Usually, the first two digits of a serial number denote the factory that made it. For example, 01 denotes the Clopay plant in the town of Russia, Ohio. The model number is six digits long. It is either in the middle or at the end of the serial number, depending on the year the door was produced.

For Clopay doors built after 2004, the first six digits of the PID are the model number.

As always, if we can ever help you find what you need please contact us.

    My son bought a house with the above Clopay door. If it is posible to install a outside locking feature would you enclose the information for me? It currently will only lock from the insde with a lever by the side of the door.
    This is a single car garage door that is alluminium.

    Hi. My PID 00043000109000700.

    I’m trying to find the weight of the door to replace the springs.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Dave,

    Based on your PID number, it looks like you have a 4300 Clopay garage door. The PID number doesn’t tell me if you have any windows or struts, so I’m not sure the exact weight of your door.
    For that you can give Clopay customer service a call or use our door calculator to determine what springs you need for your door ( If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out at (800) 383-9548.
