How To Open Your Garage Door If You Experience A Power Outage

During the winter months, power outages can be on the rise. Many power outages are due to weather-related causes. Lightning is one of the most common reasons for a power outage. Ice can put increased weight on limbs and can cause them to fall onto your power lines, which causes a power outage. In addition, high winds have the ability to cause objects, such as fallen trees to come in contact with power lines and leave you with no power for a period of time.

Power outages never seem to come at convenient times, do they? Particularly during the winter when we’re all trying to stay warm and avoid the weather conditions, they have an extreme effect on you.

If you experience a power outage and you need to get out of your garage, you are not out of luck. There is a way to manually operate your garage door until your power is restored.

  1. Almost all garage doors have a bypass for opening and closing. Locate the rope with a handle attached to it (it is typically red in color). Pull the handle and it will disengage the trolley from the attachment point to the rail. This puts your garage door into manual mode. Only activate the handle when it is closed or it might come crashing down.
  2. If you want to stay in manual mode until power is restored, pull the rope down towards the back of your garage so it doesn’t get caught on the tracks.
  3. After power is restored you’ll need to reengage the trolley attachment by pulling down on the cord toward the garage opening to prevent the lever from engaging.

I’m so glad that I contacted Bill @ Habpro when the spring in my garage door broke. I called mid-morning and he had a technician at my home that afternoon. The technician was kind and extremely professional. He had the garage door fixed very quickly and for a great price! I would ABSOLUTELY recommended Habpro to all of my friends and family! What a great experience with great people!

Kaylee F.

Wonderful quick service. They helped me find the part to replace and came out within a few days. Greg was able to have the problem fixed within in hour time and also gave me some insight as to why the problem happened in the first place. Price was very reasonable as well. Will def be using this company again and refer them to my friends and family.

Daniel B.

Fantastic service and premium quality product. Bill gave me competitive prices on two insulated metal doors and programmable openers, scheduled the installation at a convenient time for me, and Chuck who did the installation show up right on time. After he thoroughly cleaned up, he stayed and helped sync both vehicles to the openers. I highly recommend Habpro. You won't be disappointed.
