This dang door is impossible for anyone other than myself to open, what do I need to make it easier? I am even open to an electric drive for it. Both ends are identical.

I'm not an overhead door guy, but, have you tried greasing it?

Tensioner adjustment not set or not working. This video covers what most of them work like.

If that doesn't work you might be able to get a chain hoist add-on winder for one side. I use one like this on my 12 foot tall barn door.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

I will try to adjust it when I get home from soccer practice, but I looked once before and don't recall seeing any springs or tensioners.

Thanks dkershen for the link!

They should have a tensioner adjustment just inside that metal end cap. I have all 3 of mine set to where one good pull and they open all the way up (12Wx12T). Takes only 2 pills to shut it.
