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!
Be prepared to buy additional new remotes if you buy a new craftsman garage door opener because your old remotes will not work, for whatever reason. In my view, this makes the craftsman door opener more costly than other manufacturers.
Our remote that came with the system ate all our batteries quickly, so we resorted to buying this new remote.. So far we are much happier with this one. Time will tell.

The old remote fell apart. I thought I would have to buy a new garage door opener. I stopped at Sears and explained my situation. The sales person showed me that I just needed to buy the new remote and program it. The new remote was surprisingly affordable and easy to program.
Super easy to sync with garage door mechanism. Came ready to go with fresh batteries. Works perfectly. Went back to Sear the next day and replaced our second opener, too.
I was In need in a garage door opener. My garage door is a craftsman so I got the opener to match. These oppeners are easy to program worth the buy
