Posted on Tuesday 3rd December 2019

A lost or stolen garage door opener remote can leave you wondering what you can do to help secure your home. The remote will allow access to your garage and, potentially, your home. It is vital to take action right away, even if you are not sure if the remote was actually stolen.

Step 1: Reset the Garage Door Opener

All modern automatic garage door openers can be reset. Review the owner’s manual that came with your opener to find out how to reset the garage door opener. Resetting the opener allows you to change the code the remotes use. If you have a spare opener, be sure to recode it so you can continue to use the opener. garage remote controller with visor clip

Step 2: Order a New Garage Door Remote

You might be wondering, “Where can I buy a garage door opener remote?” The easiest option is to shop online for your make and model. Even if you have an older opener, you can still find aftermarket remotes compatible with your opener.

Step 3: Disconnect the Automatic Opener

If you do not have a spare remote you can reset and recode, and you have to wait for your replacement to arrive, you will want to disconnect the automatic opener so you can manually open and close the garage door. All you should have to do is pull the quick-disconnect cord to release the door. Just be sure to lock the garage door while using it manually.
