How to hang garage door opener motor when it isn't below the supports?

2 years ago

I'm installing a garage door opener, and the motor is positioned right between two supports. How can I properly support the motor? Can I just add some longer pieces of angle iron perpendicular with those supports, and then hand the motor from those? Should I instead add some 2x4s across the tops of those supports? What would work well?
