Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick Sturdy and easy to install
This would have received 5 starts but the installation instructions show using the larger bolts at 3 locations. The problem is they only give you 1 large bolt for each side. But other than that it went in easy and works great

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homerowner Simple and time saving
Nice kit. Saves time cutting the angle stock. Comes with all required hardware including lags for mounting. Certainly strong enough for most consumer type doors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2137 Great Support
I got this product because the spring on my garage door snapped and it bent the old support. I was very glad to get it at the price I paid for it and it replaced the old support great. Installed in no time and I have to say that it should last for the life of the garage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NetWorker Good set of simple support brackets
I used this kit as a sturdier alternative to the two, quite thinner metal brackets that came packaged as mounts for my garage door opener. Hardware was compatible, installation simple & straightforward as well. I feel much more comfortable with this solution, although this is not the intended application for this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RLHarvey Everything I needed in one package!
I went to Home Depot to get the materials to make the rear garage door supports (the new garage door didn't come with any). After getting the individual materials I needed I stopped off at the garage door section and found that they had this kit with everything, and for less! This kit provided everything I needed to get my new garage door up and running!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Kit needed with Clopay Garage Door
Found that this kit is needed, generally, for the installation of a Clopay Value Garage Door I purchased at H.D. The kit includes all the hardware & brackets needed to hang the rear of the garage door tracks. One note ... they suggest purchasing 3" Lag bolts IF your ceiling has drywall. I also opted to cut/shorten the vertical 20" bracket by about 6" since that was just metal hanging down unused. The instructions are fairly good. The instructions shown online (in PDF form) differ slightly from those included in the kit. The kit also makes reference to installing 3 lag bolts thru each of the horizontal brackets into 3 joists. The problem I notice is the horizontal bracket is about 28" long & most joists are about 24" on center so I was only able to get 2 bolts into the ceiling per hanger. Feels solid!
Would have been nice if this kit was included with the garage door but I understand that those wishing to update their garage or replace an existing garage door would, most likely, not need this kit. Saves from having to source, cut & buy all the hardware & fasteners separately.
