Product Description

1/2 HP Garage Door Opener Opens Only For You

Come home to a wonderful reception with this Craftsman Garage Door Opener with 3-Function Remote. This opener uses a powerful 1/2 HP motor to lift and close the lightest to the heaviest garage doors gently and safely. Your family or friends can have their own remote. The remote uses clever three-button remotes that can open your garage when you're still a long way off. If for any reason you lose your remote, you can still use the wireless pad to gain entry.

This crucial benefit comes courtesy of its superior code rolling system. You can go away on vacation and be confident that your garage will not open for anyone else but you. It is made of sturdy steel parts that will make it part of your home for a long time to come.

Great Buy, Good Features
I bought this opener after buying my new car and having a new baby and baby things to shlep around. It made things so much easier. It is a great buy for the money and has some excellent features. The security pad outside the garage door allows my 14yr old to come and go after school with out having a key to the house we have to worry about her loosing. The two remotes have allowed my husband to have one as well as my father in law. I was able to program the remote capabilities for my car with this opener as well. Its like having three remotes for the same opener! I wasn't so sure about buying a garage door opener with a chain drive. I have never bought an opener before and had just assumed that a belt drive would be quiter. They may be. However, I felt that a chain drive would probably last longer so that is the one I bought. I figured I would just deal with the noise. After having the opener professionally installed by Sears (they did a fabulous job and the guy really knew his stuff), I was very pleasantly surprised that the chain isnt loud at all. As a matter of fact, the thing that is making the noise is my metal garage door. The chain drive doesnt seem to be making noise at all! I would highly recomend this product. The price is great. The lighting feature, extra remotes and car programable ability, the key pad and the lock out capability are absolutely great. I use all of them.

only lasted 10 months
Opener quit working after 10 months and you have to pay for a service call to get warranty service which is about the same as a new opener.

Won't learn code for your car

Installed new one and the remote is now a 315 mHz frequency with rolling codes. My $75K car with the door code learn buttons built in isn't able to learn this new code. Great job Sears!?! Make your remotes non-compatible with all the luxury cars in the US. Next time try ******

Good deal of an opener

Always been pleased with Craftsman garage door openers. This one replaces my almost 15 year old Craftsman opener that finally gave up the ghost. While some improvements have been made, such as more secure remotes, the square tube rail and trolly that surrounds the tube rather than the T-shape track of the old one and the dual lights, I do wish that the tube was a bit stiffer and that the old remotes would work with it. Still, I'm pleased with the quality and value of the purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dependable & Durable

I purchased two of these to replace the home's original Overhead Door openers. The OD's were so old I couldn't program them to the new cars built-in remote. They installed easy, worked flawlessly and I have had not one problem with them. They are noisy, and that may be a negative for some, but not for me. I can hear when the doors open from my office over the garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
