Louden also made an overhead garage door set.
An "E-Z Over Door Set" was found on a local garage.
The overhead door still operated properly, but the owner wanted an electric door-lifter, which could not be fitted to this door. In August, 2004, it was donated to the Jefferson County Historic Preservation Commission and placed in storage, pending a display location.
Louden brochures show this door hardware set, but the brochures are not dated. This "E-Z Over Door Set" was probably installed about 1940 for R. Bruce Louden, who lived in this house.
Pulleys were used to connect cables from wheels on the side of the door to a box which contained weights (or sand or rocks). The amount of weight in the box could be adjusted until it just balanced the weight of the door as it was opened.
