    If you take apart the door latch which can be done by removing the plate and undoing the screws. Then unscrew the bolt that supports the bottom of the outside handle you can access the thumb latch component. Take apart the latch and you will see a round plate that the thumb latch fits into either the right or left side of the metal plate is broken which is why the thumb latch is not working. You need to order a new part by calling this number 1-800-437-7448 m-f 8 to 5pm EST.

My son disengaged the latch while the door was open. Then he manually closed then opened the door. When I got home the door was half open and not latched. the trolley on the track was approx 3ft away

If the track is a screw thread, then just latch the door anywhere along the track, and it will realign itself.
If the track is a chain-drive... then push door up until it clicks into latch.

Garage wont open competely

There is a trip lever along the garage door track.
When door goes up, it trips the lever and turns off the opener.
The trip lever is adjustable. Loosen it and move back 1" or so.
If that is not far enough, move it back 1/2" more.

Thumb latch and component are in tact but it keeps slipping out

when you tighten the screws you have to be sure that the two sides stay aligned. try to tighten the screws a little at a time and keep testing the lever as you go. you will notice that there is a little play frome side to side or up down so it is critcal that you maintatin alignment untill the screws are tight.

My door knocker was dropped and the knocker broke off. I cannot even it back together,

If you're looking for Baldwin, they're here.
If you're interested in repairing it, try getting some pc7 epoxy from your local hardware store. (see here) It's pretty amazing stuff. I use it to repair bronze scupltures. Give it 24 hours before you try knocking on it. Still, that's pretty hard use, and it there's any way to drill a pin into it that might help the repair.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Garage door opener chain out of sync with door

There are two white screws on the sides that adjust the limits. Adjust the "down" screw less. You should have to turn the screw 4 full turns for eight inches. After you make this adjustment, test it without the door being hooked up to prevent damage to the door or opener if it tries to close too far.
