Motor Release Keys

Every electric gate kit comes with an option to disconnect the motor from the gate in the event of power failure. This critical functionality means that you will never get stuck on your driveway, especially in an emergency! In most cases, this manual release comes in the form of a key. Your instruction manuals will show you how to safely release the gates using this because on each operator, the process is slightly different.

Brands such as BFT, FAAC and Beninca mainly provide personalised keys which come with your kit. LiftMaster keys are generic and therefore we have spares available in case of a lost key (because we all know just how easily that happens!).

If you do require a key for another brand of operator then please give us a call and we can contact the manufacturer.
