Can I Use A Side Mount Opener With Extension Springs On My Door?

You can, but in most cases you can only use a side mounted garage door opener on your garage door if certain conditions exist and the the required parts can be installed.

The primary requirements are that side mounted garage door openers require torsion springs, at least 3” of clearance above the torsion bar, at least 12 inches of side-room next to the garage door opening,and an electric outlet within 6 feet.

There are a number of other factors that can determine whether you can install a side-mounted garage door opener and a professional should review your situation in person.
