    If no adjustable rollers, open door and run a couple of 2 screws into the middle of the track. Then back them out a little at a time until the door just clears when it slides. The protruding screws will prevent the door from being lifted from the track.

    I added a switch to the door motor outlet, I leave it off unless I need to open the door. I put it up about 5 ft high so theres no mistaking it for a light switch and leaving it on inadvertently.


    Just saw this, using a zip tie to prevent the hanger trick
    Both of my garage doors are zip tied.
