Power-outage Garage Doors
garage doors are now electricity-powered instead of manually. This makes the garage door very dependent on power to perform its main function. In the event of a power-outage, you have to open the garage door to let your vehicle in or out. So, here are a few simple steps you can follow to answer this troubling problem.
First priority is locating the emergency release cord. This should be found hanging from the center rail of the door. After identifying the cord, pull the cord so as to disconnect the garage door from its opener. In the event that you’re using a foot-operated door stop, just position the door to any angle of your liking. Then, using a little bit of elbow grease, lift the garage door until fully open and be sure that the door will remain in that position until returned to its former position. After using the door, close it down until it reaches the floor. And locked it depending on the type you are using.
Follow these steps and even blackouts can’t stop you from using your garage door.
