Answer: 
It just hangs there. Adjusting the length of the cable might be a good idea if needed. It is already very short. But it should follow the release mechanism as the door opens since it would be installed on the same door. Just leave enough cable free for the maximal distance between ends. Cheerios.

Answer: 
The cable connects to your emergency pull cord. it just hangs in a loop from the back of the lock (inside the door) to the existing emergency cord. very unobtrusive. when needed you "unlock" the lock and the cylinder comes out with the emergency cord which then disconnects from the drive allowing the door to be lifted when no power is available to auto door opener or keypad/ remote not working

Answer: 
The cable hangs down loosely from the release lever to the lock. There isn't a whole lot of slack and the cable is pretty smooth, so I wouldn't worry about it scratching so much as wearing down anything it rubs against.
If you see the cable rub against the top of your car as the garage door closes, I'd recommend loosely attaching the cable with some cable ties to the arm that connects the door, or even Read More
The cable hangs down loosely from the release lever to the lock. There isn't a whole lot of slack and the cable is pretty smooth, so I wouldn't worry about it scratching so much as wearing down anything it rubs against.
If you see the cable rub against the top of your car as the garage door closes, I'd recommend loosely attaching the cable with some cable ties to the arm that connects the door, or even shortening the cable if you feel you need to. (I wouldn't.) Remember to leave enough slack in the cable to allow yourself to remove the lock far enough that you can grip and tug on the lock assembly from outside to pull the cable that releases the lever it attaches to. It doesn't matter if the cable is tucked up and away, but you will want it to move freely when you release the lock and pull the cable. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as expected This lock dropped right into the same hole as my old one which had to be replaced due to a lost key. Only slightly inconvenient thing for me was the screws were too long and had to be trimmed. Better than too short. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Was everthing it said it was! Easy installation!!! June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Is as advertised Instructions are to mount in top panel, but I wanted mine so that my wife could easily reach it. I added a couple feet of cable and it works great. Be forwarned that if you remove the key while the cylinder is out of the casing, that tiny parts may fall from the cylinder on to the ground or snow. This potential problem should have been corrected before marketing this product and is the reason I don't give it a higher rating. December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works, but i modified the attachment setup for better security I highly recommend not to mount it as in manual. Because it would be too easy for a thief to drill the screw heads (battery drills are common) and pop the device out of its hole towards the exterior of the door to open your garage door. Instead i attached it behind the door passing through a piece of steel which holds the lock from behind. The screws holding it are invisible from outside. Use another wood support or glue a short plastic pipe to protect door insulation on the hole of the door if needed. Much harder to break. Do not remove key if opened lock outside assembly.... Springs would jump. Ps: spanish and french translations on the package are rubbish, do not mean anything! Had a big laugh reading it. ( i speak those fluently) September 15, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It does its job I was looking for a replacement for a lock I didn't have a key for. After removing the old lock, I followed the instructions for installation, and it went smoothly and quickly. I tested it by closing the garage door, putting in the key, turning, and removing the lock cylinder. That allowed me to pull the release cable and open the garage door, which will allow me to get to my car during a power outage. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good protection against power outage Easy to install (<5 min) and provides easy access if you have a garage with only automatic door opener. let's you access garage/shed emergency pull cord if no power. May 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase A very necessary purchase for my situation. I live in a rural , all-electric home with frequent power outages. I keep all my doors bolted and I access the house through the garage. When power is out, someone better be inside to let me in. This allows me access. One downside is that the lock is designed for a wooden door. I had to back up the inside of the door with a square of plywood to securely attach lock. Manufacturer might want to detail that this might be the case and give instructions. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect fit for the product The lock kit is an exact duplicate of the existing lock which was damaged. The Home Depot customer representative went the extra mile in finding the right product for me. This wasn't even his department! He came to me for assistance. It is this kind of customer service prevalent in all Home Depots that makes shopping there a pleasurable experience. Thanks for the service! Dan Taylor October 29, 2014
