PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Thank you for purchasing a GTO/PRO-SW2500 When correctly installed and properly used, your GTO/PROSW2500 Operator will give you many years of reliable service. Please read the following information to ensure you
have the correct system for your particular needs. This manual will enable you to properly install your GTO/PROSW2500 Automatic Gate Operator.
The GTO/PRO-SW2500 Operator is designed for installation on a pull-to-open single leaf gate (gates that open
into the property). By purchasing an accessory bracket, the GTO/PRO-SW2500 Operator can accommodate a pushto-open single leaf gate (gates that open out from the property). The gate must not exceed 16 feet in length (per leaf)
nor weigh more than 500 pounds (per leaf) (please see Technical Specifications on page 10). The GTO/PRO-SW2500
Operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron gates. Use on solid (wood) gates
is not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind. If the wind is strong enough, the operator
will obstruct and stop.
The GTO/PRO-SW2500 Operator accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons,
automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed GTO/PRO®
Accessory Catalog) are available.
The GTO/PRO-SW2500 Operator features adjustable obstruction sensing. This safety feature makes the gate
stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory setting;
meaning the gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.
The GTO/PRO-SW2500 Operator also has an adjustable auto-close feature. After the gate reaches the fully open
position, it can be set to remain open up to 120 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button
at any time after the gate opens fully will cause it to close immediately. OFF is the factory setting; meaning the gate
will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again.
Please call GTO/PRO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for more information about our GTO/PRO®

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate openers produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential hazards associated with
improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate opener systems. Keep in mind that the gate opener is just
one component of the total gate operating system. Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with
convenience, security, and safety.
This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the consumer. Because there are many possible
applications of the gate opener, the safety precautions and warnings contained in this manual cannot be completely exhaustive
in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the safe design, installation, and use of this product. CAREFULLY
READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS TO
ENSURE THE SAFE SYSTEM DESIGN, INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.
Precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this
warning symbol. The symbol identifies conditions
that can result in damage to the opener or its components, serious injury, or death.
Because GTO/PRO automatic gate openers are only part of the total gate operating system, it is the responsibility of
the consumer to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended use.
To Manually Open and Close the
Gate, Follow the Procedure Below:
CAUTION: The gate will move freely and uncontrolled when the gate operator is
removed from the gate. ONLY disconnect the operator when the operator power
switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
Front or Rear Mount
Disconnecting the operator
1. Turn operator power switch OFF.
2. Remove hairpin clip, clevis pin, and bushing
from the front mounting point.
3. Remove the operator from the mount.
The gate can be opened and closed manually
when the operator is disconnected.
Clevis Pin
Gate Bracket
IMPORTANT: NEVER allow operator arm to hang by
the front mount - it will break from the arm weight.
Bushing
CAUTION: Because the GTO/PRO gate operator is
battery powered, disconnect the operator ONLY when the
power switch on the operator is turned OFF. Unplugging
the transformer does not turn power to the operator OFF.
NOTE: Substitute a Pin Lock for the clevis pin on the front
mount of the gate opener to prevent unauthorized removal of the
opener from the gate (see Accessory Catalog). Hairpin Clip
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For The Consumer
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to meet the requirements set forth in the instruction
manual could cause severe injury and/or death, for which the manufacturer cannot be held responsible.
2.
When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed
far enough from the road to prevent traffic congestion.
3.
The gate must be installed in a location that provides adequate clearance between it and adjacent structures when
opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates must not open into public access areas.
4.
The gate and gate opener installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
1. Verify this opener is proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use and the proper class rating.
2.
Make sure the gate has been properly installed and swings freely in both directions. Repair or replace all worn or
damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate and will enhance
the performance of the opener and safety devices used with the system.
3.
Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to disconnect the
opener for manual gate operation (see page 1).
4.
This gate opener is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for pedestrian
use (see page 6).
5.
Always keep people and objects away from the gate and its area of travel. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE
PATH OF A MOVING GATE.
6.
Pay close attention to the diagram below and be aware of these areas at all times.

Entrapment Zones for a proper Pull-To-Open installation:
Zone 1 – leading edge of the gate and the fence post.
Zone 2 – between the gate and the gate post.
Zone 3 – the path of the gate.
Zone 4 – the space between the gate in the open position and any object such as a wall, fence, tree, etc.
Zone 5 – pinch points between the opener and gate.
II. During Installation
1.
Install the gate opener on the inside of the property and fence line. DO NOT install an opener on the outside of the
gate where the public has access to it.
2.
Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fingers or hands could be pinched.
3.
Devices such as contact sensors (safety edges) and non contact sensors (photo beams) provide additional protection
against entrapment.
4.
If push buttons or key switches are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located at least 10 feet from
any moving part of the gate (see diagram below). Never install any control device where a user will be tempted to
reach through the gate to activate the gate opener.
5.
Do not activate your gate opener unless you can see it and can determine that its area of travel is clear of people,
pets, or other obstructions. Watch the gate through its entire movement.
6.
Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate opener controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.

III. After Installation
1.
Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert the public of auto­matic gate operation. It is
your responsibility to post warning signs on both sides of your gate. If any of these signs or warning decals become
damaged, illegible or missing, replace them immediately. Contact GTO/PRO for free replacements.
2.
The gate is automatic and could move at any time, posing a serious risk of entrapment. No one should be in contact
with the gate when it is moving or stationary.
3.
Do not attempt to drive into the gate area while the gate is moving; wait until the gate comes to a complete stop.
4.
Do not attempt to "beat the gate" while the gate is closing. This is extremely dangerous.
5. Do not allow children or pets near your gate. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the
remote controls away from children and unauthorized users; store controls where children and unauthorized users do
not have access to them.
6.
KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Always turn power to opener OFF before performing any
maintenance. Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and apply silicone spray to it at least once per month.
7.
Service the gate and gate opener regularly. Grease hinges, spray push/pull tube with high quality silicone spray and
replace the battery every 3-5 years.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against
Entrapment
As specified by Gate Opener Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate openers shall have an inherent entrapment
sensing system, and shall have provisions for, or be supplied with, at least one independent secondary means to protect
against entrapment. GTO/PRO gate operators utilize Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment sensing system as the
primary type of entrapment protection. Also, the GTO/PRO gate operator has provisions for the connection of Type B2
protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
1. For gate openers utilizing a contact sensor (e.g., safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (51.8.4 [i]):
A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and outside of a vehicular swing gate system.
B. A hard wired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the sensor and the gate opener is not subjected to mechanical damage.
C. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate opener for entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall function under the intended end-use conditions.

ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 30A.1.1A)
The GTO/PRO Gate Opener is designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds when the gate comes in contact with
an obstruction. Additionally, these openers are equipped with an audio entrapment alarm which will activate if the
unit obstructs twice while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for a period of 5 minutes, or until the opener
receives an intended signal from a hardwired entry/exit source (e.g. push button control or keypad) and the gate
returns to a fully open or fully closed position. Turning the power switch on the control box OFF and back ON will
also deactivate the alarm. Wireless controls such as transmitters and wireless keypads will not deactivate the alarm.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Required Safety Precautions for Gates
Install Warning Signs
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO/PRO gate operator.
Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed if pedestrian traffic is expected near the vehicular gate. We recommend
using the GTO/PRO Bulldog Pedestrian Gate Lock (Call the GTO/PRO Sales Department) for controlled access.

Entrapment Protection
GTO/PRO’s inherent obstruction settings, even when properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury
in some circumstances. For this reason, safety devices such as safety edge sensors (or photoelectric sensors), which stop and
reverse gate direction upon sensing an obstruction, are suggested for enhanced protection against entrapment.
Warning Signs
! WARNING
The warning signs (at right) must
be installed on both sides of the
gate (see page 7 for details).
Moving Gate Can Cause

Step 2
The fence post must be secured in the ground with
concrete so it will minimize twist or flex when the
opener is activated. We recommend you position the
opener near the centerline of the gate to keep the gate
from twisting and flexing. The addition of a horizontal
or vertical cross member (if one is not already in place)
to provide a stable area for mounting the gate bracket is
also important.
Vertical Cross Member
11
Installation of Mounting Hardware
The position of the post bracket determines the leverage and efficiency of the opener. The post bracket position also sets the
clearance between the opener and gate in the open and closed positions (minimum 2 inches for safety reasons).
The curved design of the post bracket works well for installations on round and square fence posts. Because the post bracket
carries the entire thrust of the active opener, bolts that completely penetrate the fence post must be used.
On wooden posts, place a metal plate or washer
(not supplied) between the nuts and the fence
post to prevent the thrust of the opener from
pulling the bolts and washers out of the wood.

NOTE: A fence post smaller than 6" in diameter
or 6" square should be made of metal instead
of wood so that it will remain stable while the

IMPORTANT:
We strongly recommend using steel pipe, wood or metal to reinforce thin walled tube gates or wood to reinforce panel gates

NOTE: The following steps are
intended for pull-to-open gate
installations. If you are mounting
your opener on a push-to-open gate
(e.g., a gate on a sloped driveway)
you will need to purchase a Push

IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly, be sure that the position allows
for a minimum of 2 inches of clearance between the gate and the opener in both the open and closed positions, as shown in
the diagrams below. This clearance will give the opener the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and
more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.
Step 6
When you have achieved the required position for the post pivot bracket in the open position, insert the 5/16" x 1-3/4" bolt
through the aligned holes of the post bracket and post pivot bracket to hold it in place. Remove the clevis pin from the front
mount and while supporting the gate opener, swing the gate and gate opener to the closed position. With the gate and gate
opener in the closed position, check the clearance and be sure that the gate opener is not binding at the post pivot bracket.
If you don't have 2 inches of clearance or the gate opener is binding on the post pivot bracket, remove the 5/16" x 1-3/4" bolt
and readjust the pivot bracket until you can achieve these important clearances.
With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement, reattach the opener to the gate
bracket in the open position and recheck the gate opener level and make sure the brackets are clamped securely.

Installing the Post Bracket Assembly and Gate Bracket
Step 7
Mark reference points for bolt holes on the fence post through
middle of bracket slots. Marking reference points in this manner
allows room for adjustment when mounting the post bracket

Powering the System
Installation of the Transformer
IMPORTANT:
•
The transformer is designed and intended for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged only into
an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover or housing (available at local electrical supply stores)
must be used.
•
All low voltage wire used with the GTO/PRO® Gate Opener must be 16 gauge dual conductor,
multi-stranded, direct burial wire (see page 20 and the Accessory Catalog). Do not run more than
1000 feet of wire.
If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an ac power source, you will need to use at least one 5 watt
Solar Panel to charge the battery (see Accessory Catalog). Refer to the Solar Panels and Gate
Activity chart below.
•
Optional Solar Panels and Gate Activity
The table and map
illustrate the maximum
number of gate cycles
to expect per day in a
particular area when
using from 5 to 30 watts
of solar charging power.
(see Accessory Catalog).
The figures shown are
for winter (minimum
sunlight) and do not account for the use of any
accessory items. Accessories connected to
your system will draw additional power from
the battery.

Step 1
Make sure the power switch is OFF before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2
ON/OFF Switch
Select the electrical outlet into which you will plug the transformer.
Measure the distance from this outlet to the control box following the
path where the wire will be laid. After you have measured how much
wire is needed, cut the wire to the appropriate length.
19
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LOW VOLTAGE WIRE
The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge multi-stranded, low voltage, PVC
sheathed wire. This particular gauge enables the transformer to provide an adequate charge through the
control board to the battery at distances up to 1000 ft.
DO NOT use telephone wire or solid core wire. Unlike multi-stranded wire, these types of wire are
inadequate for use with your gate opener system. Telephone wire and solid core wire do not deliver
enough voltage for your gate opener to function and will cause the system to go into a condition known
as "low voltage lockout."
NEVER splice wires together. Splicing permits corrosion and seriously degrades the wire's ability to
carry an adequate current.

Installing the Receiver
Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting it.
Consider the following when mounting the receiver:
• Standard receiver cable length is 10 feet (receivers with a longer cable are available as
special order items; call the GTO Sales Department). NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the cable through PVC conduit to protect it from damage.
• DO NOT run cable through metal conduit because the receiver signal range will be
decreased.
• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing ac wiring.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography,
and external interference.
• DO NOT mount upside down.
• DO NOT mount on metal fence.
• MOUNT so that you have line of sight between remote and antenna.
• MOUNT 3 feet away from AC voltage.
• MOUNT as high as possible for optimum range.

Connecting Additional Safety Devices
Although GTO strongly recommends the use of additional safety devices, we do not endorse any
specific brand names. Only use products that are certified and listed to be in compliance with any
applicable UL standards (Underwriters Laboratories) and national and regional safety codes.
Call GTO Sales at 1-800-543-4283 for information on compatible
products for your specific application.
The GTO/PRO® SW-2500 will ONLY accept accessory devices with normally open dry contact output.
Contact Sensors (safety edges)
If not installing a contact sensor skip to next section.
PLEASE NOTE: Contact sensors are not included with the GTO/PRO® SW-2500.
The GTO/PRO® SW-2500 is equipped with built-in obstruction sensitivity. The opener is designed to stop and reverse the
gate within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. However, obstruction sensitivity, although functioning
properly, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury in some circumstances. To augment your protection against
entrapment, GTO recommends using some form of additional safety device. When installed, contact sensors must be
mounted in compliance with UL 325, Underwriters Laboratories safety standard for gate openers. Review page 5 for information about mounting requirements for safety edges ("contact sensors").
Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions for
information about installing these devices on a vehicular
gate.

Push to Open Installation
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out from the property.
A Push-to-Open Bracket is required for this type of installation (see
Accessory Catalog). If you have a pull-to-open gate (gate opens into the
property), return to page 13; step 3.
In a PUSH-TO-OPEN installation, the openers are installed while the gates
are in the closed position.
Step 1
Post Bracket Assembly
Determining The Mounting Position
of The Post Bracket Assembly
With the gates closed, adjust the post bracket assembly and the gate
bracket until the opener is level. While holding the opener level, use
C-clamps to temporarily keep the post bracket assembly and gate
bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.
3/8" x 2" Bolt
Post Bracket
Push-To-Open Bracket
(optional accessory)

3/8" Nut
IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post
pivot bracket assembly, be sure that the position allows for maximum
clearance between the gate and the opener in both the open and closed
positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the
opener the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate
and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.
Step 2
After verifying that you have the best position
for the post pivot bracket, insert the 5/16" x 1 3/4"
bolt through the aligned holes of the post bracket
and post pivot bracket and fasten it with the 5/16"
washer and nut.
Gate in the Open Position
Pinch Area (gray)
IMPORTANT: If you loosened the clamp on
the post bracket to achieve the optimum position,
tighten it in its new position and recheck the gate
bracket with the gate in the open position (move the
gate bracket and re-clamp it if necessary).

Gate in the Closed Position
Pinch Area (gray)

Step 3
With the gate in the fully closed position and the opener retracted, swing the opener to the gate. Mark reference points for
bolt holes on gate cross member through middle of gate bracket slots. The opener must be level. (Some vertical adjustment
is possible by sliding the post bracket assembly up and down.) Drill 3/8" holes into the gate cross member as marked. Fasten
gate bracket to cross member using (2) 3/8" x 3" bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts. Attach the opener to the post bracket
assembly and gate bracket using clevis pins, bushings, and hairpins clips.

Column Installation Information
IF THIS OPENER WILL BE USED WITH GATES THAT ARE MOUNTED ON
MASONRY, BRICK, OR ROCK (etc.) COLUMNS:
READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
A.
The simplest solution is to install the opener in a push-to-open configuration (requires Push-To-Open Bracket,
see Accessory Catalog). The minimum clearance is easier to achieve and clearance is no longer a problem,
since the opener will be pushing the gate away from the column instead of pulling it toward the column. It
is recommended that you place a steel plate between the opener mounting brackets and masonry surface for
additional strength.
B.
If a push-to-open installation is impossible due to traffic hazards, terrain, etc., another option is to re-hang the
gate. You may hang it on a post, either in the center of the column or at the back corner, or move the gate to the
back corner of the columns.
C.
The most difficult solution is to cut a notch in the column to accommodate the opener and power cable. This
job is NOT for the inexperienced!
