Door Section Identification
DEFINITION OF KEY WORDS USED IN THIS MANUAL:
WARNING
When installing your door, you must use sections of the appropriate height in the right stacking location. Determine, what sections you need to use in what order depends on the design
of your door.
Sections are stamped for identification, #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5. The stamp, located on each
side of the sections identifies the stacking sequence. The sequence is always determined by
#1 being the bottom section to #3, #4 or #5 being the highest top section. If the stamp on
the section is illegible, refer to the section side view illustration. The section side view illustration shows the section profile of all sections, and can also be used to identify each section.
The BOTTOM SECTION can be identified by #1.
The INTERMEDIATE I SECTION can be identified by #2.
The INTERMEDIATE II SECTION can be identified by #3, for a 4 section high door only.
The INTERMEDIATE III SECTION can be identified by #4, for a 5 section high door only.
The TOP SECTION can be identified by a #, being the highest section.

Removing an Existing Door
IMPORTANT: COUNTERBALANCE SPRING TENSION MUST ALWAYS BE RELEASED BEFORE
ANY ATTEMPT IS MADE TO START REMOVING AN EXISTING DOOR.
WARNING
A POWERFUL SPRING RELEASING ITS ENERGY SUDDENLY CAN CAUSE
SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY. TO AVOID INJURY, HAVE A TRAINED DOOR
SYSTEMS TECHNICIAN, USING PROPER TOOLS AND INSTRUCTIONS,
RELEASE THE SPRING TENSION.
For detailed information see supplemental instructions “Removing an Existing Door/ Preparing the Opening”. These instructions are not supplied with the door, but are available at no
charge from Wayne Dalton, A Division Of Overhead Door Corporation, P.O. Box 67, Mt. Hope,
OH., 44660, or at www.Wayne-Dalton.com.
Preparing the Opening
WEATHERSTRIPS (MAY NOT BE INCLUDED):
Depending on the size of your door, you may have to cut or trim the weatherstrips (if necessary) to properly fit into the header and jambs.
NOTE: If nailing product at 40°F or below, pre-drilling is required.
NOTE: Do not permanently attach weatherstrips to the header and jambs at this time.
For the header, align the weatherstrip 1/8” to 1/4” inside the header edge, and temporarily
secure it to the header with equally spaced nails. Starting at either side of the jamb, fit the
weatherstrip up tight against the temporarily attached weatherstrip in the header and 1/8”
to 1/4” inside the jamb edge. Temporarily secure the weatherstrip with equally spaced nails.
Repeat for other side. This will keep the bottom section from falling out of the opening during
installation. Equally space nails approximately 12” to 18” apart.

NOTE: Some doors will receive half center hinge(s). These will be installed in between the
center hinge(s) and graduated end hinge(s).
STRUT IDENTIFICATION:
Identify your struts to determine which ones are long strut(s) or short strut(s).
Short Strut(s) are typically installed along the top rail of the top section and or along the bottom rail of the bottom section.
Long Strut(s) are typically installed along the top and or bottom rails of sections. Measure the
height of the long strut(s) to determine if you have 2” or 3”.
NOTE: Some struts also may or may not have holes in them. If they don’t, then prior to
installing the strut and hinge to the section surface, you may have to drill a 3/16” hole for the
appropriate fastener on one or both sides of the strut legs.

With the bottom section facing down from the previous step, uncoil the counterbalance lift
cables. Starting on the left hand side, either place the cable loop on the milford pin of the
bottom corner bracket or place the cable loop into position between the two holes on the side
of the left hand bottom bracket. Slide a clevis pin through the innermost hole, cable loop,
and outermost hole, of the bottom bracket. Slide a washer onto the clevis pin and secure in
place by inserting a cotter pin into the hole of the clevis pin. Bend the ends of the cotter pin
outwards to secure it in place.
Repeat same process for other bottom corner bracket.
Next, starting on the left hand side, align the left hand bottom corner bracket horizontally with
the bottom edge of the bottom section and also align the bottom corner bracket vertically
with the left bottom edge of the bottom section. Using the bottom corner bracket as a template, mark and pre-drill 9/32” diameter holes through the bottom section. Attach the bottom
corner bracket to the bottom section using 1/4” - 20 x 2-1/2” carriage bolts and 1/4” - 20
flange hex nuts, as shown. Repeat the same process for other side. Mark and drill a pilot hole
1” deep into the bottom section with a 1/8” drill bit. Secure the bottom corner brackets to
the bottom section using (1) 1/4” - 14 x 1” tamper resistant lag screw, as shown. Repeat the
same process for the right hand side.
IMPORTANT: BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL NOT TO DRILL THRU THE SECTION. ONLY DRILL 1”
DEEP.
NOTE: All doors are provided with the tamper resistant fastener for the bottom corner
brackets. However, the professional installer is most likely to have the proper tool to install
this fastener. If the homeowner does not have the proper tool to install the tamper resistant
fastener, use a regular 1/4” - 20 x 2-1/2” carriage bolt and a 1/4” - 20 flange hex nut in its
place.
If applicable, insert a short stem track roller and roller spacer into each of the bottom corner
brackets, as shown.
INSTALLATION
Before installing your door, be certain that you have read and followed all of the instructions covered in the pre-installation section of this manual. Failure to do so may result in an
improperly installed door.
NOTE: Reference TDS 160 for general garage door terminology at www.dasma.com.
IMPORTANT: WOOD DOORS MUST BE COMPLETELY FINISHED (3 TOTAL COATS, INCLUDING
PRIMER COAT) PRIOR TO INSTALLATION, TO ENSURE THAT THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR
SURFACES, AS WELL AS ALL EDGES OF THE DOORS ARE PROPERLY PROTECTED AGAINST
MOISTURE OR OTHER CONTAMINANTS. WOOD DOORS, IN A NON-FINISHED CONDITION,
MUST BE TRANSPORTED AND STORED SO THE WOOD SURFACES ARE NOT EXPOSED
TO MOISTURE OR OTHER CONTAMINANTS. IMPROPER TRANSPORTATION, STORAGE OR
DELAYS IN FINISHING, THAT ALLOWS EXPOSURE OF THE WOOD DOOR SURFACES TO MOISTURE OR OTHER CONTAMINANTS WILL RESULT IN THE WARRANTY BEING VOIDED.

Place the bottom section face down on a couple of sawhorses or flat clean/ smooth surface.
Align the bottom weather seal with the flap pointing towards the outside surface of the
bottom section. Starting at one end of the door, measure inward 1” and attach the bottom
weather seal to the bottom of the bottom section with 3/4” long galvanized roofing nails
(not supplied). Now stretch the bottom weather seal slightly and nail the rest of the bottom
weather seal to the bottom of the bottom section every 6”. Once the bottom weather seal is
fastened cut off any extra material so that the bottom weather seal is even with both ends of
the bottom section.
NOTE: Verify bottom weather seal is aligned with bottom section. If there is more than 1/2”
excess weather seal on either side, trim weather seal even with bottom section.
Tools Required: Power drill, 1/8” Drill bit, Socket driver 7/16”, Wrench 7/16”,

thoroughly.
ACRYLIC CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Clean acrylic glazing with nonabrasive soap or detergent and plenty of water. Use your bare
hands to feel and dislodge any caked on particles. A soft, grit-free cloth, sponge or chamois
may be used to wipe the surface. Do not use hard or rough cloths that will scratch the acrylic
glazing. Dry glazing with a clean damp chamois.
NOTE: Do not use any window cleaning fluids, scouring compounds, gritty cloths or solventbased cleaners of any kind.
Final Adjustments
Tools Required: Tape measure, Level, Step ladder, Safety glasses, Leather gloves
Now lift the door and check its balance. If the door is hard to pull down or lifts by itself, adjust
extension spring length by moving the “S” hook backward (towards the rear back hangs) to a
different hole in the horizontal angle.
If the door is difficult to lift or too easy to pull down, adjust extension spring length by moving
the “S” hook forward (towards the header) to a different hole in the horizontal angle.
IMPORTANT: WHENEVER ADJUSTING EXTENSION SPRING LENGTH FOR DOOR BALANCE,
ALWAYS OPEN THE DOOR TO THE FULLY OPEN POSITION AND RETURN THE LOCKING PLIERS TO THE HORIZONTAL TRACKS BELOW THE BOTTOM TRACK ROLLERS.
If the door still does not operate easily, lower the door into the closed position and recheck
the following items:
1.) Check the door for level.
2.) Check the distance between flag angles - must be door width plus 3-3/8” + 1/4” - 0”.
3.) Check the counterbalance lift cables for equal tension - adjust by re-tieing the special
knot.

Preparations
Clean all surfaces of dust, dirt and any other contaminants. Any scarring or stains that occur
during transportation, handling or storage must be re-sanded to the original condition.
Painting Your Garage Door
A high quality exterior 100% Acrylic Latex based finish paint is recommended for painting
your wood door. FOR BEST RESULTS DO NOT USE A DARK COLOR PAINT. HIGH HEAT
ABSORPTION CAN CAUSE EXCESSIVE BOWING AND CRACKING OF THE WOOD. If priming
is necessary, prime the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges, using a primer
compatible with the selected finish paint and for the specific species of wood substrate being
finished.
NOTE: Some species of wood, such as cedar, require special primers and finishes to prevent
tannin stains from appearing. Consult with your paint supplier.
If the door is factory primed by Wayne Dalton, the priming step is not required, except if
touch-up is needed due to surface preparation and re-sanding.
NOTE: Wayne Dalton uses a latex primer.
Finish paint the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges with at least 2 coats of a
high quality exterior 100% Acrylic Latex finish paint over the primer. Follow paint manufacture’s label directions explicitly for all coatings.
IMPORTANT: THE FOLLOWING TOP COATS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED. SHAKE AND SHINGLE
PAINTS, CLEAR COATINGS, OIL OR ALKYD PAINTS, VINYL ACETATE (PVA), VINYL ACRYLIC OR
VINYL ACETATE ACRYLIC CO-POLYMER PAINTS.

warning label
If staining, select an exterior grade stain, approved for use on the species of wood substrates
being finished and compatible with Alkyd varnishes. FOR BEST RESULTS DO NOT USE A
DARK STAIN. HIGH HEAT ABSORPTION CAN CAUSE EXCESSIVE BOWING AND CRACKING OF
THE WOOD. Apply the stain to the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges, following stain manufacturer’s label directions. After proper drying time for the stain, or if wood is
being left natural, apply 1 coat of waterproof exterior Alkyd varnish (marine type varnish) to
the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges. After recommended drying time of
1st coat, sand all surfaces with fine grit (320) sandpaper. Clean all surfaces of sanding dust
and apply a 2nd coat of the Alkyd varnish to the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all
edges. After 2nd coat is dry, sand all surfaces again with fine grit (320) sandpaper. Clean all
surfaces of sanding dust and apply a final 3rd coat of the Alkyd varnish to all surfaces.
Three finish coats of waterproof exterior Alkyd varnish are required to properly finish a
stained or natural wood door. Follow the finish manufacturer’s label directions explicitly for
each coat applied.
NOTE: Do not stain MDO plywood, apply paint only.
Only a waterproof exterior Alkyd varnish top coat finish is approved for stained or natural
wood doors. Other types of top coat finishes, including deck sealers, are not acceptable and
if used, will void the warranty.
Place label at a readable height on door. DO NOT
remove, cover or paint over this label. Product
user should inspect this label periodically for
legibility and should order a replacement label
from the door manufacturer as needed.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE A PRESSURE WASHER ON YOUR GARAGE DOOR!
An annual inspection of all the surfaces of your garage door(s) will reveal the extent of weathering and the possible need for refinishing. When the finish becomes eroded or thin, clean
and prime any areas showing deterioration. Then completely refinish the door, according to
the directions, listed below, or the manufacturer’s label directions. Proper finishing of the
wood substrates to protect your door(s) from the effects of moisture and sunlight is vital in
extending the service life and beautifying your garage door(s).

HAVE ANY SUCH WORK PERFORMED BY A TRAINED DOOR SYSTEMS
TECHNICIAN USING PROPER TOOLS AND INSTRUCTIONS.
TorqueMaster® Plus Springs: Pawl knob(s) (located on the TorqueMaster® end brackets above
the door) should be engaged to prevent the door from rapidly descending in case of spring
failure or forceful manual operation.
Torsion Springs: The torsion springs (located above the door) should only be adjusted by a
trained door systems technician. DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust torsion springs yourself.
Extension Springs: A restraining cable or other device should be installed on the extension
spring (located above the horizontal tracks) to help contain the spring if it breaks.

drawbar operator, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand when doing this test. Start with the door in the fully closed position. Lift the door to check its balance.
Adjust TorqueMaster® or Extension spring(s), if door lifts by itself (hard to pull down) or if
door is difficult to lift (easy to pull down). DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust Torsion Springs
yourself. To adjust TorqueMaster® or Extension spring(s), refer to your installation instructions
and owner’s manual. If in question about any of the procedures, do not perform the work.
Instead, have it adjusted by a trained door systems technician.
