All About Garage Door Travel Limits

You can own a garage door for a long time and never even know that it has travel limits and travel limit adjustments. Travel limits set how far up your garage door goes when it opens and how far down it goes when it closes.

Due to a variety of reasons, a garage door may occasionally need its travel limits adjusted. Here at the Overhead Door Company of Lexington, we help customers daily with their garage door issues, and we actually do receive a lot of calls related to travel limits.

The garage door opener typically has a way to adjust its limits. Older ones had screws that you could turn, but more recent ones are based on buttons (either sequences or a simple up and down option).

If you know how to do it, adjusting your garage door’s travel limits isn’t a big deal. Be warned, however, that some doors have buttons that control more than just travel limits. For example, the same button can pair and unpair your car remote controls, etc. With that in mind, you may want to let a professional inspect your opener before you proceed.

Your door may or may not need its travel limits altered. If you’re in any doubt, it’s best to contact us here at the Overhead Door Company of Lexington. We service all kinds of garage doors and openers, and we can do the same for you.
