhand knot.
NOTE: If it is necessary to cut the rope, heat seal the cut
end with a match or lighter to prevent unraveling.

INSTALLATION STEP 11
Electrical Requirements
To avoid installation difficulties, do not run the opener
at this time.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, your garage door
opener has a grounding type plug with a third grounding pin.
This plug will only fit into a grounding type outlet. If the plug
doesn’t fit into the outlet you have, contact a qualified
electrician to install the proper outlet.
RIGHT
To prevent possible SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from
electrocution or fire:
• Be sure power is not connected to the opener, and
disconnect power to circuit BEFORE removing cover to
establish permanent wiring connection.
• Garage door installation and wiring MUST be in compliance
with ALL local electrical and building codes.
• NEVER use an extension cord, 2-wire adapter, or change
plug in ANY way to make it fit outlet. Be sure the opener is
grounded.
PERMANENT WIRING
CONNECTION
WRONG
If permanent wiring is required by your local code,
refer to the following procedure.
To make a permanent connection through the 7/8" hole in
the top of the motor unit (according to local code):
• Remove the motor unit cover screws and set the cover
aside.
• Remove the attached green ground terminal.
• Cut black and white wires and strip away 1/2" (1 cm) of
insulation, 3" (7.5 cm) before spade terminals.
• Remove the power cord from opener.
• Install a conduit or flex cable adapter to the 7/8" hole.
• Run wires through conduit, cut to proper length and strip
insulation.
• Attach with wire nuts provided. Attach the ground wire to
the green ground screw. The opener must be grounded.
• Properly secure wire under plastic ties so that wire does
not come in contact with moving parts.
• Reinstall the cover.
To avoid installation difficulties, do not run the opener
at this time.

TROUBLESHOOTING THE SAFETY REVERSING
SENSORS
1. If the sending eye indicator light does not glow steadily
after installation, check for:
• Electric power to the opener.
• A short in the white or white/black wires. These can
occur at staples, or at opener connections.
• Incorrect wiring between sensors and opener.
• A broken wire.
2. If the sending eye indicator light glows steadily but the
receiving eye indicator light doesn’t:
• Check alignment.
• Check for an open wire to the receiving eye.
3. If the receiving eye indicator light is dim, realign either
sensor.
NOTE: When the invisible beam path is obstructed or
misaligned while the door is closing, the door will reverse.
If the door is already open, it will not close. The opener
lights will blink 10 times (if bulbs are not installed, 10 clicks
can be heard). See page 11.
INSTALLATION STEP 12
Complete Safety Reversing Sensor
Installation
ALIGNING THE SAFETY REVERSING SENSORS
Plug in the opener. The indicator lights in both the sending
and receiving eyes will glow steadily if wiring connections
and alignment are correct.
The sending eye amber indicator light will glow regardless
of alignment or obstruction. If the green indicator light in
the receiving eye is off, dim, or flickering (and the invisible
light beam path is not obstructed), alignment is required.
• Loosen the sending eye wing nut and readjust, aiming
directly at the receiving eye. Lock in place.
• Loosen the receiving eye wing nut and adjust the sensor
vertically and/or horizontally until it receives the sender’s
beam. When the green indicator light glows steadily,
tighten the wing nut.

INSTALLATION STEP 13
Fasten the Door Bracket
Fiberglass, aluminum or lightweight steel garage doors WILL
REQUIRE reinforcement BEFORE installation of door bracket.
Contact your door manufacturer for reinforcement kit.
Follow instructions which apply to your door type
as illustrated below and on the following page.
A horizontal reinforcement brace should be long
enough to be secured to two or three vertical
supports. A vertical reinforcement brace should cover
the height of the top panel.
Figure 1 shows one piece of angle iron as the horizontal
brace. For the vertical brace, 2 pieces of angle iron are
used to create a U-shaped support. The best solution is to
check with your garage door manufacturer for an opener
installation door reinforcement kit.
NOTE: Many door reinforcement kits provide for direct
attachment of the clevis pin and door arm. In this case you
will not need the door bracket; proceed to Step 14.
