Automatic Tubular Gate Opener
Automatic Tubular Gate Opener

This Automatic Tubular Gate Opener is designed to install on most any single or dual swing-type tubular-style gates. Operated using a hand-held transmitter, the opener is powered by an automotive-style battery, which can be recharged via either an electrical or solar source, allowing it to be used where AC power is not readily available. Each unit (kit) includes: gate opener arm w/ 6-foot cable, control box w/ controller, mounting/fastener hardware, remote transmitter, resettable AC transformer, battery harness, plus SafeForce entrapment protection device, which automatically limits the amount of force the system will exert on the leading edge of a moving gate. Among the optional customizing accessories are: solar panels, vehicle sensors, push-to-open bracket, and photo eye.
