roll up door repair help

I have a roll up door that has a hand pulley system to lift and lower the door.

The chain popped off the 2 pulleys I tried putting the chain back on the pulleys but of course it's too tight to get on

So is there some sort of pulley release on these things so I can slide the pulley out put the chain on it and then slide it back and tighten it ?

Maybe get a split link and try that? You know,like a master link on a roller chain.

Check the entire length of the chain. A lot of times there is a link that isn't welded when the chain isn't used for weight. I've got couple chain falls like that and a shop I had years ago had a roll up door that had an unwelded link.

the chain was in good condition but the springs at the top of the door were broken and mismatched apparently which caused the door to be really heavy when lifting... now you can pull the chain with one hand and it lifts super easy
