Garage Door Opener Install

Manually opening and closing the garage door got old, so I bought a new Chamberlain LiftMaster 3265 model on ebay from SpringkingUSA.  It’s a 1/2 HP, chain drive motor attached to a one-piece 8″ t-rail.  It came with two 3-key remotes, multi-control panel, and a combo-key pad.  The primary feature folks should be looking for is the rolling code technology.

For my first install, it went smoother than I thought – it took me about 4 hours.  I credit YouTube for the preliminary installation tips, and the best factory instructions I’ve encountered in a long time.  I recommend reviewing several tips on garage door security at ITS Tactical, too.

    It is amazing how online resources like youtube can teach people how to get things done. It is a more productive way of sharing ideas.
