great conversion for + system

fairly simply to install on existing opening. ours was an 80s or 90s craftsman opener. simply wire on with the others. it did make it a bit hard to fit on with the old button. the downside is that you have to use an outlet. since i didnt have one in a good place for the button, i had to keep the other one wired up.

it is nice now - both doors are on the same remotes!

should be easy to work with any opener, in spite of the fact that one of the "highly qualified" sears employess basically told me that they were lying about it being universal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The receiver and remotes works great.

Only recently the receiver of our rather elderly garage door opening system had died. We purchased this new 315 MHZ Craftsman Universal Receiver on 10/17/09. Since we had no electrical outlet near the garage door, my husband installed one. This job actually took the longest. Once we plugged the receiver into the newly installed outlet, we programmed it. Voila, it worked immediately. Each of the three black button remote controls we had also purchased needed to be programmed individually. They too functioned right away. Keep in mind that only the black button remote controls work with this receiver. The receiver packaging shows in front two paper stars: Blue and yellow. When purchasing the compatible remote control, make sure its packaging shows the same color stars. The instruction sheet seemed a bit confusing at first. It should be a bit more detailed with larger drawings. After reading the instructions several times, we got the "drift." - I only have three questions: Will the receiver and our three remotes have to be reprogrammed once the electricity goes out? Or does the receiver and remotes remember the original programming? Or what happens when sombody unplugs the receiver by mistake?

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works for me

I bought this reciever hoping to bring my new house's older craftman garage door opener into the 21st century. Unfortunatly the original remotes are long gone and are no longer avalible. I already had a spare Chamberlin 373LM three button opener from my previous house and was hoping they would be compatible as they are both on 315 MHz. As there is no outlet near the door to the house I decided to connect the new and old openers in parallel. Once the connections were made I followed the directions and had the reciever progremmed in a few seconds. The range is very good, I can reliably open the door several houses down the street. The only quibble I have with the reciever is that the wires and programming can only be performed by removing the front panel of the reciever. This is done by using a small screwdriver which can easily damage or break the plastic of the reciever is not done with great care. With the wires in place the panel also does not fit quite right. Still given the way it is installed up and out of the way in my system it is not a great problem for me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
