What Is a Trolley Carriage?

A fully functioning trolley carriage is arguably the most essential element in the process of opening and closing a garage door. The carriage sits on top of the trolley, or the rail that connects the garage door to the garage door opener. It is designed to pull the operator arm of the door up and down with either a belt, chain or cable. It also allows for emergency release and manual opening or closing of the door using the rope that hangs off of it.

How Do I Know My Trolley Carriage is Broken?

There are a few telltale signs you should be aware of that indicate your trolley carriage may need to be replaced. The most jarring signs will occur when you try to open or close the garage door. If you have noticed either of the following issues, you should contact Cal’s Garage Doors as soon as possible to get the repair or replacement process started:

  • Loud noises from the area around the trolley
  • Garage door moving in reverse
  • Movement from the trolley carriage with no response from the garage door

How Should I Prepare My Garage Door for Repair?

We know you want to get back to dealing with your regular daily routine as soon as possible. To speed up the process for our team, there are a few steps you can take before we arrive to prepare your trolley carriage for repair. Refer to the following steps for guidance and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have:

  • Pull the red emergency cord that connects the opener to the trolley carriage

Trust our Highly Skilled Professionals to Get the Job Done Right

We typically do not recommend any at-home repair attempts. Our professionals have been specifically trained in this field and can accomplish this job quickly and at the highest quality. If you try to remove or adjust the trolley carriage in any way beforehand, the door could experience further damage. Worse yet, these attempts could result in unintended injuries to yourself or others. Before we begin the repair or replacement process, we’ll ensure the entire area is safe and secure by attaching the chain to the trolley rail. We’ll get started by performing a full assessment of your garage door to guarantee that the problem has been properly diagnosed. We will then remove the chain from each side of the trolley to open up space for the installation of the new components. Finally, we’ll replace the chain and ensure that the tension levels are in check. You can rest assured that our team will get the job done right so you can get back to your daily routine.
