(Depends on the material of the door). Overall the edge of the curtain must be near the drum of the roller.
The spring: spring of the door matters a lot, the one we have to use the merlin requires the suspension of the coil which must hold the overall weight of the garage gate, in order to know and test the power of the spring coil one should lift the gate up and then release it. The best coil must allow the gate to move down slowly (like in a steady motion). If it doesn’t helps the gate to suspend for a while, then it is required to increase the coil power (buy a large spring so that it may survive the weight of the garage gate).
Opener: this is a bit technical for merlin garage door auto opener, that if the opener is on the left hand side than the wire and the jumper of the wire must be eliminated whereas if the client is planning to install the opener on the right side of the door than it can used the way it is, factory fitted.
