NOTE: It is essential that you also change the code settings in case someone may have copied your code.

Instead of switches, some garage door openers had a series of numbered holes with a small strand of metal or wire running across the hole called “punch outs.”To change the code you simply break one or two additional punch outs in the garage door opener. Some garage door openers have no code switches or punch outs. If you are unable to locate the settings or cannot change them, refer to your Opener’s Owner’s Manual or contact the manufacturer of your opener.
