Customer Questions & Answers

Size of tube

How many ounces is the Genie garage door opener screw drive lubricant? Model # GLU-R, internet # 202808541.
Asked by: puff
Maybe one half ounce? Three tubes about the size of my little finger. Each tube is just enough to lube one screw drive. Hence, it is a three year supply. Too thick for the rollers in my opinion. There are sprays made specifically for rollers, but I think any silicone lubricant will do for those.

Can this be used on other than Genie openers.

Why is this product only available on-line?

Previously stores such as Home Depot stocked and sold this product. As Geni Lubricant is required for regular maintenance, requiring consumers to order on-line, (with inherent delays) and pay shipping charges is regrettable. Other lubricants do not work well on Geni screw-drive openers. Thanks, Paul L. Morton

Somewhere I read that this product came as a 3-Pack. Is the price quoted of $5.97 for the 3 pack or for each tube??

Universal Garage Door Opener Screw Drive Lubricant (3-Pack) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from only product that works great on garage door screw drive Why don't you stock product at store level......there are many owners of screw drive garage door systems. This product does not drip on surface top of parked car in garage. Simple to use. The heat from SW Florida does not affect lube....that is important to prevent drip on car roof or garage floor ....other products don't work as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Easy to apply and the result...smooth and quiet garage door operation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok lubricant for screwdrive openers After enduring much noise from one of my garage doors, I finally looked up what are the correct lubrication methods. Since it is a Genie screw type opener, this is the only product recommended (however note that people who are familiar with lubrication options make alternate suggestions on the web which are cheaper and maybe fine). I also used silicon spray on the door glides. This all helped substantially. However, I find when the weather gets colder, there is still some noise but not as bad as before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the trick! Just grease for the chain drive for garage door openers. It was the first time I had lubricated one, so I wanted to buy the recommended stuff. All the big box stores had was in spray cans....didn't seem right. This product included three little tubes--one did the trick, making our opener much quieter. We used one of the spray cans from HD for the wheels. I have enough grease for 2 more years in little sealed tubes. I think that this lubricant may just be white lithium grease. But what the heck, getting exactly what Genie recommends is only about $3 a year...way better than calling someone out. Very quiet door now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Product The screw drive mechanism on my garage door would make a grinding sound when I activated the door to open and close. I wiped down the entire length of the mechanism, and applied small beads of this Genie lubricant along the mechanism shaft, and Wow, it opens and closes smoothly and silently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff really works!!! I have used every lubricant known to man on my older Genie screw drive opener only to have it start squealing and squeaking days later. I finally broke down and ordered this (three tubes in one order) and applied one little tube to the screwdrive after removing all the older lubricants and WOW! QUIET, QUIET, QUIET and weeks later. I don't know what kind of magic they are using in this stuff but believe me it really works as advertised. And I have two more tubes for the next two years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only grease that works on my screw-drive opener This is the only grease that has worked on my screw-drive garage door opener. I tried white lithium grease and it sounded like the screw had no grease at all. The Genie grease is rather pricey but it works great, and I only use it once a year. Home Depot used to carry this product on the shelf, but now it is only on-line. I wish they would bring it back to the stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best way to keep your door opener operating reliable... Although this lubricant is somewhat expensive compared to other types of grease, this lubricant is formulated for the job of keeping your garage door opener running reliabley...
