Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sactomike 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by floridaguy 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rap60 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

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maintenanceguy 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixIt 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBinKY Does what it is supposed to do!
A little unsure when I bought this, but, lo and behold, it does exactly as its name implies - lubricates!
OK, all kidding aside, I use this a few times a year, and it helps cut down on a lot of the noise caused by the metal-on-metal contact of the screw drive mechanism that is transferred thru the drywall, into the ceiling joists, and ultimately into the house. I just started using a separate garage door silicone spray lubricant (also available at HD) on all the hinges, rollers, and springs in conjunction with this product on the screw drive, and the noise level is now minimal. Extremely quiet, almost to the point where I can't hear the garage door inside the house when it is opening.
An inexpensive maintenance item that anyone can do themselves.

It's the grease Genie recommends for their screw drive garage door openers. If there were a cheaper comparable product, I would use that.
