Customer Questions & Answers

Does it come with the rail set and chane assymbly

Very confusing information in product information which states easy rail installation, but does not show as a part in the parts list...
Asked by: Tractorman
Yes. It is shipped with all the parts you will need to complete the installation. Make sure you read and understand the instructions thoroughly and have a physically fit helper before beginning installation!

I have a worm drive now, can this chain drive one be used with it?

Asked by: Wolf
You can use this system to completely replace a chain drive system, but the individual components are not compatible.

Customer Reviews

1/2 HP Chain Drive Garage Door Opener is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far its working as designed We got two garage door openers for our new garage and the timing worked out for a good deal on the Deal of the Day. Came with two sets of remotes so we can use one in the house to open up ahead of time or close when we get in the house with an arm full of stuff. Got them both in the week-end the garage doors were installed on my own. Working fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straight forward installation, adjustment I used this opener on a sectional overhead garage door to replace another Chamberlain garage door opener that was more than 15 years old. (It was cheaper to replace the old unit than to have someone diagnose and repair a problem on the IC board.) Installation instructions were terse. The drawings in the instructions related much information (pay attention), but were adequate. Fortunately, the parts were engineered to be mostly idiot-proof, so installation went fairly smoothly. Though not mentioned in the instructions, routing the bell wires inside the trolley rail made the installation neater (used a fish tape for this). Trolley travel, and motor force adjustments were required after installation, but not complex and were easily achieved. Compared to the old unit this replaced, the new unit is lighter; finer guage wires, smaller components and lighter motor. But it does not appear to be any less sturdy in construction and works well. The remote works from a longer distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is excellent I bought this door closer to replace my old closer that was failing. It is great to install and is very quite when it opens in comparison to my last on that was twenty years old. I like the two closers and the internal opener with a button to push to leave light on if you are working in the garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was searching for. The garage door opener came with out delay and no damage . We have not had it installed yet. We think it was great value & that is what we expect fro Home Depot.
