GTO 500 gate arm problem
We have a GTO 500 gate opener, and the aluminum tube that extends outward from the unit to open the gate has broken. I opened the gate not realizing it had not fully unlatched and "ripped" the aluminum tube that comes out of the unit when we want to open the gate.
The company says our only option is to replace the entire arm assembly. Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing that won't cost quite so much money?
