Where do I Find My Garage Door Serial and Model Numbers?
There are a few times when you may need to find the serial and/or model number for your garage door. Garage door manufacturers place stickers on the doors, often in more than one place with all the pertinent information like serial and model numbers about that particular door.
The stickers typically have the company name and logo on it. The stickers can be small or large.
Standing in your garage, facing the door (if it’s closed) look for the stickers on the interior surface of the door. A common placement for the sticker is in the lower left-hand or right-hand corner.
Here’s a picture of a Clopay sticker with serial number on it, located on the lower left-hand corner.

Here’s an example of a larger sticker in the middle right-hand side of the door.
If you don’t see a sticker on the interior surface of the door, move to the side of the door and look up and down the height of the door for a narrow sticker. If your door is stuck in an open position, it may be harder to inspect this area.
Here’s a sticker on the side of the top panel of the door. You can see the Model Number 4050 on it (top row).
