You can shorten belt drives. Contact Chamberlain. They have a kit that is used to shorten the belt. Two feet is a lot. Keep in mind if you shorten the rail that much your door opening distance will be shortened by the same amount. Since this is made for 7' tall doors if you shorten the rail 2 feet your door will only open up to 5 feet.

how much weight can it lift?

Answers

A balanced door should only require 7 lbs of lifting force to open. Higher HP ratings offer longer life expectancy. If the door is balanced and gets frequent use then get an opener with a higher lifting force.

(What's this)
This is to replace my old opener. My door is 16’ x 8’ high so I also purchased the 8808CB-P 8’ rail and belt extension kit, THD Sku # 1001525386. I selected this opener because of all the features. Battery backup and belt drive were at the top of my list of must have for a opener. Belt drives are the way to go, they are so quite. With the battery backup I don’t have to get out in a rain storm or blizzard if the powers out to manually open the door, I live in Northeastern Ohio. The Automatic Door Lock requires its own wiring, so if you’re planning a new installation make sure you have that wire installed before they install drywall. I had to run a separate wire. I also like the Timer-to-Close feature that allow you to set the door to close from 1 minute to 99 minutes after it opens in case someone, my child, forgets to close after they come in. If you set up the MyQ for your smart phone you’ll know when the door is opened and closed and have it notify you if the door was left open for a specified time, then you can close it remotely from wherever you are. You can also can open it to remotely to let someone in, when family or friends are in town and get there before you get home. That way you don’t have to give out the code or set up a temporary one. The motor and belt have a life time warranty. My last home had belt drive and I never had any problems for 20+ years of use. I would highly recommend.

(What's this)
I had already bought and installed two of these Chamberlain Belt Drive openers over the past year, so when my one remaining old style chain drive opener failed I knew exactly what I wanted as a replacement. These openers are powerful yet whisper quiet, a nice change from the old ones that used to rattle the whole house when in use. Install of any opener isn't super easy (I've installed over 20 so I'm no rookie), but Chamberlain makes the process as simple as possible. The included step-by-step instructions are clear and logical, making installation doable for most homeowners. In appearance the units are very attractive. Reliability is also very good - my first one has been in heavy use for over a year without a hitch. The Wi-Fi connectivity allows for remote operation and monitoring through the MyQ app, and a remote keypad is included along with the usual openers. Of course, the openers can also be synched with most newer cars equipped with Homelink or one of the like systems, although the 2006 version on my Sequoia is too old to connect. Several things are not included, so be aware before you start the project - bulbs for the lights (2 are needed. Incandescent of not over 100w or compact fluorescent are recommended, although I've used 7.5w LEDs without any Wi-Fi connection issues), and angle iron to mount to the ceiling (side bracket material and bolts are provided). Everything else you need is in the kit. Overall, I highly recommend this product!

(What's this)
The Chamberlain 1 ¼ Equivalent HP Belt Drive Garage Opener is very innovative and extremely quiet. I replaced a 10 year old model with this unit in around 2 - 3 hours. The installation directions were very intuitive and easy to follow. My garage door is 8 feet tall so I was required to purchase and install an extension kit (Model #8808CP-P) in order to increase the travel length. The kit included one longer section of track and a longer belt to replace the original ones. Pros: • This unit operates extremely quietly • The battery backup is a nice feature, as even with a power outage it can be opened and closed • The wall touch pad displays temperature, time and diagnostics in addition to operating the door and lights (The lights can be configured where they turn on automatically when motion is detected) • Programming the travel is extremely easy • An additional dead bolt lock adds security when the door when closed • With the Wifi capability a smart phone can know the position of the door, open or close it, and receive alerts when the opener is operated from any location (note: the wifi is not available if the opener is operating on battery power) Cons: • The wifi setup took a couple of attempts in order to set up the communication correctly. The instructions seemed to say to disconnect the phone from the home wifi and connect to the unit’s wifi, which worked easily. But the next step said to connect to a web page, but my phone would never connect with the mobile network and access the page. I finally loaded the MyQ app on my phone first, and was able to get it connected and configured after uplugging the opener to reset the wifi learning a couple of times. Once set up it works well. Overall I am impressed with this opener and would definitely recommend it.

I like the entire line of Chamberlain garage door openers and accessories. This system does not disappoint. It was relatively easy to install, but I was alone, so there's always an extra challenge. Prior to this I had a chain drive opener, which worked great, but I couldn't resist the belt drive opener, for two reasons, foremost, it is super quiet and smooth operation. I also like the built in battery backup. A nice option living in Florida where power outages due to storms are common and can occur at any time. Everything worked right out of the box, keyless entry pad and both car remotes. The only one minor issue I had was with MyQ staying in sync when testing the battery backup. I pulled the power to the garage door (which immediately caused it to go offline). I pressed the wall button and the door opened perfectly on battery. Then I plugged the unit back in. When MyQ connected it still thought the door was closed, when in fact it was open (using the battery). I simply closed the door and MyQ was back in sync. That's minor compared to the ability to use the door during a power outage. I really like this system.

Customer review from Chamberlain-DIY.com logo
After having installed and used the B980 Garage Door Opener with garage door lock, I have tested the product for a few weeks now and find it to be very quiet! It does an excellent job raising and lowering our 10 ft insulated aluminum garage door. The installation was very straight forward, the instruction book has some great pictures. My only issue with the installation was that I couldn't find the template for the door lock mechanism. Was it supposed to be in with the door lock kit? No problem, though. I did some careful measuring and got the holes drilled fine. And the lock works as expected. This is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone needing a garage door opener that locks! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to review the B980 Garage Door Opener! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Customer review from Chamberlain-DIY.com logo
The unit was well packaged and arrived damage free. I was able to install the unit in a couple hours with just a few standard tools. Love the nice bright lighting that comes on with a motion sensor in the keypad. The smart phone app is handy with custom alerts that notify you if the door is left open and can even be set to notify you every time the door is opened or closed. The battery backup works like a charm when the power is out. Great range on the car remote, I am able to open the door from half way down the block. Overall love the unit!

The Chamberlain door opener is fine. The issue I have with this one is the Dead Bolt Lock. It failed after 2 days. Making a grinding noise when activated and will not lock or unlock. I called into the support/warranty line and first they could not identify the model number. Finally they told me they are shipping me a new lock. That was 2 or 3 weeks ago and I still do knot have the replacement. Not sure if I would even out it in now. After all this locked worked for 2 days and failed. And to get the garage door company out here to replace it will just end up costing me more money sense it was not there issue. So if you want a Chamberlain just get the one without the lock and save yourself some time and a headache.
