How to Manually Open your Garage Door

Weather like snow storms or even extreme heat can cause power outages. Even though we may not want to go outside in bad weather, it is important that you know how to get your garage open when there is no power going to your electric garage opener.

Here are the general steps to take to disconnect your garage door from the door opener and then open the door manually.

  1. Disconnect the garage door opener when the garage door is in the closed position, not when it’s open.
  1. Pull the emergency cord to disconnect the door from the garage door opener. The cord usually has a red handle and will hang down from the center rail of the garage door mechanism.
  1. Lift the garage door straight up until the door is fully open. Make sure the door will remain fully open before leaving it unattended.
  1. If the springs are properly balanced, the door will open easily with the lift handles and stay in place. If it is difficult to open, have a professional garage door service technician check the door as soon as possible to avoid further damage or safety risks.
  1. Close the door manually until it reaches the floor.
  1. Lock the door. When the automatic opener is disconnected the door is not securely shut until you manually slide the lock bar.
  1. Reconnect the opener when the power comes back on. Make sure the door is unlocked when the opener is reconnected. Electrically opening the garage door with the lock bar in place can cause major damage.

This video provides a walk through of the manual open and close process.

Remember, you can get an automatic garage door opener with a battery backup feature. That way, when the power goes out, the garage door will still function using the opener, as will the entry keypad and the safety sensors, and the garage door will be locked and secured.
