Will this work on a Pella door?

Asked by Mitch November 21, 2018
7
Answers

Yes. It worked with my Pella 192 inch by 84 inch door. All of the holes for the self-tapping screws lined up except one was slightly off center but the self-tapping feature took care of that. Pella recommends a reinforcement bracket and in the instructions stated that the reinforcement bracket should come with the electric garage opener, but the Chaimberland brand I bought did not have one included.

Will this work with an older wooden garage door?

I believe it would work as long as you follow the recommendations for reinforcing the top of the door with 48 inch punched angle iron to distribute the pressure when it is being lifted.

Is the bracket adjustable to fit an 18 inch top panel?

Asked by Brian July 23, 2016

Answers

I don't believe you can easily modify the 21 inch bracket. I did notice in the directions that came with my kit that an 18" bracket kit is available by special order.

Can this be installed over the current support bracket that is there?

Asked by Keith December 26, 2018

Answers

The operator comes with a small bracket that fastens to the style on the panel, but is not used when an ORB (Operator Reinforcement Bracket) is available. It is highly recommended to reinforce the top panel with an ORB and at least a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" punched angle 14ga (12ga is better) running the full length of the panel on the top edge. And it is preferable to support the top panel with a support stutt instead of punched angle, especially when the door is longer than 10' or is insulated and/or has windows. The manufacturer's warranty will not be honored if the door is not properly reinforced when attached to an automatic opener.

The reinforcement Bracket is it suppose to open and close when the door goes up and down?

No, the bracket does not move. It is firmly attached to the top panel of the garage door and does not move independent of the garage door.

5/16". I actually bought a Everbilt 5/16 in. x 2-3/4 in. Zinc-Plated Square Wire Lock Pin for $3 out of the specialty fasteners drawer, and that way I couldn't drop or lose the cotter pin. It fits perfectly.

Easy Repair for $25
My garage door opener’s bracket detached from the garage door. This reinforced bracket took about 15 minutes to install and the door is securely attached to the opener. If you are missing a bracket reinforcement like I was I strongly reccomend adding this to your door.

This is perfect for the job it is meant to do. Not the greatest installation hardware. You will likely need additional/different screws.

Great Piece of Braket - Every Double Garage door needs one.
It was so painful to see screws flying over my cars as I was closing the garage door. The builder should have installed a better reinforcement since the beginning. I didn't know if a such brackets existed until I saw it on the HD Website. there was a gentleman who had the same problem, he used a different method in his video on YouTube then I started searching HD to find a piece of right angle to use as reinforcement. And that's how I found this bracket instead. the whole thing took me about 20-30 minutes max because I had to drill new holes in my case since I wanted it to be stronger.

Use this item to replace my broken lift arm bracket. It feels much more solid than the old bracket, where only 2 screws were used and both eventually broke off. My garage door panel is 18" so this items (designed for 21") can not fit right away, wish they would carry a 18" SKU. I used a grinding tool to cut off the bottom part and also cut out some small opens to fit the existing screws on the garage door. Glad with the final result and feel really lucky that I could find this item in my local store (only 2 left!) and also have the right grinding tool handy for the modification.

My original garage door opener "drawbar"bracket pulled out completely from the garage door several years ago. At the time my house was only a few years old and I simply shifted the bracket to a new location (clean material) and reinstalled the bracket/screws. Fast forward to today and it happened again due to the lack of structural support in the bracket/door interface. Anyway I came across this repair Bracket and tried it out...Since my upper panel is only 18" I had to modify by trimming offer 2.5" of material. Took me about 1.5 hours to modify and install the new bracket. Nice kit!

This plate was purchased to repair one that was bent and twisted from another part failing. It fit perfectly after using the original one as a template to drill a few extra holes for mounting. Much stronger than the original!
