Where does the cable go (retract) when the door is closed? I could see the cable scratching the back of the

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Brushed Chrome Emergency Release Lock Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from keep looking 1. I took the key out of the lock while it was outside of the cylinder and three of the four mechanisms in the lock fell on the driveway. Luckily I found all of the little springs. 2. There's no included backing plate or proper washers, so be prepared to fab one up yourself if you have an insulated aluminum door. 3. The included cable was too short, but I knew that when I bought it. What surprised me is that I'm pretty sure it would have been too short if I installed it in the middle of the top panel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product was not the quality I expected Since I lost the keys to my current emergency release I bought this kit to replace it. The wire was too short and the gauge was thinner than on the original device so I was hesitant to install it. Hence, the quality was lacking. It's not as easy to install myself as it looked to be online and so I will have to hire someone to do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
