Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Easy to Install
Easy to install but would have liked it better if if would have fit the original brackets better. New brackets were to flimsy and didn't fit the sensors well. Also slightly pricey.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lindy Worked on my 1993 Craftsman model just fine!
My old 1993 garage system was installed when the house was built. It's an old '93 Craftsman 1/2 HP with the original safety sensors. Just this past week, our garage would open but wouldn't close without holding down the main control. At first I thought it was the remotes, but when my 'homelink' didn't work either in my car, I knew it was something else. After researching and youtubing, I learned it was our safety sensors. Our receiver unit was lit green, but the other one was blank (no light). I found these on HomeDepot, but it said it was not compatible for my model since it was a '93. I read the questions and reviews and noticed a couple others had tried it on their older models, so why not give it a shot.
So today, I purchased them at Home Depot and saw that the wires were identical to my existing sensors. I cut out the old sensors and mounting brackets out and spliced the wires together and what do you know. It works like new! At first, I wasn't a fan of the mounting hardware that is included, but it was actually pretty simple to mount to the rails. Got everything lined up, and works better than my old sensors! Very happy customer! I highly recommend these if you need new ones. And don't be afraid if you have an older model. Just look at the wiring and make sure you connect it correctly!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sam Sensors fit fine
Installed these on a 1994 Craftsman opener and door.
They fit just fine in the original brackets.
Only took about 20 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Easy replacement install
Purchased to replace failing door sensor. Very easy installation with clip on brackets for sensors and crimp wire connectors. It took longer to remove the old sensors than to install the new ones. Work perfectly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tec Work fine with Craftman model: 139.53479SRT. Date:07/1995
I bought this set to try replacing my Craftsman sensors that failed in a cold night. Online or Sears order will take days. Only HomeDepot is still open late so I went and grabbed one. Come with wires, clips.
Took me 15' to replace using the existing brackets and it worked fine even thought manual and someone stated it doesn't work with '95 model or earlier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CP Impossible to line up sensors so can't get it to work
Easy to install but cannot get to work at all. Sensors both light up but it is impossible to know if beams are aligned because there is no feedback and instructions are lacking. Doesn't work. Frustrating time trying to adjust for over an hour and still doesn't work. Lame.
