INSTALLATION STEP 6
Install the Door Control
Locate door control within sight of the door at a
minimum height of 5 feet where small children
cannot reach, and away from moving parts of the
door and door hardware. If installing into drywall
(Fig. 1), drill 5/32" holes and use anchors provided.
For pre-wired installations (as in new home
construction), it may be mounted to a single gang
box (Fig. 2).
NOTE: After installation, a green
indicator light behind the cover will indicate proper
connection. If not lit, the Lock and Light features will
not function (reverse wires to correct).
1.Strip 1/4" of insulation from one end of bell wire
and connect to the two screw terminals on back of
door control by color: white wire to 2 and white/red
wire to 1 (Fig. 3).
2.Remove white cover by gently pushing both
thumbs against upper corners of cover on back
side of door control (Fig. 4). Fasten with
6ABx1-1/4"self-tapping screws (standard
installation) or 6-32x1" machine screws (into gang
box) as follows:
• Drill and install bottom screw, allowing 1//8" to
protrude above wall surface.
• Position bottom of door control on screw head
and slide down to secure. Adjust screw for snug
• Install top screw with care to avoid
cracking plastic housing. Do not overtighten.
• Insert bottom tabs and snap on cover. (To
remove cover after mounting, gently pry at top

and manual release/safety reverse test label in a
prominent location on inside of garage door.
NOTE: DO NOT connect the power and operate the
opener at this time. The trolley will travel to the full
open position but will not return to the close position
until the sensor beam is connected and properly
aligned. See Safety Reversing Sensor Instructions
