Ask a Question
  • HI can I buy the light-duty flex steel that comes with a garage door opener

    Yes most home centers sell the steel straps provided with our openers.

  • Is there any tools for cutting the bracket, if there is, can you tell me what the product is called?

    We recommend using a hack saw to cut the angle iron in the Garage Door Opener Hanging Kit.
