There are two methods of holding the gate open.  

  1. Use your manual release keys to disengage the clutch on the arms and then walk it open and reengage the clutches. This is a temporary method that will retain your programmed auto close time for the next time you use it.
  2. Use the programming method. To accomplish this, you'll need to follow these steps
    1. Hold the FUNC button for 4 seconds
    2. Press the FUNC button to cycle through from P1 all the way to PA
    3. Immediately press DEC until you see 0
    4. Finally, press the FUNC until the display goes back to flashing "- -".This method is changing your auto close to 0 and you will need to press the remote for both the open and close cycle.
