Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • my door is 9 feet. i want to buy the genie opener but genie does not make an extension kit to accommodate a door larger than 8 feet?

    We do not make an extension kit for a 9-foot high door. You would need to contact a Genie professional dealer for a rail to accommodate that. You can locate one near you by entering your zip code at www.geniecompany.com.

  • my 5 piece rails I s about 7 in short was replacing a craftsman with a 112in rail will the extender kit help me

    If your garage door is 8 foot high, then yes the extension kit would help you. If it is taller than 8 foot, the opener will not work.
