I have a Garage Door by C.H.I Overhead Doors. I recently bought a garage door opener and wanted to install it. While I was looking at the Garage door itself, it has a sticker on it that basically says, "Do not attach a garage door opener without a reinforcement bar". Then it says to refer to the instruction manual, which I do not have since I didn't install the garage door. I can’t seem to find a manual on C.H.I's website.
I assume the reinforcement bar is what I would attach to the garage door, and then I attach the garage door opener to that? Is there any standard type of reinforcement bar that I should get? I have a steel door, so I assume the reinforcement bar is that I don't rip the garage door opener arm from the garage door.
Also I was looking at my garage door and I see red screws, what is the significance of the red screws vs the other screws?
Get some perforated angle. Cut two pcs and form a "T" and screw/bolt it to the center of the top panel of the door. Home depot/Lowes have it.
It wouldn't hurt to find out where the angle should be fastened. If it's an insulated door there should be a reinforced piece designed for that purpose. Keep searching for someone that has a manual or......take your chances. Just my 2¢
