Get better versatility with the 3-Function Garage Door Opener.
The Craftsman Visor Remote Control Garage Door Opener lets you control three different garage doors from the comfort of your car. The metallic hook slides onto the visor, and the slim, dark profile makes it easy to access when you need it, but easy to ignore when you don't. Designed to handle both billion and rolling code technologies, this remote is compatible with all Craftsman garage door openers built after 1993.
The 3-Function Garage Door Opener includes an LED light that lets you know when a signal has been sent to the garage door. The same LED also indicates whether the battery needs to be replaced. Ideal for multi-car garages, this opener controls doors from even greater distances. It also comes in handy if you've lost your older remote or you're in need of an upgrade.
- Craftsman Visor Remote Control Garage Door Opener opens garages from greater distances
- Operate up to three different Craftsman garage door openers
- LED light gives visible feedback that the signal has been sent, and also indicates when the battery requires changing
- Available for Gift Wrap

Beware that this product may not work with older models even though it says it does.
Here's the low down...
The battery ran out of my old craftsman garage remote ('98 model with a red Learn button on the back of the unit), and after replacing the battery for the remote that originally came with it, it seemed to recognize the unit because the light on the opener clicked as it said it would, but it would not open the garage door when the remote was pressed.
I then bought a non Sears brand universal remote at Home Depot and it didn't work even though it was supposed to be compatible with Craftsman. So I returned that and went to Sears and bought a replacement remote just like the one I had previously. Same as before, it seemed to program after the opener light clicked, but it wouldn't open the door.
I returned this remote and called the Sears tech people to ask which was the right remote for my unit. They said something about the government changing frequencies which is why the older remote model didn't work, and they gave me two model numbers they said would work with it. I bought one online (they didn't have them at the Sears store). When I got the remote and programmed it, it worked sporadically. I would press the button and the door would open, but when I pressed it again the door wouldn't shut, and vice versa. After pressing several times it proved to be a hit or miss proposition, opening/closing maybe once every 20 or so clicks but with no regularity.
So I returned this remote to Sears and bought this more expensive UNIVERSAL REMOTE that works with ALL sears craftsman garage door openers.. Yes, you guessed it. It didn't work either. I really don't believe the problem lies with the receiver on the garage door opener unit, since it worked perfectly before the remote battery went out. What a waste. Terribly frustrating!
We needed an extra remote garage door opener after we replaced the old opener with a new Craftsman model. It took a few tries to sync the remote to the opener, but it works fine.
After trading in our car that had a universal remote for opening garage doors I needed to buy one for our new car that didn't come with that option. Just clips on to the sun visor and it's convenient to take it with you if need to, can't do that with an opener that's built into a car. We have these in both of our new cars now.

We purchased a house with a newer Craftsman garage door opener and despite it being in the contract, the former owners never gave us the garage door openers. We have purchased two of these and they were very easy to sync up (per the instructions of the sales associate) and are working great!
I was excited when the salesperson said this should work with our door. We have always bought remotes for our Craftsman opener before and had no problem. Well, this was different and most likely our fault because neither the clerk or I read that it is for the more recent openers. Apparently our opener was manufactured before the timeframe that this covers. The funny thing that happened was, once programmed, our door would open at random times during the day, even when the car was nowhere near. It also disabled our wireless keypad function. So, just make sure to read the fine print before you make this purchase and if your garage door opener was manufactured in the time frame that it requires, it just might work for you.
Got this just as a 3rd opener for the family. Extremely easy to setup - just press the Learn button on your opener, then press the button on the remote that you want to use to open the door.
