I have constant power going to both my garage door openers. What I'm trying to do is come up with a way to easily cut power to them without having to get out and climb a small ladder to pull the power cords. I know they make the pull chains for lamp ceiling fixtures, I was just wondering if they made an adapter with a pull chain to put between the garage door power cords and the ceiling outlets. Can anyone help or have a better idea?
I agree with B Mitch's answer as a good first and best method of switching off the power to the garage door opener. If you don't want to run wires etc, you could replace the outlet that the opener plugs into with a keyless pull string light bulb holder. A keyless socket is like the ones you see in basements. It is a simple 4 inch round porcelain or plastic light fixture. Instead of a bulb, you can screw in a plug adapter. All the parts you would need should cost less than $5.00
You can place a pull switch some where in between the supply and the motor as lon as its rated to your current system 110/220VAC and 3-5AMP is ample. Make sure to have it earthed (if you have the earth available)
There are multispet ones - so be carefull not to buy 3 speed (but you can merge all outputs to one if you want - you will jsut nned to pull the chain 3 times - or figure something more clever out)
