Unfair
I purchased this product not because I wanted to but I had to. All of the garage door openers available only work on a 7 ft high door where as the standard door here in the South is 8 ft by 10 ft. So, in order to have one work, you must add 30-40% to the price of the opener. So, yes, I had to have the extension which does its intended job correctly. I'm just more bothered by that fact I had to purchase such an expensive extra in order to utilize my original purchase.

8 foot extension
Garages built after 1990s are all more than 8 feet. Sears should not sell somethng less than 7 feet and then tax additional $50 to sell a kit. It is like take it or leave it. I would not have bought it had I known earlier that it needed a kit to increase the height from 7 to 8 or to 9 feet. This is NOT fair. There is no disclosure on the box that it does not fit garages more than 7 feet. You will know only when the installer arrives and tells you that he cannot work with it unless you by a kit. He has to make a 2nd trip. Whos is at fault?

8 ft. extension

It was not as sturdy as I thought it should, it carries a lot of weight opening the garage door. I thought they had made improvements on the newer style but they did not.

works great

Purchased this item for my taller than normal garage door along with my new craftsman garage door opener. Works great. It is just a piece of metal really so it's kind of hard to screw up. Also comes with a longer chain.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

rail was to short

sears don't care to fix this problem the kit needs a extra center sec which if you buy the 10 ft kit you get then you got to cut it to make it work whit the 8 ft chain had the same thing go wrong with my 2 10 ft kits

8' extension for the Craftsman garage door opener 3.5 HP

I bought the garage door opener (works awesome) and then had to purchase the extension kit for my 8' garage doors. All works very well, very smooth. No issues, Installer gave the Craftsman a thumbs up.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

too expensive

I was forced to purchase this as i have a 8ft garage door. everything fit fine and was good quality, but 49.99 was way too much considering the whole unit was 149.00.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Glad I got it.

The box for the opener stated that the opener is for a 7 foot tall door. So I had to buy this since I have an 8 foot tall door.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Craftsman 8' extension didn't work

I bought the extension, the installer arrived and the piece in the box was virtually the same size as the one that it wanted us to replace. A waste of the day for the installer and he and I are baffled by the problem. If anyone has any suggestions as to why it didn't work, please let me know... I now have to return the two kits that I purchased.
