This little device will do it for $30 on Amazon on any motor that can incorporate a press button switch to open/close.

Has anyone tried the Quiko motors from Jarks? If so what is the after sale service like and what about the motor itself in terms of durability and performance?

I am interested in their high speed swing motor.

Open the part with the key and pull it out, it's hinged and disengages the motor from the gears.

Like actually remove the little door from the unit ? Yank it out ? I'm trying to see what model this motor is so I can YouTube it - but not seeing it.

Open with key and pull outwards like a door. That motion disengages the motor on all TAUs i have seen. To reengage close the door and lock it.

I think the Quiko caught my eye because it take about 7 seconds to fully open a swing gate.

With 4 individual channels, I use it to control another gate and lights. Makes the app control side much easier than with 4 separate devices.

For some reason this is not doing anything. Can anyone else suggest an idea or even someone who can come help me out ? If we loose electricity we are basically caged in.

Assuming the key is turning fully but u can't pull out the flap..

With the remote, open and stop the gate slightly open. Then try to open the key flap. Sometimes the flap doesn't open due to the position of the gear
