Great price, great product

Our opener went out and we immediately knew we had to go to Sears for their quality Craftsman products. Purchase went smoothly, unit was even on sale. Once we got home opened the package, verified parts and collected our tools, we started dismantling the old unit and installing the new one took us about an hour an a half and the unit was up and running! Mind you this was our first opener replacement task we have ever attempted. Thanks for a great product!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
