Safety Instructions for the GTO/PRO 2000
and GTO/PRO 2200 Gate Operators
SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S BUSINESS
Automatic gate operators provide convenience and security to their users. However, because these machines can produce
high levels of force, it is important that all gate operator system designers, installers and end users be aware of the potential
hazards associated with improperly designed, installed or maintained systems. Keep in mind that the gate operator is only
one component of the total gate operating system–each component must work in unison to provide the end user with
convenience, security and safety.
The following information contains various safety precautions and warnings for the system designer, installer and end user.
Although the warnings are not completely exhaustive in nature (due to the many and varied possible applications), they do
provide an overview of the importance of safe design, installation and use. Take the time to carefully read and follow these
precautions and other information provided to help assure a safe system design, installation and use.
NOTE: GTO Automatic Gate Operators are intended to be part of a total gate operating system. It is the responsibility of
the purchaser, designer and installer to insure that the total system is safe for its intended use. The manufacturer is not
responsible for accidents arising from unsafe installations or improper use. Safety is your responsibility!
SPECIAL NOTES FOR THE SYSTEM DESIGNER
1. Familiarize yourself with the complete safety instructions, precautions and warnings. The end user is relying on your
design to provide a safe, hazard-free installation and system use.
2. When designing a system which will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed
far enough away from the road to eliminate traffic backup. Distance from the road, size of the gate, usage levels and
gate cycle/speed must be taken into consideration to eliminate potential traffic hazard.
3. This gate is not for pedestrian use. If pedestrian traffic is expected, install a walk-through gate for this purpose.
2
SPECIAL NOTES FOR THE INSTALLER
I. Before Installation
1. Check to ensure that this gate operator is proper for the type and size of gate and its frequency of use (see page 6).
2.
Make sure that the gate has been properly installed and swings freely while opening and closing. Repair or service
any worn or damaged gate hardware prior to installation of operator. A freely moving gate will require less force to
operate and enhance the performance of the operator as well as the safety devices used with the system. Use ball
bearing hinges for all gates exceeding 250 lbs (113.4 kg).
3. Review the operation of the system and become familiar with the manual disconnect for the operator (see Illustration
‘A’ below) and the safety features of the system.
4. Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate operator controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.
II. During Installation
1. Be aware of all moving parts and avoid close proximity to any pinch points.
2. Place access controls (i.e. keypads, push buttons, etc.) far enough from the gate so that the user has full view of the
gate but cannot touch the gate while operating the controls. The recommended minimum distance between the gate
and any access control device is ten ft.
3. Install the gate operator on the inside of the property and/or fence line. Do not install an operator on the public side/
outside of the gate.
4. Place the caution signs provided with the gate operator on each side of the gate or in high visibility areas to alert the
public of automatic gate operation. It is your responsibility to make sure the public is not exposed to a potentially
hazardous situation.
III. After Installation
1. You are responsible for explaining the basic operations and safety systems of the entire gate operator system, including operation of the manual disconnect, to the end-user.
2. Review all the safety instructions with the end-user and leave this manual with them.
Illustration A
Manual Disconnect of Operator Arm
Front Mount
1. Turn control box "OFF".
2. Remove hairpin clip and clevis pin from the gate bracket and pull
operator arm away from the gate.
3. The gate can now be opened manually.
3
SPECIAL NOTES FOR THE CUSTOMER / END USER
Read and follow all safety precautions. Be certain you have thoroughly reviewed these safety precautions with your
installer:
1.
Distribute safety instructions to all persons authorized to use the gate operator.
2.
KEEP CLEAR OF THE GATE AND AREA OF GATE TRAVEL at all times. This automatic gate operator is not
for pedestrian use. If pedestrian traffic is expected near the gate, a walk-through gate should be installed for this
purpose.
3.
Do not allow children or pets near the gate.
4.
Do not activate the gate operator unless you can see it and can determine its area of travel is clear of children, pets
or any other obstructions.
5.
If push buttons, keypads or keyswitches are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located far enough
from the gate (at least ten ft.) so the gate cannot be touched while in operation. Do not activate any control without
watching movement of the gate.
6.
Do not use the sensitivity adjustments to compensate for a poorly installed or damaged gate. The gate should always
be maintained to operate manually as easily as possible; periodic gate/operator inspections and maintenance should
be scheduled. (See Maintenance and Troubleshooting, pages 33 and 34)
7.
Have all safety systems checked periodically. If these functions are observed to operate improperly, discontinue use
and have operator serviced immediately.
8.
To operate this equipment safely, YOU must receive detailed instructions on the operation of the manual disconnect. If you feel you haven’t received full and proper instructions, contact your installer.
9.
It is your responsibility to make sure that the installer posted GTO's caution signs on both sides of your gate. If any
of these signs or caution decals become damaged, illegible or missing, replace them immediately. Contact your
installer or GTO for replacement.
10.
Read this manual and keep it for reference.

OTHER MATERIALS YOU MAY NEED BEFORE YOU START THE INSTALLATION:
Depending on the type of gate and fence post, you may need some additional materials/hardware.
Some of these items can be found in the GTO/PRO Accessory Catalog on page 37.
• All gates will need a stop post in the open position. This post is not provided. See page 14,
“Installation of Open and Closed Position Stops” for more information.
• Low voltage wire may be needed. Length depends upon the distance between the transformer
power supply and the control box. See page 17, “Powering the System” and the Accessory Catalog,
page 37, for wire and solar charging panels.
• If the gate is more than 1000' away from an A.C. Power Source you will need to use one or more
GTO Solar Panels to provide the trickle charge to the battery. See the Accessory Catalog, page 37.
• The diameter of the fence post should be at least 8" (round) or 6" (square) in order to mount the
post bracket (see page 10). An optional 4” bracket can be used with 4” post, and mounting bracket
adapters must be used with 4" and 6" round posts. (See Accessory Catalog, page 37).
• Depending upon the diameter of the fence post, you may need longer carriage bolts than those
provided. Bolts should be at least 1" greater than the diameter of the fence post (see page 10).
• If using thin wall tube or panel gates, see page 12 for recommended reinforcement materials.
• A horizontal or vertical cross member or mounting plate may be needed to mount the operator to
the gate. See page 9.

Preparing the Gate
Step 1:
The gate must be in proper working order, plumb, level and swinging freely on its hinges. Do not use wheels on gate. The
gate must move smoothly and evenly throughout its swing, without binding or dragging on the ground. Gates over 250
lbs. must have ball bearing hinges with grease fittings.
Step 2:
Horizontal Cross Member
The fence post must be strongly secured in the ground with
concrete so it will not twist or flex when the operator is
powered. It is important to position the operator near the
midline of the gate to keep the gate from twisting and
flexing. The addition of a horizontal or vertical cross
member may be necessary (if one is not already in place)
to provide a stable area to which the gate bracket can be
secured.
Vertical Cross Member
For the operator to perform properly, Steps 1 & 2 must
be complete before you go any further with the installation.
9
Installing The Post Bracket Assembly
The post bracket position determines the leverage of the
operator and the clearance between the operator and the
gate.
8” Wood Post
6” Wood or Metal Post
The post bracket is designed to work on a flat fence post.
Fence posts must be at least 6” square in order to mount
the post bracket.
NOTE: The best method of attaching the post bracket to
metal post is welding. Round wood posts (no smaller than
8” diameter) may be notched to create a flat surface for
attaching the post bracket.
If bolts are used to mount the post bracket, the bolts must
completely penetrate the fence post. If your fence post is
greater than 8", it will be necessary to use carriage bolts
longer than those supplied. On wood posts use a metal
plate (not provided) between the nuts and post to prevent
the operator from pulling the bolts and washers through the
wood.
Standard Post Bracket (included)
4” Metal Post
6” Metal Post
NOTE: If you have round metal gate posts that are 4” or
6” in diameter, optional mounting bracket adapters are
available, see Accessory Catalog on page 37.
The use of optional mounting brackets adapters may
require you to drill a few additional holes in the standard
post bracket depending on your application.
Optional Mounting Bracket Adapters
Step 3:
Close the gate and place your level against
the horizontal cross member. The top of the
level should be in the center of the cross
member and should overlap the fence post.
Scribe a line across the cross member and
fence post. You will use this line to help
determine position of gate and post brackets.
Level
10
Step 4:
Position the post bracket on the fence post with the mounting holes
centered over the scribe line. The post bracket should be flush with the
edge of the fence post closest to the gate (see illustration). Mark the
position of post bracket holes on the fence post.
Step 5:
Drill holes in fence post as marked using a 1/2" drill
bit. Install the post bracket using the 1/2" x 10"
carriage bolts, 1/2" washers, and lock nuts (provided).
Step 6:
Place the rounded ends of post pivot brackets
inside the post bracket. Align the holes in the
post pivot brackets with holes in the post
bracket (see illustration). Insert 1/2" x 33/4" hex
head bolt through post pivot brackets and post
bracket; tighten the nut.

pivot brackets using 1/2" x 23/4" bolt
and 1/2" nut. Note: when tightening
the rear mount bolt, leave it loose
enough for the operator to pivot
freely.

Step 9:
Attach the gate bracket to operator arm
using the clevis pin and hairpin clip.
IMPORTANT: Thin walled tube
and panel gates MUST be reinforced
as shown to prevent damage to gate
and/or operator.

Step 10:
Open the gate to the desired position (at least 10º and no greater
than 110º). Position the operator arm so that the gate bracket
just rests against the gate. Check the clearance between the
operator and the gate. The operator should only make contact
with the gate at the gate bracket. However, there should not be
too much clearance between the operator and the gate, or the
operator will fully extend before it reaches the closed position.
See illustration at right for examples of clearance.
Step 11:
Now align spacer and post pivot brackets hole with the
post bracket hole that provides the best clearance. Insert
the 1/2" x 33/4" bolt through holes in post bracket, post
pivot brackets and spacer. When tightening the 1/2" nut,
leave it loose enough so that you can make adjustments
later.
Spacer
Installing the Gate Bracket
NOTE: Rotating the front mount at the end of the push-pull tube will change its length so
that the mount and gate bracket can be properly aligned with each other on the gate at the
best location (i.e. between or on pickets, on braces, mounting plate, etc.).
Step 12:
With the gate bracket clamped in the open position (no more than
110o from the closed position). Detach the operator arm from the
gate bracket. The mounting holes should be centered over the
scribe line. Drill the 3/8" holes in the gate cross member and attach
the gate bracket using the 3/8" bolts, washers and nuts. Reattach the
operator arm to the gate bracket. You have now established the
OPEN POSITION of the gate.
13
Installing the Open and Closed Position Stops
Open and closed position stops MUST be used; they are boundaries against which the operator firmly holds the gate in both the
open and closed positions. Stability in both the open and closed positions contributes to the long life of the operator and to the
durability of the installation. For additional stability and security, install the GTO Automatic Gate Lock (see Accessory Catalog
on page 37).
Step 13:
With the gate still in the open position, measure approximately 3/4 of the distance to the end of the gate from the
hinges and place a mark on the ground directly under the gate
(refer to the overview illustration below for positioning). You
will install an open-position stop post at this point. The open
position stop post can be made of wood, metal, or concrete.
Closed Position Stop
Open Position Stop
Step 14:
Remove the hairpin clip and clevis pin from the
gate bracket and move the gate so that you can
install the open position stop post. Secure stop
post firmly in the ground (and seat in concrete).

Step 15:
Hinge point
Close the gate. Position the closed position stop plate
on the end of the gate frame at mid-height. Extend the
stop plate to make contact with the fence post at that
position.
Closed Position
Stop Plate
Install the closed position stop plate using appropriate
hardware for the type of gate (u-bolts for tube or chain

Installing the Control Box
Step 16:
Mount the control box using either the tywraps
provided, or other secure mounting system. The
control box should be mounted at least 3 feet
from any source of AC power to avoid unwanted
electrical interference and at least 2-3 feet above
the ground to protect from rain splash, snow, etc.
15
Step 17:
Turn the control box OFF. Remove the front cover of the control box. Slide
the battery into position with the terminals to the left. NEVER insert battery
with the terminals to the right. Be sure the battery fits snugly in the control
box. Connect the battery lead wires to the battery, red wire to (+) terminal,
black wire to (-) terminal. Pay careful attention to the color of the wire (not
the connectors). If the wires are connected incorrectly, it will damage the
control board.
HINT: a dab of household petroleum jelly on each
terminal will help prevent corrosion.
Step 18:

Powering the System
•
The GTO transformer is intended for indoor use. If the transformer can only be plugged into an outside
electrical outlet, a weatherproof housing or cover (available at electrical supply stores) must be used.
•
Solar power options are available; see Solar Chart on next page.
•
All low voltage wire used for powering the GTO/PRO gate operators MUST be dual conductor, multistranded, direct burial wire.
Step 21:
Choose the electrical outlet into which the transformer will be plugged. Measure the distance from the electrical outlet to
the control box, following the path where the low voltage wire will run (to prevent overpowering the charging circuit
it is important to use at least 10 ft. of wire; the maximum distance can be no more than 1000 ft.).

Length of Wire from Transformer to Control Board
CAUTION: Wire MUST be at least 10 ft. long.
Predicting the exact maximum number of operational cycles at peak load is more of an art form than an exact science. The
above chart illustrates the average maximum number of cycles possible (the “MNC”) in a 24 hour period with a single gate
that weighs 1000 lbs. and is installed such that the motor draws 5 amps to move the gate (typical installation on ball bearing
hinges). Please keep the following variables in mind:
1) If the gate is binding, dragging, in high winds, or if ball bearing hinges are not used, it will require more than 5 amps to
move it; this will reduce the MNC. Gates weighing less than 1000 lbs. may have a higher MNC.
2) The above illustration is based on the transformer being plugged into an outlet that provides a line voltage of 120 volts; if
the outlet provides less than 120 volts (for example, some rural areas may only provide 108 volts), it can significantly
reduce the MNC (as much as 50%).
3) A fully charged battery has an inherent reserve of 50-100 cycles without requiring a charge. This allows peak loads
at several points during the day, depending upon how much time the transformer has to provide a charge to the battery
between cycles. The transformer is capable of fully recharging the battery in as little as five minutes at optimum conditions.
4) The above chart is based upon an ambient temperature of 40º F. Battery performance and speed at which it will recharge
will fluctuate based upon temperature.
5) The MNC for the GTO/PRO 2000 is roughly comparable to most AC powered operators, and the transformer provided
with this operator should handle most high traffic situations. If the battery does not seem to be able to provide the constant
charge required for your application, the addition of a deep cycle marine battery should provide ample power to handle
any situation. For more information, call GTO’s service department.
6) The MNC with dual gate applications will be about half of those with a single gate.

Important Information About Low Voltage Wire
The only wire recommended for use with GTO products is GTO’s 16 gauge, multi-stranded, low voltage, PVC
sheathed wire. This particular gauge will enable the transformer to provide an adequate charge to the control board
from as far away as 1000 ft.
Do not use telephone wire or and solid core wire. This wire does not work as well as the multi-stranded and can
cause the operator system to go into low voltage lockout.
Never splice wires together. Splicing will seriously reduce the wire’s ability to carry an adequate current and it
provides a weak point for corrosion.
Step 22:
Install at least 10 ft. of low voltage wire (see Accessory Catalog, page
37) to connect the control box to the transformer. This wire should be
buried in a trench. Wires coming from the ground to the control box
should be run through PVC conduit to protect them from lawn mowers,
weed eaters and grazing animals. Do not use telephone wire or any
solid core wire. Never splice wires together!
Step 23:
Feed the low voltage wires upward through the strain relief on the
control box. Pull 6" to 8" of wire into the control box and tighten the
screw on the side of the strain relief to secure wires.
18
Step 24:
Strip 1/4" off the ends of the low voltage wire and twist
each wire end tightly. Attach these ends to the control
board at the terminal strip marked "TRANSFORMER".
Do not let the wire ends touch each other!
Insert the RED wire into the RED TRANSFORMER
terminal block and the BLACK wire to the BLACK
TRANSFORMER terminal block.
Tighten set screws against exposed end of wires. A dab
of household petroleum jelly on each terminal will help
prevent corrosion.
Step 25:
Strip 1/2" off the ends of the low voltage wire and attach ends to the transformer terminals;
red lead to (RED), black lead to (BLK).
A dab of household petroleum jelly on each terminal will help prevent corrosion.
We suggest terminating wire ends by installing crimp-on connectors (not provided) before
attaching to proper terminals.
Be certain wire ends do not touch each other!
Step 26:
Plug in the transformer.
We strongly recommend using a surge protector.
HINT: keeping a few mothballs in the control box will prevent insects from entering the control box and
damaging the PC board.
19
Programming the System
Step 27:
Please read these instructions completely before attempting to program the gate operator.
All GTO/PRO operators are pre-programmed with the same factory settings for the following features:
Type Of Installation: Single gate, pull-to-open;
Obstruction Sensitivity: Most sensitive;
Auto Close: Closes automatically 60 seconds after opening;
Gate Sequence: Single gate opens by itself;
If these settings are correct for your installation, you do not need to do any programming. It will only be necessary to
program those particular features you want to change from the factory settings.
If no programming will be done, proceed to page 23, Step 28.
Programming Buttons
There are 5 programming buttons on the control board,
labeled S1-S5. These programming buttons serve a dual
purpose:
(1) to select one of the 5 features
(2) to select different settings for each
of these 5 features
Features and Settings
Before you begin programming, learn about the five features and each of their settings.
Feature S1 - Type of Installation
The factory setting is for a single operator, pull-to-open (open-in), installation on a single gate.
If you are installing a dual operator, pull-to-open system, you MUST select the Dual Gate Pull-to-Open setting (S3). See
additional instructions on Dual Gate Programming on page 30.
For push-to-open (open-out) installations you MUST select either Single Gate Push-to-Open setting (S2) or Dual Gate Pushto-Open setting (S4). See additional instructions on Push-to-Open on page 31.
Feature S2 - Obstruction Sensitivity
This feature determines the amount of force exerted by the operator (and gate) on an obstruction before the operator stops or
reverses. The less sensitive the setting (S1 and S2), the more force the gate will exert on the obstruction before the operator
stops and reverses. The more sensitive the setting (S4 and S5), the less force the operator will exert against the obstruction
before stopping and reversing.
NOTE: The factory setting is set for the most sensitive (S5) setting, because this is the safest setting. However, the less
sensitive settings (S1 and S2) may be necessary for heavy gates and gates with significant wind resistance. Determine what
force it takes to stop the gate at each of the five settings, then decide which of the settings works best for your installation.
Remember it's always safest to use the MOST sensitive setting possible.
Do not use obstruction sensitivity to compensate for an improperly installed gate!
20
Feature S3 - Auto Close
The Auto-Close feature determines whether or not the gate will close automatically after it is opened, and if so, how long
it will remain open before it begins to close. The factory setting (S5) automatically closes the gate 60 seconds after
opening. Setting S2, S3, and S4 determine other lengths of time the gate will remain open before automatically closing.
Setting S1-Off disables the automatic closing feature and causes the gate to remain open until the transmitter button (or
other entry control device) is pressed, which then closes the gate.
Feature S4 - Gate Sequence
Do not use this setting unless you are installing dual gate operators, see page 27.
This feature enables you to select the sequence of the opening and closing gates in a dual gate installation; the factory
setting (S1) is for both gates to open and close simultaneously.
Feature S5 - Programming Activation
This feature is only used to activate the programming mode.
Programming Steps
1: Place the board in the Programming Mode, as follows;
A. Turn the control box OFF
B. While holding down the S5 button, turn the control box ON,
C. Immediately release the S5 button
2: Choose the first feature you wish to program (S1 to S4), and
push that button and release. Wait for the RED LED light to
stop flashing.
3: Within 4 seconds after the RED LED light stops flashing, push
the appropriate button (S1 to S5) for the desired setting. The
number of blinks of the RED LED light corresponds to the
setting number of that feature. (S1 blinks once, S2 blinks twice,
etc.)
4: To program another feature, wait at least 10 seconds then
repeat steps 2 & 3 above.
5: Store the programmed settings in control board memory by
pressing the button on the transmitter until the RED LED light
on the control board flashes bright and then returns to dim. The
settings are now stored in control board memory.

Programming Check
If You Need To Check the Program Settings:
Put the control board in programming mode (see step 1 in Programming Steps). Press the button representing the
feature you want to check. Count the blinks of the red light. The number of blinks represents the setting of the
feature.
CAUTION: If you are checking more than one feature, be sure to wait at least 10 seconds between single presses
to insure you don't alter the setting of a particular feature.
22
Setting the Personal Transmitter Code
Step 28:
All GTO transmitters are set to the same code at the factory, and are ready to activate the GTO/PRO operator. For safety
and security, however, we strongly recommend that you change the factory setting to the end user’s own personal code,
according to the following directions:
1. Remove the Transmitter Cover
Slide the access cover away from the top of the transmitter. This will expose
the battery and the dip switches. The code can now be changed using a small
screwdriver.
, In
c.
2. Set the Coding Switches
There are nine (9) dip switches, each of which can be placed in three different positions (+,0,–). DO NOT set all switches
in the same position, such as all +, all -, or all zeros.
WARNING: No other adjustments should be made inside the transmitter!
Once you have set the dip switches to the end user’s personal code, replace access cover.
3. Store the Code in Control Board Memory
A. Turn the control box OFF.
B. Remove control box lid.

S2
C. While holding down Programming
Button S5 on the control board, turn the
control box ON and then immediately
release the Programming Button S5.
D. Store the transmitter code in control
board memory by pressing the transmitter
button until the Red LED light on the
control board flashes bright and then
returns to dim. Then release the transmitter button. The transmitter code is stored in
control board memory and the control
board is now in normal operational mode.

Setting the Closed Position Limit Switch
Step 29:
Remove the rear cover of the operator to gain access to the limit
switches and the limit switch cams.
IMPORTANT: The inner switch cam assembly is
factory set. Do not attempt to adjust the inner switch
cam. This switch cam is not adjustable; attempting to
move it will cause damage to the operator.
Step 30:
For Pull-to-Open Installations:
The open position of the gate was determined when you installed
the GTO/PRO 2000 on the open gate (page 13, Step 12). The outer
switch cam is used to adjust the closed position of the gate. The ideal
closed position is when the closed position stop plate makes contact
with the fence post just as the operator motor shuts down. Turn the
cam until the desired setting is accomplished. Test adjustments by
using transmitter.
For Push-to-Open Installations:
The closed position of the gate was determined when you installed the
GTO/PRO 2000 on the closed gate (page 31). The outer switch cam is
used to adjust the open position of the gate. The ideal open position is
when the gate makes contact with the open position stop post just as
the operator motor shuts down. Turn the cam until the desired setting
is accomplished. Test adjustments by using transmitter.
NOTE: Some adjustment to the closed position can be made by
disconnecting the operator from the gate bracket and rotating the
push/pull tube to extend or shorten the operator length.
CAUTION: Because
this operator is a
powerful device, it is
extremely important
to properly set the
limit switch. Keep the
transmitter at hand
during this operation
in case you need to
start or stop the
operator to prevent
harm to people or
your gate.

Step 31:
Secure all bolts, nuts, and washers on the post bracket and gate bracket assemblies. Cut off the ends of the bolts extending beyond the tightened nuts.
Step 32:
Install Caution Signs on both sides of the gate using tywraps (provided) or screws.
Mounting the Receiver
Step 33:
Consider the following points when deciding where to place the receiver:
1) the standard cable length of the receiver is 10’ (longer receiver cables are available
through your dealer as a special order item).
2) run the receiver cable through PVC conduit to prevent mowers, weed eaters or
animals from damaging cables. DO NOT run cable through metal conduit,
because it will decrease the range of the signal.
3) DO NOT mount the receiver on metal post or fence, because it will decrease the
range of the signal.
4) DO NOT overtighten the screws, as this may warp the receiver housing and
damage the weather seal.
5) the range of this device can vary from 50 to 100 feet, depending upon weather,
topography and outside interference.
F.C.C. Regulation
“This device complies with F.C.C. rules Part 15.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1 - This device may not cause harmful interference.
2 - This device must accept an interference that may cause undesired operation.”
Transmitter distance may vary due to circumstances beyond our control.
Note: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by unauthorized
modifications to this equipment. Such modifications could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.

Accessory Hookups
The terminal marked GREEN is the common ground for all accessories. It is used in conjunction with the following terminals
for the use of accessories.
IMPORTANT: Be sure wires are twisted and inserted into terminal connections with no loose strands touching other
wires or terminal connections. Tighten set screws against exposed end of wires. A dab of household petroleum jelly on each
terminal will help prevent corrosion.

Push-to-Open Instructions
Determining The Mounting Position of The Post Bracket Assembly
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out toward the street (away from the property). The operator is installed on this type of gate
while in the closed (not open) position. Because every gate installation varies, the push-to-open installation of the GTO/PRO
2000 and GTO/PRO 2200 will need to be customized. In most cases this only requires drilling two new holes in the post
bracket.
Step P1:
The operator and brackets are installed on the gate post in the same way as pull-to-open installations. The post bracket is
mounted at the inside edge of the post. The post pivot brackets are attached with one bolt at the pivot point and the
operator(s) is attached at the rear mount. See pages 10-12, Step 1-9 for details.
Open Position
Step P2:
Find a position for the post pivot brackets where the operator has clearance in both the
open and closed positions and clamp operator into position (see examples of clearance on
page 13). Mark the point on the post pivot bracket where the 1/2" holes will need to be
drilled. Drill the holes then secure the post pivot bracket using the 1/2" bolt, spacer,
washer and lock nut.
Clearance
Closed Position
New Hole Position
Spacer
31
Step P3:
With the gate in the closed position, connect operator to gate bracket assembly as in Step 12 on page 13
and clamp into position. Mark the point where the gate bracket will be attached to the gate. Drill the holes
and mount the gate bracket. Reattach gate bracket to arm with clevis pin and hair pin clip.
Step P4:
Now go back and follow the instructions for the rest of the installation from page 14 “Installing the Open and Closed Position
Stops”.
NOTE: When programming the gate operator (pages 20-22) be sure to program it for PUSH-TO-OPEN under Type
of Installation.

Maintenance & Troubleshooting Guide
Maintenance:
• On all gates weighing 250 lbs. or more, routinely grease the ball bearing hinges at least 4 times a year; more
frequently if the gates are near a coastal area.
• A few mothballs in the control box helps to keep out insects which can damage circuits.
• Spray the push-pull tube with silicone spray about 4 to 12 times a year.
• Test all the safety accessories once per month! If they are not working, contact the installer or GTO Inc.
Gate sensitivity adjustments regulate the amount of force the operator needs to move the gate. If the hinges are in good
working condition, try using the S2 (“ Somewhat sensitive”) setting. In an area with high winds, it may need to be
set to a less sensitive.
The operator has a 12 volt D.C. motor with mechanical limit switches.
To test the motor, put a volt meter on D.C. and place the meter leads on the wire connections inside the plastic cover above
the switches. The reading should be at least 11.5 volts when the system is active. If it is not, see the following
section “ The control board”.
To test the switches, put the meter on “ohms”. Place the leads on each of the wires on the switch. You should have an open
circuit. Click the switch and you should have .2 ohm’s. Do this for both switches.
To test the cable, put the meter on ohms. At one end of the cable place the lead on the green wire, and on the other end of the
cable place the lead on the green wire and the other wires. This should show a maximum of 1.0 ohms on the green
wire and nothing on the other wires. Test each wire as you have above. If all have the proper readings, then this is
not the problem.
Note: Inspect the cable for any signs of any punctures. Wires inside the PVC jacket can be shorted and the cable will still
show proper ohms.
The control board: This is a micro processor board. The power that runs the gate comes from the battery which is recharged
through the board, by a 14 volt 40 va. (2.9 amp.) transformer.
There are 2 lights on the control board. These are for a quick reference only. All readings must be measured by a
volt meter!
The red light serves two purposes. The first is to aid in the programming (see page 20 “Programming the System”).
The second is to show the condition of the battery. If it is flashing, see the following section on “ Testing the
battery”. The normal state of this light is on but dim.
If the red light is flashing it means that the system has reached low voltage lockout, which means that the unit does
not have enough voltage to operate the system. One of the following problems may exist:
• Incorrect wire or trying to run the wrong gauge wire too far for the number of cycles that you need. See
chart on page 17
• Wires from the transformer or solar panel to the control board are broken or spliced.
• A transformer or solar panel that has no output voltage.
• Incorrect number of solar panels, or solar panels hooked up improperly.
The green light serves as a quick visual indication that the control board is receiving power from the transformer.
33
Rebooting the system: This function is done if all voltage and ohms test good but the operator will not respond to anything.
Reboot the system by holding down buttons labeled S3, S4 and S5 at the same time, while turning the operator off
then back on, and then releasing the three buttons. The unit has then returned to all factory settings. Then the unit
must be reprogrammed to the functions desired.
The transformer: Two things can cause failure. The first is shorting the leads during the installation, or letting the strands
touch at the terminal on the control board. The second is a static charge (generally associated with a lightning storm
or power outage); use of a surge protector will help.
Testing the battery: This is a 12 volt 7 amp hour battery. The proper way to test this is to perform a load test. Place the volt
meter on D.C.; put the red probe on the (+) positive terminal and place the black probe on (–) negative terminal.
Then activate the unit and watch the volt meter. The drop should not be more than 1 volt.
Note: A loose battery terminal will cause the same symptoms that a bad battery will cause. Terminals should be
secure and corrosion free.
Remote control range: This will vary at each installation. (see F.C.C. disclaimer on page 25), the range of this device can
vary from 50 to 100 feet, depending upon weather, topography and outside interference.
Make sure that the receiver is located above metal fences.
Moving the receiver even a few inches can change the range of operation.
Move the receiver as far from the motor as possible to avoid the chance of electrical interference.
Check or change the battery in the transmitter.

AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATORS
Limited Two Year Warranty
GTO/PRO gate operators are warranted by the manufacturer against defects in materials and manufacturer
workmanship for a period of two (2) years from date of purchase, provided recommended installation
procedures have been followed.
In the case of product failure due to defective material or manufacturer workmanship within the two (2) year
warranty period, the operator will be repaired or replaced (at the manufacturer's option) at no charge to the
customer, if returned freight prepaid to GTO, Inc., 3121 Hartsfield Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32303.
IMPORTANT: Call (850)575-0176 or fax (850)575-8912 for a Return Goods Authorization (RGA)

accepted. Replacement or repaired parts are covered by this warranty for the remainder of the two (2) year
warranty period. GTO will pay the shipping charges for return to the owner of items repaired under warranty.
The manufacturer will not be responsible for any charges or damages incurred in the removal of the defective parts for repair, or for the reinstallation of those parts after repair. This warranty shall be considered
void if damage to the product(s) was due to improper installation or use, tampering, connection to an
improper power source, or if damage was caused by lightning, wind, fire, flood, insects or other natural
agent. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which may vary
from state to state. This warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied. NOTE: Verification of the warranty period requires copies of receipts or other proof of purchase. Please retain these

Column Installation Information
12" MAX
The GTO/PRO 2000 and GTO/PRO 2200 can be mounted on
any size column, but the gate hinge cannot be more than 12”
from the mounting surface of the gate bracket. The edge of
the gate bracket must be aligned with the edge of the column
face where the hinges are mounted. If these conditions cannot
be met, and you do not want to pocket the column, call
GTO’s Service Department for alternative solutions..
In column applications, the rear mount of the operator will be
attached directly to the gate bracket without the use of the
post pivot brackets. Use ten 1/2” washers (provided) as
spacers between the rear mount and the gate bracket, 5 on top
and 5 on bottom (see illustration below). Align washers, rear
mount holes and gate bracket holes, then secure with 1/2" x
33/4" bolt and lock nut. When tightening the 1/2" nut, leave
it just loose enough for the arm to swing freely.
