Garage Door Emergency Releases
GARAGE DOOR EMERGENCY RELEASE CORDS ARE LIFESAVERS
USING A GARAGE DOOR EMERGENCY RELEASE CORD
Garage doors have emergency release cords hanging from the garage door opener. These cords have a handle at it’s base that hangs down a few feet underneath the garage’s ceiling. In some super high up garage (and depending on YOUR height,) you may need to stand on a stool in order to pull the handle of the garage door emergency release cord.
When pulled, the garage door emergency release cord detaches the garage’s carriage from it’s trolley, allowing the garage door to easily slide open without any automated power. You will need to manually lift up the garage door, but it will open up super quickly with no resistance due to the spring assistance. Simply pull the cord and the garage door will become super easy to manually open and close!! Don’t forget, even when emergency garage door cords are installed, it’s still essential to have your garage door and garage door opener periodically inspected by garage door safety experts, like those here at Los Angeles Garage Door & Gates.
