I've been using these remotes for 10 years. Two remotes were included with the opener, and I bought an extra remote for my third vehicle. One remote just stopped working after 10 years. So, two out of three are still working after 10 years. I would say that's a good deal!
The last remote stopped working after 3 years. The new one was way overpriced! and stopped working after 3 months. Unacceptable - especially with something that has the Craftsman name on it.
Makes finding my keys in the bottom of my purse much easier! No bulky remote in my way in the car anymore!
<p>I sometimes suspect some reviews are plants, but I am for real, and my two openers have done well, and the batteries have lasted over a year so far. My only problem is I lost one remote and have to get a replacement.</p>
<p>I have been trying to purchase this item for 3 weeks now and the process is broken. You cannot buy this item directly from the manufacturer however, Sears.com and local stores do not have them in stock. I called Sears.com only to be told they don't know why it is on sale because they do not have these in stock and they cannot be shipped to the store, but you can buy it from Sears Parts for $55+. What ever happened to good old fashion customer service with out gimmicks? I am sadly dispointed in Sears and Craftsman.</p>
Even though our garage door motor is a Sears and meets the requirements for this opener, it did not work, it would not change the setting code as instructed. This particular remote is identical to the one that came with our original door opener, it would not operate the door. Will be taking it back for a refund.
<p>This remote was very easy to set up thanks to the sales rep at Sears (I knew nothing about them). I purchased it to go on my motorcycle keychain and am looking forward to easy access to my garage!</p>
<p>The only reason the keychain Remote does not get five stars is that I would like to see it a little smaller. </p>
<p>Our house we bought is 12 years old. The Craftsman remote finally died. I thought it would be impossible to find a replacement part for an older product. Using Sears knowledge database it quickly zeroed me in on the right part for the right price. The remote worked perfectly after a simple "push a button" programming. Thank you Sears for being so customer oriented. </p>
