The time required for the installation of a garage door opener will vary depending of your mechanical skills. If you are not a professional installer, a good portion of your time will be spent reading the accompanying installation manual. It is always a good idea to familiarize yourself with the task at hand before picking up any tools. After unpacking, the installation time will amount to around 1 to 4 hours. We always advise having a second pair of hands available simply for holding. While not necessary, it will reduce your installation time further.
