PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Thank you for purchasing a GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL. When correctly installed and properly used, your
GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Operators 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/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Automatic Gate Operators.
The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Operators are designed for installation on pull-to-open and push-to-open leaf
gates. The gates must not exceed 20 feet in length (per leaf) nor weigh more than 1000 pounds (per leaf) (please see
Technical Specifications on page 10). The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Operators 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® 4000XL/4200XL Operators accommodate extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push
buttons, automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the Accessory
Catalog) are available.
The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Operators feature adjustable obstruction sensing. This safety feature makes
the gates stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds if they come in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory
setting; meaning the gates will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before they stop and reverse direction.
The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Operators also have an adjustable auto-close feature. After the gates reaches
the fully open position, they can be set to remain open up to 120 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the
transmitter button at any time after the gates open fully will cause them to close immediately. OFF is the factory
setting; meaning the gates will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again.
Please call GTO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for more information about our GTO/PRO®
professional line of gate operators and accessories. Our Sales Department will be glad to give you the name and phone
number of a GTO/PRO® dealer near you.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO INSTALL YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR:
Read these instructions carefully and completely to become
familiar with all parts and installation steps.
You must read the installation manual for detailed instructions on
gate operator safety and proper use of the gate operator.
iii
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential hazards associated with
improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate operator systems. Keep in mind that the gate operator 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 operator, 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 operator or its components, serious injury, or death.
Because GTO automatic gate operators 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 control box power switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.

the operator from the gate (see Accessory Catalog). 1
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 operator installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
1. Verify this operator 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 operator 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
operator for manual gate operation (see page 1).
4.
This gate operator 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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 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 operator 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 operator regularly. Grease hinges, spray push pull tube with high quality silicone spray and
replace the battery every 3-5 years.
8. To operate this equipment safely, YOU must know how to disconnect the operator for manual gate operation
(see page 1). If you have read the instructions and still do not understand how to disconnect the operator, contact the
GTO Service Department.
Disconnect the operator ONLY when the power is TURNED OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
9. 10.
Make arrangements with local fire and law enforcement for emergency access.
11. Distribute and discuss copies of the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS section of this manual with all
persons authorized to use your gate.
12.
IMPORTANT: Save these safety instructions. Make sure everyone who is
using or will be around the gate and gate operator are aware of the dangers
associated with automated gates. In the event you sell the property with
the gate operator or sell the gate operator, provide a copy of these safety
instructions to the new owner.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against
Entrapment
As specified by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate operators 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. The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL utilizes Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment
sensing system as the primary type of entrapment protection. Also, the GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL has provisions for the
connection of Type B2 protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
1. For gate operators 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 operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
C. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator 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® 4000XL/4200XL Automatic Gate Operators are designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds
when the gate comes in contact with an obstruction. Additionally, these operators 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 operator 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.

Entrapment Protection
GTO’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

Installation Overview
Pull-to-Open Gates (Gates Open into the Property)
The diagram shown below is an example of a pull-to-open installation on a chain link fence and single gate. Mounting the
operators on a masonry columns require special procedures; see Column Installation Information on page 38 if you intend
to mount the operator on a column. Furthermore, if you have a push-to-open gates, you will need to purchase two pushto-open brackets (see Accessory Catalog) to properly configure your system. See Push to Open Installation on page 33
before proceeding.

Preparation of the Gate
Step 1
The gates must be plumb, level, and swing freely on
hinges. Wheels must not be attached to the gates. The
gates must move throughout the arc without binding or
dragging on the ground. Note that gates over 250 lb.
should have ball bearing hinges with grease fittings.
Horizontal Cross Member
Step 2
The fence posts must be secured in the ground with
concrete to minimize twist or flex when the operators
are activated. We recommend you position the operators
near the centerline of the gates to keep them from
twisting and flexing and to avoid backsplash from
rainwater. The addition of horizontal or vertical cross
members (if one is not already in place) to provide
a stable area for mounting the gate brackets also
important.
Vertical Cross Member
12
Installing Mounting Hardware
Installing the Post Bracket Assembly
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 wider
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.
On masonry columns use red heads or other secure masonary
mounting hardware.
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 operator is moving the gate.
Step 1:
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.
13
Step 2:
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 3:
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/ " washers, and lock nuts (provided)­.
2
Step 4:
Place the end of post pivot bracket with two holes inside
the post bracket. Align the back hole in the post pivot
bracket with back hole in the post bracket.­Insert 1/2"
x 33/4" hex head bolt through post pivot bracket and
post bracket and secure with washer, large bushing,
lockwasher and nut.

Step 7:
Open the gate to the desired open position. Position the operator so
that the gate bracket rests against the gate along the level scribed
line. Check the clearance between the operator and the gate.
The operator should only make contact with the gate at the gate
bracket. See illustration at right for examples of clearance.
Pinch Area
When you have achieved the best position for the post pivot
bracket in the open position, insert the bolt through the aligned
holes of the post bracket and post pivot bracket to hold it in place.
Gate in the
OPENED POSITION
Clamp the gate bracket to the gate using c-clamps or another type
of clamp.
2" minimum
IMPORTANT: While determining the position of
the post pivot bracket, be sure that the position allows
for minimum 2 inches of clearance between the gate
and the operator in both the open and closed positions,
as shown in Steps 7 & 8 . This clearance will give the
operator the most efficient leverage point for opening
and closing the gate and more importantly provides the
least possible pinch area.
15
Step 8:
Gate in the
CLOSED POSITION
2" minimum
Remove the clevis pin from
the front mount and while
supporting the gate operator,
swing the gate and gate
operator to the closed position.
With the gate and gate
operator in the closed position
check the clearance and be
sure that the gate operator is
not binding at the post pivot
bracket.
Pinch Area
If you don't have 2 inches of clearance or the gate operator is binding on the post pivot bracket, remove the bolt in
the post bracket and readjust the pivot bracket until you can achieve the proper clearance.
With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement, replace the bolt in a
post bracket adjustment hole and return the operator to the open position and recheck the gate operator level and
clearance. Make sure the gate bracket is clamped securely.
Installing the Gate Bracket
Step 9:
Move the operator away from the gate bracket. The mounting holes should be centered over the scribe line. Mark the gate in
the center of the gate bracket holes. Remove the gate bracket and drill the 1/2" holes in the gate cross member and attach the
gate bracket using the 1/2" x 23/4" bolts, washers and nuts.

DUAL GATE INSTALLATION
You will need to install the GTO/PRO 4200XL SLAVE operator
arm on the slave gate following the same steps you did to
install the GTO/PRO 4000XL MASTER operator arm. Begining
on page 13, Step 1 through page 17, Step 10. When the slave
gate operator is installed go to the page 18 and continue.
17
Installation of the Closed Position Stop
The GTO/PRO® 4000XL/4200XL Gate Operators firmly hold the gates in the closed position using
positive stops. The positive stops help stabilize the gate leaves in the closed position. To further
enhance stability and security, we strongly recommended using an optional GTO/PRO® Automatic
Gate Lock (see Accessory Catalog) with your dual gates.
IMPORTANT: You need
to determine which side of the
driveway you will mount the
control box. From this point on
the gate and gate operator on the
same side as the control box will
be referred to as the MASTER
gate and gate operator. The gate
and gate operator on the opposite
side of the driveway from the
control box will be referred to
as the SLAVE gate and gate
operator.

Panel Installation Instructions for further
information.
IMPORTANT:
•
If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an ac power source, you will need to use at least 15 watts
of Solar Panels to charge the battery (see Accessory Catalog). Refer to the Solar Panels and Gate
Activity chart below.
•
All low voltage wire used with the GTO PRO® Gate Opener must be 16 gauge dual conductor,
multi-stranded, direct burial wire (see page 23 and the Accessory Catalog). Do not run more than
1000 feet of wire.
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.
•
Installation of the Transformer
Step 1
Make sure the power switch is OFF before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2
N/OFF
O
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.
22
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.
12 V Batteries
Step 3
Lay the measured length of low voltage wire in a trench following
a path from the selected electrical outlet to the control box. Wires
coming up from the ground should be run through PVC conduit to
protect them from lawn mower blades, weed eaters, and grazing
animals. Be sure to bury the wire laid in the trench.

NOTE: For heavier gates you may need to increase the stall force (see pg 28). If the gate still does not open or close to the
limits you have set, check to ensure that the gate installation was performed correctly according to the guidelines set forth on
page 11. If the transmitter does not activate the gate operator you may have to reset the transmitter code (see pg 27).
TURN CONTROL BOX ON
Your GTO PRO® has two Limit Settings
1) OPEN Limit setting: (Gate in the OPEN POSITION / FACTORY SET NOT ADJUSTABLE) The open limit setting is
the fully open position. The tube must be fully retracted.
2) CLOSED Limit setting: (Gate in the CLOSED POSITION) To achieve optimum closed position, you are required
to complete the following SEVEN STEPS:
Step 1
Confirm that the power switch is in the ON position, and the gates are in the OPEN POSITIONS.
Step 2
Activate your openers by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gates should now be moving from the fully open
positions toward their closing position. Prepare to STOP gate that reaches the desired closed position first by pressing the
entry transmitter button again. This step may be repeated until desired close position is achieved. Once the desired CLOSED
position has been achieved, proceed to step 3.
Step 3
Note which gate has reached the desired closed position (typically it's the slave gate), program the closed limit setting by
pressing and holding the corresponding 'LEARN MAST LIMIT' or 'LEARN SLV LIMIT' for 5 seconds.
Step 4

If you make a mistake and set the limit at the wrong position – press your transmitter to return the gates to their fully opened
positions, then press and hold the 'LEARN MAST LIMIT' or 'LEARN SLV LIMIT' button for 5 seconds. This will clear the
memory for the closed limit positions. Follow Steps 1-7 again.
Setting Your Personal Transmitter Code
All GTO transmitters are set to a standard code at the factory and are ready to operate your GTO PRO® Gate Opener®. For
your safety and security, however, we strongly recommend that you replace the factory setting with your own personal code.
Follow the directions below:
1. Remove the Transmitter Cover
On the back of the transmitter use a small phillips head screw driver to remove
the two screws on the sides of the visor clip and separate the front cover from the
transmitter. With the front cover removed, the battery and the DIP switches will
be exposed. To set a new code, use a small screwdriver to move the switches.

ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST WHEN ADJUSTING OR
SERVICING YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPENER!
NOTE: YOU MAY NEED TO INCREASE THE STALL FORCE IN COLD TEMPERATURES DUE TO
INCREASED RESISTANCE FROM GATE HINGES.
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.
• DO NOT mount receiver on a metal fence or post; doing so will decrease signal range.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography, and
external interference.
• DO NOT mount upside down.
• 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.

Push to Open Installation
Determining The Mounting Position
of The Post Bracket Assembly
Post Bracket Assembly
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out from the property.
If you have a pull-to-open gate (gate opens into the property), return to
page 13.
In a PUSH-TO-OPEN installation the operators are installed while the
gates are in the closed position.
NOTE: An optional 12" long Post Pivot Bracket (R4KPTO) is available
for installations that need a greater distance to achieve the safe gate and
gate operator clearance (2 inches).
Step 1
With the gates closed, adjust the post bracket assembly and the gate
bracket until the operator is level. While holding the operator level,
use C-clamps to temporarily keep the post bracket assembly and
gate bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.

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 operator in both the open and closed
positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the
operator 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.

Pinch Area
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).

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 OPERATOR 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 operator in a push-to-open configuration. The minimum clearance is easier
to achieve and clearance is no longer a problem, since the operator 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 operator
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 operator and power cable. This job is
NOT for the inexperienced!
