Garage Door Question


I guess my question is what length are you needing and what is the bar length, as long as it is long enough you should be ok with the switch adjustment.

Garage Door Question


I Can Make The Chain Long As I Want.will Be Using Chain And Sprocket Only.nothing Else Will Be Needed,with The Exception Of The Motor Mounting Brackets.if I Were To Bypass The Switches The Motor Should Continually Run In One Direction Until The Power Is Interrupted.then When It's Powered Again It Should Run In The Other Direction.i Don't Have A Motor To Experiment With But I'm Pretty Sure That's What Would Happen.
