Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Random1 Works great, can mount right on the opener.
This laser integrates nicely with a Chamberlain opener and functions great. Other reviews mention the laser not being bright enough, but that is not a problem in my garage. Maybe it's because all of our cars have black or dark gray dash boards.
Mounting and routing the wire was very easy as I was able to attach a small (3/4" round) super magnet to the bottom which allowed mounting of the laser to opener metal cover. See photos. This avoided having to run the wire along the ceiling and mounting the laser to the sheet rock. This may not work if you have a long vehicle that when parked is too far forward.
Chamberlain could add a laser to their openers that is built in with a nice clean look. This laser is a bit of a wart. I know some do not care about how things look in their garage, but some of us do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gin3 Excellent garage parking guide
Super easy to install. Super easy to adjust. This is a much better guide than the tire bump you stick on the floor. I've had that bump in the past and when temperature is high like in the summer, the adhesive comes loose and every time your tire hits it, the bump moves and eventually comes off. I have this laser pointer aimed at a specific spot on the dashboard and each time I park I have my SUV positioned where i can just close the garage door without verifying if the rear of the SUV is safely in without being hit with the garage door closing down.

Easy to locate and order on-line. Price very reasonable and installation instructions were clearly written and easy to follow. Only issue would be that it's hard to adjust precisely but is still functional and effective.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retail Great garage accessory
Very satisfied with this item, easy to install and small compact size. Works as described and makes parking in the exact same spot a cinch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Transplanted Good replacement for the tennis ball!
After installing a new Chamberlain garage door opener, I read that there's also a Laser Garage Parking Assist accessory I could purchase that would directly connect into my new opener.
The reviews were mostly favorable, so I decided to place my order through Home Depot.
Installation, and connections were bullet proof.
Some things I've discovered, and others I'd like to see are as follows:
Either upon the garage door opener lights coming on, or crossing the path of the garage door safety beam, the laser parking assist will come on. It stays on for one minute, then goes off until the previous actions happen again.
When aiming the laser beam, one minute is not enough time, as I found myself climbing the ladder several times...Then I discovered that if you block the garage door safety beams with something, this laser light will stay on until you remove whatever you used to block one of the beams.
This made the task of aiming the parking assist much easier.
I tend to agree with a few other reviews about the laser itself. First, it's not really bright enough, and second, the actual "dot" is really small.
I wish it were brighter, and more so, that the dot was larger. Unless you know where you've aimed the dot, and are looking for it...Or it's dark out, there's a good chance you may miss the flashing laser dot upon parking.
Overall, this sure beats the tennis ball on a string, but the two mentioned improvements would make this accessory really stand out.
Does what it's designed to do, worth the cost, and ease of installation is a smart buy.

Great concept. Really easy to set up. Will work as described. Universal application, not just Chamberlain or Sears.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by groth Not very Bright
The laser pointers for the garage door openers are under powered. Difficult to see in the day time and almost impossible to see if you drive in with sunglasses on. They work if you concentrate on seeing the laser on your dash. They should be a brighter laser. Easy to install and adjust. Overall my tennis ball on a string worked better.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2012 Not that great in day time
The laser is to dim... hard to see in day light, might return the product.
Quality is good.
