Step 5:Remove clamp or locking pliers from track while supporting the garage door. Manually guide the door down into the fully closed position. The garage door should not bind or contact the garage frame as it closes. If the door makes contact with the garage frame, place the garage door into the fully open position, re-secure a clamp or locking pliers and adjust track position by adding an additional 1/8” to the offset dimension and repeat Step 5. NOTE: It may be necessary to adjust the horizontal track section to align with vertical track section. This adjustment should be made with the door in the closed position.
Step 6:Remove slack in hardware by pulling firmly inward on the garage door and inspect gap distance between front of the door panel and the garage frame. Loosen angle bracket track fasteners (DO NOT remove) and adjust the track to achieve an approximate 1/8” gap between the front of the door panels and the garage frame. Tighten all track support bracket fasteners to secure track.
Step 7:The top guide wheel should be resting above the vertical track section of the track assembly. Loosen jam nuts on the top guide wheel and adjust the top door gap to approximately 1/8”. Tighten nuts securely. Repeat Step 6 and 7 for opposite side. After completing adjustments, an approximate 1/8” gap should now exist between the garage frame and outside face of door around the entire perimeter of the door.
