Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Very helpful in parking
The product works well, activating a bright, flashing red LED spot light (abut 1/4" in diameter) on the dashboard. It is activated by the garage door sensors and automatically turns off after 90 seconds. I purchased one for each car and they are easy to install and adjust.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OldDog60 Beam too small!
This laser pointer installs easily and looks good. The size of the laser beam is a pin point (literally) and very hard to see. If the beam was larger I would give it 5 stars. Don't waste your money....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GPS1950 Good Product - Be Aware Of Laser DOT Size
The Chamberlain Garage Parking Assist is a reliable product. It was easy to install and performs as described. The only issue I have with the product is the size of the projected laser "DOT" as it is very TINY and can be hard to see. Be aware that the laser "DOT" is a PULSATING STREAM and NOT A SOLID BEAM of light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gma Stop exactly where you want to
Easy to install until we tried to network it(for iPhone operation). After several messages exchanged with Chamberlain they referred us to Online directions that were different than the installation manual, and worked. Otherwise their"help" was pretty unhelpful. The product works fine. Just remember to check a wide" path for the marker, especially if multiple drivers use the vehicle as each may tend to enter more to the right or left.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 419err Works as advertised, but difficult to aim
I like this product and what it does. I have two complaints about it though. One is that it flashes rather than being a steady light. The second is that it its really difficult to 'fine tune' the aiming. I parked the car where I wanted it and tried to adjust this to hit the dashboard right above the steering wheel. I move it a little - it's on the seat. Move it back - it's on the hood. Move it again - it's on the seat again. I would really have liked a way to just move the aim by about 6 inches, but that just wasn't an option. I had to keep working with the massive adjustments until it came to within a few inches of where I wanted it, and then aI just called it good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrmcderm Bumper Saver
For a long time I would eyeball the parking position in my garage, and with tight spacing this meant tapping my work bench with my front bumper about half the time, out of paranoia of not having my rear bumper clear the garage door.
I thought about doing the whole 'hanging tennis ball' thing, but my car is so low to the ground, that my family and I would be constantly walking into the tennis ball when the car was not in the garage.
Then I learned about the parking laser. It shines a bright dot through my windshield onto my dash letting me know exactly how far forward I am, with the pleasant side effect of letting me know if I'm too far to the right (meaning the squeeze between my car and my wife's car will be tight) or too far to the left (meaning I'll be banging the trash cans with my door when I get out of the car).
The one I have wires directly into the same terminals on my garage door opener that my door safety eyes do, and the laser only comes on when I open and close the door which means I'm not eating up a valuable AC outlet with a wall wart or constantly shining a light down on the car or the garage floor.
It was a little tricky aiming the laser once I had it mounted on the ceiling - it takes a precise touch to get it right.
#protip: do not mount it above where your hood will be - when the car is parked right where you want it and you're trying to aim the laser, it's tricky to lean out over the car from the step ladder. I ended up remounting it about 18" back from where I had it so that I could put the step ladder right at the nose of the car and then reach the laser without leaning out over the car.

It takes a while to adjust it properly. The movement is not as flexible as I would like. The dot is very small. I had to put the car in the garage and then try and position the beam properly while on a ladder. Not very safe. It does help me position my car in the proper position.

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.
