@ Brent – We do not make extension kits for 10 -foot high doors. If you have a 10-foot high door, you could consider one of our Wall Mounted model garage door openers https://store.geniecompany.com/collections/wall-mount-garage-door-opener-models, or check with a professional Genie dealer about the options for the 10-foot rail models. https://www.geniecompany.com/dealer-locator

Do you make an extension for a 10ft door. I had bought the Aladdin connect model. Model is the 7155-tkv smart


I have a 9’ door and bought the standard Genie Garage Door which fits a 7’ door . So I need an extension kit to accommodate a 9 ’ door .

The 15’ belt has failed on my PMX500ic/b. The shop door is 10’ tall…is a replacement belt available?
