U.S. Automatic Ranger 500 gate openers come with bolt-on brackets that will require additional maintenance to keep them secure. To provide the correct support, and to fasten the linear actuator mount, we recommend installing the brackets using carriage bolts, lock nuts, and washers (Do Not Use Lag Type Bolts). Loose or unsecured installation of linear actuator mount will cause the unit to fail and not properly operate.

The type of gate, power supply, and contributing environmental factors determines whether or not additional supplies are needed. For further details, consult the product manual that comes with this gate opener model.
