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!
I followed the advise of accolwell after trying on my own for a few frustrating minutes. If you do step away from the opener while programing the remote it does work. the instructions should tell you that but they don't. when I stepped away it worked just like it was supposed to .
We tried 2 of these as they were listed as the proper replacement remote control for my older garage door opener. Neither of them worked and they did not appear the same as the parts model in my original owner's manual.

I bought this one to replace the broken remote control for my garage door. It works well. It is also easy to link it to my garage door opener. I chose this one because it is exactly the same type as my original one, although I feel it is a little bulky. It will be better if it is small enough in case I need to put it in my pocket.
This worked for my 1994 garage door opener (green light and button on back of unit). Follow the directions carefully, or else it may not work right. You need to take the item out of the package to test it with your unit, as the remote has a programming button on the back that needs to be pressed so that it can start cycling through frequencies with button presses until your garage door light flashes. Works well, just expensive.

This garage door opener was easy to program and very easy to use. How much easier could it be than to touch a button and up goes your garage door. Wonderful and great price.
This garage door opener remote replaced a ten year old remote that kept draining the battery every time I would put I a new one. I am very happy to have a new door opener. If I need another one, I will definitely buy from Sears!
