I have a lock and key garage door, but have always preferred automatic doors. Can you install something to make it automatic, or does it just have to be built-in that way?

Of course, it's a fairly simple system really, although it can be a pain to install. It does also depend on the exact specifications of the door - some lock and key doors are fitted in such a way that makes it more difficult than others to convert them. Ultimately though it all just comes down to adding a motor.

Thank you, that's brilliant news. I'd love to turn my lock and key garage door to an automatic door. Glad to know it's possible, even if it is a pain in the bum!
