Customer Questions & Answers

will this model work on an 8 foot high door?

It is a replacement with the rail and chain already in place.
Asked by: windy
Yes, this will work on an 8 foot high door - just be sure the counterweight spring is correctly set to assist in the lift (when the door is three feet open and the opener is disengaged the door will not move from it's own weight)

Is the Chainlink 1/2 HP model a good replacement for an Overhead 1/3 HP Legacy model?

My Overhead Legacy garage door opener does not operate correctly during cold weather. It takes about 3 minutes to get the door down. I've spoken with the Overhead personnel and they stated tthat there are no replacement parts for this model since it is about 17 years old. Just wanted to make sure the additional HP would not cause a problem with the rail, chain or the door. My door dimesions are 7" x 18". Thanks for your reply.

ChainLift 1/2 HP Chain Drive Garage Door Opener is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a choice of other openers and models. This one by far was a great choice in spite of not having any reviews. I was so surprised of how easy installation was this being my first garage opener install. the instructions were simple to follow. I was replacing an old Stanley. I was able to use existing hardware(brackets) with a few tweaks alone. It is extremely quiet and smooth and easy to program the adjustments and remotes. Oh and I was also able to program my 2004 and 2008 Acura's in car link with ease great buy. quality time will tell purchased may,27,2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Door Opener I was actually replacing an old unit where the circuit board was malfunctioning. It was only a few more dollars to get a new unit. Unit arrived UPS earlier that expected. Unit mounted very similarly to the old unit. Unit was simple to program and operates much quieter than the old unit. It is even quieter than the screw drive on the other door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This is a great buy. My husband found the receipt for our old garage opener and this was only $10 more and the old one lasted over 20 years. We used Home Depot to install it. He was great and went beyond to make sure it worked properly. He came on time and made sure I was happy with the install. It has two remotes and our old one only had one. Thanks to Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Direct Replacement I purchased this unit because the Overhead Door opener that was installed with my garage door had failed after 4 years and the price of replacing just the electronics board was 3/4 the price of this complete opener. While everything was in the box, nicely packaged, ready to install, the motor drive/electronics was a direct replacement for my failed unit and four bolts/six wires later I was in business. I expect this to have about the same failure rate as my original (since they are simply rebranded), but the price was right for the expected life span and ease of replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chain lift garage opener This garage door opener is very quiet and so far works very good. Make sure to get angle iron and straps before you start. They do not come with the opener. Recommend 2 people as the motor end is very heavy. Runs slower than most I have seen but that is fine as it is also quieter. I also bought a wall mount wireless remote so I would not have to carry the remote with me.
