What are link arms and anchor pins?Updated 6 months ago

On both canopy and retractable garage doors, link arms provide a stabilised pivot point for the garage door to open and close on. 

Anchor pins connect the link arm to the top of the garage spring, It allows the force of the spring to move the garage door around the pivot point created by the link arm. Separate anchor pins are only found on retractable style doors. 

You can see our range of anchor pins and link arms here. If you cannot find your item, please email photos to [email protected] and our team will endeavour to find the part.
