    To locate someone that works on gates, you can use our distributor look up page. Please understand, distributors do not install or service gates. When you contact the distributor in your area, ask them to recommend a reputable install and service company in your area. The distributor is the best option because their customers are the ones who purchase, install and service our products that you own.

    You have some options. First and foremost, you need to know which product of ours that you now own. The name of the model will be on the top left hand corner of the main control board inside the box. It will read “Patriot” or “Patriot RSL” or “Ranger”. Head on over to download the manual for your specific gate operator. There is a lot of information in there that may solve your particular situation including a giant troubleshooting section in the back of the manual.

    Now, if you tried going through the manual and your gate is still not working, you may call our support line at (888) 204-0174 and we will do our best to get your situation resolved. However, before you call, please have some basic hand tools and be at your gate. We will need to get an understanding of your specific configuration as all installations are not the same. You will need to be our eyes and we may ask you do perform specific tasks. This is the quickest way to get to the bottom of your gate issue.

    US Automatic is a manufacturer of high quality gate operators and accessories. Therefore, US Automatic does not install or service the products we manufacture. Using our distributor look up page, you may contact a distributor in your area and ask them to recommend a dealer or service person to come out and look at your gate. Or, you may look in the yellow pages under “gates” or “fences”.
