Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillIT Very good protection
Have you ever come home at night to a non-working garage door? Not fun. If you hire others to do work for you (in my case, a neighborhood high schooler mows my lawn), it is prudent to buy and install this product, which covers the safety sensors so they are less likely to be knocked out of alignment.
However, be advised that this attaches to the wall, not to the garage door tracks. Accordingly, in a modern home, you are likely to have to drill into concrete and place anchors to secure these covers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richard Just what I needed
Modified it slightly to fit a different brand sensor. Stopped the non opening problem .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Darr It lives up to its name
I would have given this product 5 stars had it not been for the modifications i had to do to it to get it to fit 100%. I did have to trim a few edges to get them straight due to the location of my sensors. I thought about moving the sensors up to get a better fit, but then they are mounted on plates that are attached to the rail, and moving them any higher would defeat the purpose. Would be nice if there were break-away tabs to get a better fitment, but it would be impossible to be able to forsee every possible install situation. Anyway, a pair of shears will be needed if you need to cut them or even a dremel tool, so you need to have some mechanical know how to get these attached and fitted 100% Once on though, they do their job! It solved my problem with the garbage cans and garden hose hitting the sensors. Also, they do look nice and i suppose you could paint them if necessary.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chrisd There are two!
There is nothing I saw in the write up that there were 2 sensor covers, and based on the price I assumed there was only one. Pleasant surprise and will be returning the extra one. While the sensors are a necessary evil, they are a pain if your garage space is tight (mine is), and people keep on knocking into them and setting off the alignment. These covers fit the bill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonathan A good idea, but it didn't fit
I had to return the product because it didn't fit my garage installation. It was a good idea, but it would have been better if it had fit my particular installation. Also, metal would have been a better material than plastic.

These are much bigger than I anticipated and I am now returning them.
