How to Manually Open Your Garage Door
If the power is out or your garage door opener isn’t working, you can manually open your garage. But, if your garage door is off its tracks, springs are broken, or it’s somehow jammed, please call us or another technician—we don’t want you to get hurt! Garage doors weigh hundreds of pounds and could potentially crush you, especially your fingers. So, first and foremost, be safe!
While waiting for garage door repair Los Angeles, CA, you may still be able to open your garage door manually by following these steps:
- Make sure your garage door is completely closed and then disconnect the garage door opener.
- See that red handle hanging down from center rail above you? Give it a strong tug down. This will release the mechanism.
- Lifting with your legs, lift the garage door straight up until it is fully open. Make sure it stays in place before stepping away, otherwise it can come sliding right back down.
- If it is difficult to open or won’t stay open, call for garage door repair Los Angeles, CA.
- When you close the door, be careful not to get under it or to catch your fingers in between the door panels. From inside, manually slide the lock bar on the side rail to keep your garage secure. When you reconnect the garage door opener, don’t forget to unlock the slide bar!
