BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO INSTALL YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR:
Read these instructions carefully and completely to become
familiar with all parts and installation steps.
You must read the installation manual for detailed instructions on
gate operator safety and proper use of the gate operator.
Thank you for purchasing a GTO/PRO® 2002XL When correctly installed and properly used, your GTO/PRO®
2002XL Operator will give you many years of reliable service. Please read the following information and watch the
enclosed videotape to ensure you have the correct system for your particular needs. Furthermore, this manual and the
videotape will enable you to properly install your GTO/PRO® 2002XL Automatic Gate Operator.
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator

is designed for installation on a pull-to-open dual leaf gate (gates that open
into the property). By purchasing an accessory bracket, the GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator can accommodate a
push-to-open dual leaf gate (gates that open out from the property). The gate must not exceed 2 feet in length and
weigh more than 400 pounds per leaf (please see Technical Specifcations on page 0). The GTO/PRO® 2002XL
Operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron gates. Use on solid (wood) gates is
not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind. If the wind is strong enough, the opener will
obstruct and stop.
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons,
automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed GTO/PRO®
Accessory Catalog) are available at most stores. Your store should be able to special order any accessory not in stock.
If your store cannot special order accessories, please call the GTO Sales Department (800-543-GATE).
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator features adjustable obstruction sensing. This safety feature makes the gate
stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory setting;
meaning the gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator also has an adjustable auto-close feature. After the gate reaches the fully open
position, it can be set to remain open up to 20 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button
at any time after the gate opens fully will cause it to close immediately. OFF is the factory setting; meaning the gate
will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again.
PLEASE NOTE—If your application requires any of the following:

Swing gates longer than 8 feet or weighing more than 850 pounds;
Slide gates;
Heavy duty or commercial uses;
Professional installation;
please call GTO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for information about our GTO/PRO professional
line of gate openers and accessories. Our Sales Department will be glad to give you the name and phone number of a
GTO/PRO dealer near you.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate openers produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential hazards associated with
improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate opener systems. Keep in mind that the gate opener is just
one component of the total gate operating system. Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with
convenience, security, and safety.
This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the consumer. Because there are many possible
applications of the gate opener, the safety precautions and warnings contained in this manual cannot be completely exhaustive
in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the safe design, installation, and use of this product. CAREFULLY
READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS TO
ENSURE THE SAFE SYSTEM DESIGN, INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.
Precautions and warnings in this manual are identifed with this warning symbol. The symbol identifes conditions
that can result in damage to the opener or its components, serious injury, or death.
Because GTO automatic gate openers are only part of the total gate operating system, it is the responsibility of the
consumer to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended use.
Disconnecting the Opener
. Turn control box power switch OFF.
2. Remove hairpin clip, clevis pin, and bushing
from either the front or rear mounting point.
3. Remove the opener from the mount.
The gate can be opened and closed manually
when the opener is disconnected.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For The Consumer
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to meet the requirements set forth in the instruction
manual could cause severe injury and/or death, for which the manufacturer cannot be held responsible.

2. When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed
far enough from the road to prevent traffc congestion.
3. The gate must be installed in a location that provides adequate clearance between it and adjacent structures when
opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates must not open into public access areas.
4. The gate and gate opener installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
. Verify this dual opener is proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use and the proper class rating.
2. Make sure the dual gate has been properly installed and swings freely in both directions. Repair or replace all worn
or damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate and will
enhance the performance of the opener and safety devices used with the system.

3. Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to disconnect the
opener for manual gate operation (see page 1).
4. This gate opener is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for pedestrian
use (see page 6).
5. Always keep people and objects away from the gate and its area of travel. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE
PATH OF A MOVING GATE.
6. Pay close attention to the diagram below and be aware of these areas at all times.

Entrapment Zones for a proper Pull-To-Open installation:
Zone – area between two gates.
Zone 2 – between the gate and the gate post.
Zone 3 – the path of the gate.
Zone 4 – the space between the gate in the open position and any object such as a wall, fence, tree, etc.
Zone 5 – pinch points between the opener and gate.
II. During Installation
. Install the gate opener on the inside of the property and fence line. DO NOT install an opener on the outside of the
gate where the public has access to it.

2. Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fngers or hands could be pinched.
3. Devices such as contact sensors (safety edges) and non contact sensors (photo beams) provide additional protection
against entrapment.

4. If push buttons or key switches are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located at least 0 feet from
any moving part of the gate (see diagram below). Never install any control device where a user will be tempted to
reach through the gate to activate the gate opener.
5. Do not activate your gate opener unless you can see it and can determine that its area of travel is clear of people,
pets, or other obstructions. Watch the gate through its entire movement.
6. Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate opener controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
III. After Installation
. Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert the public of automatic gate operation. It is
your responsibility to post warning signs on both sides of your gate. If any of these signs or warning decals become
damaged, illegible or missing, replace them immediately. Contact GTO for free replacements.
2. The gate is automatic and could move at any time, posing a serious risk of entrapment. No one should be in contact
with the gate when it is moving or stationary.

3. Do not attempt to drive into the gate area while the gate is moving; wait until the gate comes to a complete stop.
4. Do not attempt to "beat the gate" while the gate is closing. This is extremely dangerous.
5. Do not allow children or pets near your gate. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the
remote controls away from children and unauthorized users; store controls where children and unauthorized users do
not have access to them.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Always turn power to opener OFF before performing any
maintenance. Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and spray with silicone at least once per month.
7. Service the gate and gate opener regularly. Grease hinges, spray push pull tube with high quality silicone spray and
replace the battery every 3-5 years.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against
Entrapment
As specifed by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A..), automatic gate openers shall have an inherent entrapment
sensing system, and shall have provisions for, or be supplied with, at least one independent secondary means to protect
against entrapment. The GTO/PRO® 2002XL utilizes Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment sensing system as
the primary type of entrapment protection. Also, the GTO/PRO® 2002XL has provisions for the connection of Type B2
protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (e.g., safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (5.8.4 [i]):
A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and
outside of a vehicular swing gate system.
B. A hard wired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the
sensor and the gate opener is not subjected to mechanical damage.
C. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate opener for entrapment
protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or impeded by building
structures, natural landscaping or similar obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall function under the intended
end-use conditions.
ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 30A.1.1A)
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Automatic Gate Operator is designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds when the
gate comes in contact with an obstruction. Additionally, these openers are equipped with an audio entrapment
alarm which will activate if the unit obstructs twice while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for
a period of 5 minutes, or until the opener receives an intended signal from a hard wired entry/exit source
(e.g. push button control or keypad) and the gate returns to a fully open or fully closed position. Turning the
power switch on the control box OFF and back ON will also deactivate the alarm. Wireless controls such as
transmitters and wireless keypads will not deactivate the alarm.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Install Warning Signs
Entrapment Protection
GTO’s inherent obstruction settings, even when properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury in
some circumstances. For this reason, safety devices such as safety edge sensors (or photoelectric sensors), which stop and
reverse gate direction upon sensing an obstruction, are suggested for enhanced protection against entrapment.
Required Safety Precautions for Gates
Warning Signs
The warning signs (at right) must
be installed on both sides of the
gates (see page 7 for details).
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO/PRO® 2002XL Automatic
Gate Operator. Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed if pedestrian traffc is expected near the vehicular gate.
We recommend using the GTO Bulldog Pedestrian Gate Lock (Call the GTO Sales Department) for controlled access.
1. KEEP CLEAR! Gate may move at any time.
2. Do not allow children to operate gate or
play in gate area.
3. This gate is for vehicles only. Pedestrians

Preparation of the Gate
Step 1
The gates must be plumb, level, and swing freely on
their hinges. Wheels must not be attached to the gates.
The gates must move throughout their arc without
binding or dragging on the ground. Note that gates
over 250 lb. should have ball bearing hinges with grease
fttings.
Step 2
The fence posts must be secured in the ground with
concrete so they will minimize twist or fex when the
openers are activated. We recommend you position the
openers near the centerline of the gates to keep the gates
from twisting and fexing. The addition of horizontal
or vertical cross members (if they are not already in
place) to provide a stable area for mounting the gate
brackets is also important.
Installation Overview
Pull-to-Open Gates (Gate Opens into the Property)
The diagram shown below is an example of a pull-to-open installation on a chain link fence and dual gates. Furthermore, if
you have push-to-open gates, you will need to purchase two (2) push-to-open brackets (see Accessory Catalog) to properly
confgure your system. See Push to Open Installation on page 32 before proceeding.

Installation of Mounting Hardware
The position of the post bracket determines the leverage and effciency of the opener. The post bracket position also sets the
clearance between the opener and gate in the open and closed positions (minimum 2 inches).
The curved design of the post bracket works well for installations on round and square fence posts. Because the post bracket
carries the entire thrust of the active opener, bolts that completely penetrate the fence post must be used.
On wooden posts, place a metal plate or washer
(not supplied) between the nuts and the fence
post to prevent the thrust of the opener from
pulling the bolts and washers out of the wood.
NOTE: A fence post smaller than 6" in diameter
or 6" square should be made of metal instead
of wood so that it will remain stable while the
opener is moving the gate.

Determining the Mounting Position
of the Post Bracket Assembly and the Gate Bracket
Step 5
With the gate in the open position (up to 0º from its closed position) and the gate opener fully retracted, adjust the post
bracket assembly and gate bracket until the opener is level. While holding the opener level, use C-clamps to temporarily
keep the post bracket assembly and gate bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.
Step 3
IInsert the
3
/8" x 2" bolt through
the center hole of the post
brackets and post pivot bracket
as shown. Fasten a
3
/8" lock
washer,
3
/8" washer and
3
/8" nut
on the end of the bolt. DO NOT
overtighten the nut because the
post pivot bracket will have to be
adjusted later.
Step 4
Attach post bracket assembly and gate bracket to the opener with the clevis pins and bushings. Secure the clevis pins with
hairpin clips.

two Push To Open brackets (see
Accessory catalog). Also, see Push-
to-Open Installation beginning on
page 32.

Be sure gate opener
and bracket don't bind.
Step 6
When you have achieved the required position for the post pivot bracket in the open position, insert the 5/6" x -3/4" bolt
through the aligned holes of the post bracket and post pivot bracket to hold it in place. Remove the clevis pin from the front
mount and while supporting the gate opener, swing the gate and gate opener to the closed position. With the gate and gate
opener in the closed position check the clearance and be sure that the gate opener is not binding at the post pivot bracket.
If you don't have 2 inches of clearance or the gate opener is binding on the post pivot bracket, remove the 5/6" x -3/4" bolt
and readjust the pivot bracket until you can achieve these important clearances.
With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement, reattach the opener to the gate
bracket in the open position and recheck the gate opener level and make sure the brackets are clamped securely.
IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly, be sure that the position allows
for minimum 2 inches of clearance between the gate and the opener in both the open and closed positions, as shown in the
diagrams below. This clearance will give the opener the most effcient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and
more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.
TIP: Turning the pivot bracket over gives
more hole alignment options for the post
pivot bracket assembly. You can also move
the entire post pivot bracket assembly to
different positions on the gate post to help
achieve the proper clearances.

NOTE: In cases where the
fence post has a diameter larger
than 6", threaded rods or
carriage bolts longer than 8"
(not supplied) must be used.
Step 10
Mark reference points for bolt holes on
the gate cross member through middle of

Installation of the Closed Position Stops
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Gate Operators frmly hold the gates in the closed position using positive
stops. The positive stops help stabilize the gate leaves in the closed position. To further enhance
stability and security, we strongly recommended using an optional GTO/PRO® Automatic Gate
Lock (see Accessory Catalog) with your dual gate.
IMPORTANT: You need to determine
which side of the driveway you will mount the
control box. From this point on the gate and
gate opener on the same side as the control box
will be referred to as the MASTER gate and
gate opener. The gate and gate opener on the
opposite side of the driveway from the control
box will be referred to as the SLAVE gate and
gate opener.

Step 1
Attach the horizontal closed position stop plate to the
MASTER gate leaf.
Detach the gate operators from the gates and move the
gates to their closed position (Illustration A). Using
appropriate hardware for your type of gate (U-bolts for
tube or chain link; screw or bolts for wood or metal)
attach the closed position stop plate (horizontally) about
mid height on the MASTER gate frame. Do not tighten
it completely at this time. Slide the stop plate toward the
frame of the SLAVE gate leaf until they touch (Illustration
B). Once you have moved the stop plate to the correct
position, tighten its hardware completely.
NOTE: The optional ground stop post is used to provide a secure point for the SLAVE gate to close
against. If you will be using the GTO/PRO Horizontal Gate Lock accessory with your gate opener
system, the closed position ground stop is REQUIRED, as shown in Steps 2 and 3 on the next page.

Step 2
Install a low profle ground stop (not provided) beneath the
SLAVE gate stop plate.
The ground stop needs to be positioned near the end of the
gate as shown in Illustration A and may be made of metal
or concrete and should be frmly secured in the ground (we
recommend setting it in concrete).

Step 2
Make sure the control box power switch is in the OFF
position. The ON/OFF Switch is located on the bottom of
the control box. Remove the control box cover and slide
the battery into position with its terminals to the RIGHT
(see illustration). Connect the BLACK battery wire to the
NEGATIVE (–) battery terminal. Connect the RED battery
wire to the POSITIVE (+) terminal. Pay close attention to
the color of the wires. If the wires are connected incorrectly,
the control board will be damaged. NEVER insert the
battery with the terminals to the left.
Mounting the Control Box
Step 3
Strip approximately
3
/6" of insulation from each
wire of the power cable. Twist each exposed wire
tightly (there are seven [7] wires inside the power cable
sheath). Loosen sealing nut on strain relief hub at
bottom of control box. Insert power cable into control
box through strain relief. Thread approximately 6"
of the power cable into the control box and retighten
sealing nut until the power cable locks into place.
Step 1
Mount the control box using the screws (provided) or another
secure mounting method. The control box must be mounted at
least 3 feet above the ground to protect it from rain splash,
snow, etc., and at least 3 feet from an AC power source to
prevent electrical interference.

OPTIONAL Solar Panels and Gate Activity
Powering the System
Installation of the Transformer
IMPORTANT:
• The transformer is designed and intended for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged only into
an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover or housing (available at local electrical supply stores)
must be used.
• All low voltage wire used with the GTO/PRO
®
2002XL Gate Opener must be 6 gauge dual conductor,
multi-stranded, direct burial wire (see page 22 and the Accessory Catalog). Do not run more than
1000 feet of wire.
• If your gate is more than 000 ft. from an ac power source, you will need to use at least one 0 watt
Solar Panel to charge the battery (see Accessory Catalog). Refer to the Solar Panels and Gate
Activity chart below.
Step 1
Make sure the power switch is OFF before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2
Select the electrical outlet into which you will plug the transformer.
Measure the distance from this outlet to the control box following the
path where the wire will be laid. After you have measured how much
wire is needed, cut the wire to the appropriate length.
ON/OFF Switch
The table and map illustrate
the maximum number of
gate cycles to expect per day
in a particular area when
using from 0 to 30 watts of
solar charging power. (see
Accessory Catalog). The
fgures shown are for winter
(minimum sunlight) and do not account for
the use of any accessory items. Accessories
connected to your system will draw additional
power from the battery.
NOTE: A maximum of 30 watts of solar
charging power can be connected to the GTO/
PRO® 2002XL Gate Opener. Consult Solar
Panel Installation Instructions for further
information.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LOW VOLTAGE WIRE
The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge multi-stranded, low voltage, PVC
sheathed wire. This particular gauge enables the transformer to provide an adequate charge through the
control board to the battery at distances up to 1000 ft.
DO NOT use telephone wire or solid core wire. Unlike multi-stranded wire, these types of wire are
inadequate for use with your gate opener system. Telephone wire and solid core wire do not deliver
enough voltage for your gate opener to function and will cause the system to go into a condition known
as "low voltage lockout."
NEVER splice wires together. Splicing permits corrosion and seriously degrades the wire's ability to
carry an adequate current.
Step 5
Strip
3
/6" off the ends of the low voltage wire and
twist tightly. Attach these ends to the GTO 18VOLT
TRANSFORMER OR SOLAR (GTO Transformer)
terminals located on the POWER INPUTS (GTO
Transformer) terminal block (see illustration at right).
Be certain not to let the exposed wires touch each
other!
Insert one transformer wire into an GTO
TRANSFORMER terminal. Insert the other
transformer wire into the remaining GTO
TRANSFORMER terminal. The transformer wires
can be connected to the GTO TRANSFORMER
terminals regardless of polarity or color.
Tighten set screws against exposed end of wires. A

Step 3
Lay the measured length of low voltage wire in a trench following a path from
the selected electrical outlet to the control box. Wires coming up from the
ground should be run through PVC conduit to protect them from lawn mower
blades, weed eaters, and grazing animals. Be sure to bury the wire laid in the
trench.
Step 4
Feed the low voltage wires upward through the strain relief opening on the
lower left of the control box. Pull 6" to 8" of wire into the control box and
tighten the strain relief screw to secure the wires.
23
Step 7
Plug the transformer into the electrical outlet.
(Use of a surge protector with the transformer is strongly
recommended.)
HINT: Keep a few mothballs in the control box to
discourage insects from entering it and damaging the
control board.
Step 6
Strip

/2" of insulation from the ends of the low voltage
wire. Attach these stripped ends to the transformer
terminals.
A dab of household petroleum jelly on each terminal will
help prevent corrosion.
Make sure the exposed wires do not touch each other!

ON - Soft start enabled (factory preset).
OFF - Soft start disabled.
The Soft Start/Stop feature slowly starts the gate
as it begins to open and slows the gate as it comes
to the closed position. This saves wear and tear on
the gate and gate opener system.
DIP Switch #2 - Warning Buzzer
ON - Buzzer warning enabled (factory preset).
OFF - Buzzer warning disabled.
The Warning Buzzer alerts you when the gate
opener is beginning to either open or close the
gate. It sounds for the frst 2 seconds in each
direction. It also sounds a warning when the gate
obstructs two times in one cycle. Switching this to
OFF only disables the open and close warning not
the obstruction warning.
DIP Switch #3 - Push/Pull-to-Open
ON - Push to open.
OFF - Pull to open (factory preset).
If your gate opens into the property the DIP
Switch is set to the OFF position (factory setting).
If your gate opens out from the property the DIP
Switch must be set to the ON position. NOTE:
if you have a Push-to-Open gate application you
will need a Push-to-Open bracket (see Push-to-
Open Instructions on page 32).
DIP Switch #4 - Delay/Simultaneous operation
ON - Slave opens simultaneously with master.
OFF - Slave opens after master.
NOTE: Not applicable for single gate operator.
Auto Close
The 'AUTO CLOSE TIME' pot controls
auto close feature.
Turning the pot all the way counter-clockwise
will turn auto close feature off. The minimum
auto close time is 3 seconds. The maximum
(turn the pot all the way clockwise) auto close
time is 20 seconds.

Setting the Closed Position Limits
for Pull to Open Applications
Your GTO/PRO® 2002XL has two Limit Settings
) OPEN Limit setting: (Gate in the OPEN POSITION / FACTORY SET NOT ADJUSTABLE) The open limit setting is
the fully open position.
2) CLOSED Limit setting: (Gate in the CLOSED POSITION) To achieve optimum closed position, you are required
to complete the following SEVEN STEPS:
Step 1
Confrm that the power switch is in the ON position, and the gates are in the OPEN POSITIONS.
Step 2
Activate your openers by pressing the entry transmitter
button. Your gates should now be moving from the fully
open positions toward their closing position. Prepare to
STOP gate that reaches the desired closed position frst
by pressing the entry transmitter button again. This step
may be repeated until desired close position is achieved.
Once the desired CLOSED position has been achieved,
proceed to step 3.
Step 3
Note which gate has reached the desired closed position
(typically it's the slave gate), program the closed limit
setting by pressing and holding the corresponding
'LEARN MAST LIMIT' or 'LEARN SLV LIMIT' for 5
seconds or until the buzzer sounds.
Step 4
Press the transmitter button and allow the gates to
return to the fully open position. YOUR FIRST
GATE’S CLOSED POSITION LIMIT IS NOW
PROGRAMMED.
Step 5
Activate your openers again by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gates should now be moving from the fully open
positions toward their closing position. The frst gate will stop at the spot you just programmed and the second gate will
continue to close until you press the transmitter button again. The optimum CLOSED POSITION for the second gate is
when it closes frmly, without excess tension, against the frst gate. This step may be repeated until desired close position is
achieved. Once the desired CLOSED position has been achieved, proceed to step 6.
Step 6
Repeat step 3 for the other gate that has not been set in step 3.
Step 7
Press the transmitter button and allow the gates to return to the fully open position. BOTH YOUR MASTER AND SLAVE
GATE’S CLOSED POSITION LIMITS ARE NOW PROGRAMMED.

Setting Your Personal Transmitter Code
All GTO transmitters are set to a standard code at the factory and are ready to operate your GTO/PRO 2002XL® Gate
Opener
®
. For your safety and security, however, we strongly recommend that you replace the factory setting with your own
personal code. Follow the directions below:
TESTING YOUR CLOSED LIMIT SETTING:
Press your entry transmitter and allow your gates to close. If CLOSED positions are not correct or need to be changed, you
will need to CLEAR your CLOSED LIMIT settings and follow Steps -7 again.
CLEARING PROGRAMMED CLOSED LIMIT SETTING:
If you make a mistake and set the limit at the wrong position – press your transmitter to return the gates to their fully opened
positions, then press and hold the 'LEARN MAST LIMIT' or 'LEARN SLV LIMIT' button for 5 seconds. This will clear the
memory for the closed limit positions. Follow Steps -7 again.
3. “Teach” the New Code to Control Board Memory
A. Press and hold transmitter button.
B. Press and hold the LEARN RMT (Learn Remote) button
on the control board until the buzzer sounds.

2. Set the transmitter DIP Switches
There are nine (9) transmitter DIP switches; each can be placed in three different
positions (+, 0, –). DO NOT set all the switches in the same position, such as all +,
all 0, or all –. Once the DIP switches have been set to a personal code, replace front
cover.
WARNING: No other adjustments should be made inside the transmitter.
1. Remove the Transmitter Cover
On the back of the transmitter use a small phillips head screw driver to remove
the two screws on the sides of the visor clip and separate the front cover from the
transmitter. With the front cover removed, the battery and the DIP switches will
be exposed. To set a new code, use a small screwdriver to move the switches.

Installing the Receiver
Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting it.
Consider the following when mounting the receiver:
• Standard receiver cable length is 0 feet (receivers with a longer cable are available as special
order items; call the GTO Sales Department). NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the cable through PVC conduit to protect it from damage.
• DO NOT run cable through metal conduit because the receiver signal range will be decreased.
• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing ac wiring.
• DO NOT mount receiver on a metal fence or post; doing so will decrease signal range.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 00 feet depending upon weather, topography, and
external interference.
• DO NOT mount upside down.
• MOUNT so that you have line of sight between remote and antenna.
• MOUNT 3 feet away from AC voltage.

IMPORTANT: For safety reasons the
obstruction setting or Stall Force on the GTO/
PRO® 2002XL control board comes from
the factory set at MIN (minimum). In many
gate installations this setting will need to be
adjusted to overcome the weight and size of
the gates.
The Stall Force potentiometer on the control
board operates like a volume control on a radio.
It controls the obstruction sensitivity (or the amount
of force the opener will apply to an obstruction)
before it automatically stops and reverses direction for
approximately two (2) seconds.
Use a small slotted screwdriver to turn the arrow in the center of
the potentiometer. Adjust the sensitivity from the MINIMUM position
where the gate operates without obstructing from its own weight or the
wind conditions in your area.
NOTE: You may need to increase the stall force in cold weather due to
increased resistance from gate hinges.
28
Connecting Additional Safety Devices
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL is equipped with built-in obstruction sensitivity. The opener is designed to stop and reverse the
gate within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. However, obstruction sensitivity, although functioning
properly, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury in some circumstances. To augment your protection against
entrapment, GTO recommends using some form of additional safety device. When installed, contact sensors must be
mounted in compliance with UL 325, Underwriters Laboratories safety standard for gate openers. Review page 5 for infor-
mation about mounting requirements for safety edges ("contact sensors").
Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions for information
about installing these devices on a vehicular gate.
PLEASE NOTE: Contact sensors are not included with the GTO/PRO® 2002XL.
The GTO/PRO® 2002XL will ONLY accept accessory devices with normally open dry contact output.
Make sure the power switch to the opener is
turned off before connecting safety device
wiring to the terminal blocks. Unplugging
the transformer does not turn power to the
opener OFF.
Contact Sensor Input Connection:
Connect one of the OPEN EDGE contact sensor wires
to the COMMON (COM) terminal and the other to the
OPEN EDGE terminal on the GTO/PRO® 2002XL
control board.
Connect one of the CLOSE EDGE contact sensor wires
to the COMMON (COM) terminal and the other to the
CLOSE EDGE terminal on the GTO/PRO® 2002XL
control board.
Activation of a contact sensor while the gate is in motion will
cause the gate to stop and reverse within two (2) seconds.
Contact Sensors (safety edges)
If not installing a contact sensor skip to next section.
Although GTO strongly recommends the use of additional safety devices, we do not endorse any
specifc brand names. Only use products that are certifed and listed to be in compliance with any
applicable UL standards (Underwriters Laboratories) and national and regional safety codes.
Call GTO Sales at 1-800-543-4283 for information on compatible
products for your specifc application.

Determining The Mounting Position
of The Post Bracket Assembly
Step 1
With the gates closed, adjust the post bracket assembly and the gate
bracket until the opener is level. While holding the opener level, use
C-clamps to temporarily keep the post bracket assembly and gate
bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.
Push to Open Installation
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out from the property.
A Push-to-Open Bracket is required for this type of installation (see
Accessory Catalog). If you have a pull-to-open gate (gate opens into the
property), return to page 3; step 3.

In a PUSH-TO-OPEN installation the openers are installed while the gates
are in the closed position.

bolt through the aligned holes of the post bracket
and post pivot bracket and fasten it with the
5

IMPORTANT: If you loosened the clamp on
the post bracket to achieve the optimum position,
tighten it in its new position and recheck the gate
bracket with the gate in the open position (move the
gate bracket and re-clamp it if necessary).
IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post
pivot bracket assembly be sure that the position allows for maximum
clearance between the gate and the opener in both the open and closed
positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the
opener the most effcient leverage point for opening and closing the gate
and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.

With the gate in the fully closed position and the opener retracted, swing the opener to the gate. Mark reference points for
bolt holes on gate cross member through middle of gate bracket slots. The opener must be level. (Some vertical adjustment
is possible by sliding the post bracket assembly up and down.) Drill
3
/8" holes into the gate cross member as marked. Fasten
gate bracket to cross member using (2) 3/8" x 3" bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts. Attach the opener to the post bracket
assembly and gate bracket using clevis pins, bushings, and hairpins clips.
Step 4

Setting the Open Position Limit
Step 1
Confrm that the power switch is in the ON position, and the gates are in the CLOSED POSITIONS.
Step 2
Activate your openers by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gates should now be moving from the closed positions
toward their open position. Prepare to STOP gates by pressing the entry transmitter button again when the frst gate reaches
the desired open position. This step may be repeated until desired open position is achieved. Once the desired OPEN
position has been achieved, proceed to step 3.
Step 5
Install the second gate opener on the other

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Thank you for purchasing a GTO/PRO® 2002XL When correctly installed and properly used, your GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator will give you many years of reliable service. Please read the following information and watch the enclosed videotape to ensure you have the correct system for your particular needs. Furthermore, this manual and the videotape will enable you to properly install your GTO/PRO® 2002XL Automatic Gate Operator. The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator is designed for installation on a pull-to-open dual leaf gate (gates that open into the property). By purchasing an accessory bracket, the GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator can accommodate a push-to-open dual leaf gate (gates that open out from the property). The gate must not exceed 2 feet in length and weigh more than 400 pounds per leaf (please see Technical Specifications on page 0). The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron gates. Use on solid (wood) gates is not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind. If the wind is strong enough, the opener will obstruct and stop. The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons, automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed GTO/PRO® Accessory Catalog) are available at most stores. Your store should be able to special order any accessory not in stock. If your store cannot special order accessories, please call the GTO Sales Department (800-543-GATE). The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator features adjustable obstruction sensing. This safety feature makes the gate stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory setting; meaning the gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction. The GTO/PRO® 2002XL Operator also has an adjustable auto-close feature. After the gate reaches the fully open position, it can be set to remain open up to 20 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button at any time after the gate opens fully will cause it to close immediately. OFF is the factory setting; meaning the gate will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again. PLEASE NOTE—If your application requires any of the following: Swing gates longer than 8 feet or weighing more than 850 pounds; Slide gates; Heavy duty or commercial uses; Professional installation; please call GTO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for information about our GTO/PRO professional line of gate openers and accessories. Our Sales Department will be glad to give you the name and phone number of a GTO/PRO dealer near you.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO INSTALL YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR: Read these instructions carefully and completely to become familiar with all parts and installation steps. You must read the installation manual for detailed instructions on gate operator safety and proper use of the gate operator.

Wooden Post Metal Plate Wooden Post Metal Plate Post  Bracket Post Bracket Post Pivot Bracket Post  Pivot Bracket IMPORTANT: We strongly recommend using steel pipe. bolts that completely penetrate the fence post must be used. The post bracket position also sets the clearance between the opener and gate in the open and closed positions (minimum 2 inches). The curved design of the post bracket works well for installations on round and square fence posts. NOTE: A fence post smaller than 6" in diameter or 6" square should be made of metal instead of wood so that it will remain stable while the opener is moving the gate.Installation of Mounting Hardware The position of the post bracket determines the leverage and efficiency of the opener.  Recommended Reinforcement Examples Steel Pipe Cut in Half (not supplied) Gate Bracket Gate Bracket Panel Gate Gate Bracket 1" x 6" Wood Reinforcement Thin Walled Tube Gate Wood or Metal Reinforcement (not supplied) 2 .

With the gate and gate opener in the closed position check the clearance and be sure that the gate opener is not binding at the post pivot bracket.IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly. as shown in the diagrams below. reattach the opener to the gate bracket in the open position and recheck the gate opener level and make sure the brackets are clamped securely. Remove the clevis pin from the front mount and while supporting the gate opener. You can also move the entire post pivot bracket assembly to different positions on the gate post to help achieve the proper clearances. This clearance will give the opener the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area. 2" minimum Gate in the CLOSED POSITION Pinch Area Be sure gate opener and bracket don't bind.
