    Side Mount Garage door opener conversion?

    Has anyone taken a traditional style over head garage door opener and converted it to a side mount? I was thinking that I could install a large sprocket (proper ratio to allow the door to fully open) on the jackshft and mount the opener on the wall with a 2' length of chain to drive the door. I know their are models made for this, but they are also a bit spendy and mine is brand new. Andrew

    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
