    After 10+ years, the remote (model# 953T) for my 2005 model year Chamberlain garage door opener died. In need of a new one, I searched Amazon for a unit to replace my original. Unable to find anything that looked exactly like the unit I had, I ended up selecting this model which claimed to work with all Chamberlain garage door openers since 1993.

    Things got off to a rocky start as I struggled to remove the new opener from the clam shell packaging. Things got worse when I attempted to program the remote using the same method I had used to program the original. I pushed the purple “learn” button on my opener, held down the button on the new remote, and nothing happened. Frustrated, I unpacked the directions (I know, it’s my fault for not reading them first). This new remote has a button, labeled “PROG”, on the back underneath the metal clip. You have to press this button and then click the desired button on the front 1-3 times (depending on the color of your learn button) to setup the remote. Once this is done, you press the learn button on the opener and then the desired button on the remote and you’re all set. It’s pretty easy (if you read the directions). It took about 10 minutes to do the whole thing, although it would have been less than five if I had read the instructions first.

    Now that everything is programmed, it works exactly as it’s supposed to. The range is good and a quick press reliably triggers the door to open. I like that there’s an indicator light to indicate that it’s transmitting, this is something my previous model lacked and it made it harder to troubleshoot what was going on when it stopped working. The only thing I don’t like about the remote is that it’s very hard to open (not that I needed to, just being thorough here). I had to use a screwdriver to pry it open and it chewed up the plastic a little bit. Once open, I note that it takes the same CR2032 coin cell battery as my old remote (and several other electronics I have lying around). It’s a minor annoyance that will (hopefully) only be necessary a couple of times per decade.

    Overall I’m pretty satisfied. It reliably operates my Chamberlain opener and is easy to program (if you read the instructions).

    This worked with our Craftsman 1/2HP garage door opener without any issues. Programming was easy and I have no issues with range.

    I do want to share this very important info: DO NOT USE LED LIGHT BULBS IN YOUR GARAGE DOOR OPENER.
    *** UPDATE: As some of the feedback suggests, not all LED light bulbs causes interference. ***

    I was really getting frustrated because these remotes would not work unless I was a couple of feet away from the opener – I made sure I programmed them correctly so I really thought they were defective somehow. I was almost about to contact amazon to return these. However, before I did, I decided to troubleshoot online and found a youtube video that says LED light bulbs interfere with garage door openers – something to do with frequencies… but at this point, I was already heading to the garage to change out the light bulbs. The youtube video recommended using regular or CFL light bulbs – no more problems after that.

    I recently purchased this clicker for my 2004 LiftMaster Garage door opener. Once I found the directions for programming it, I had it working in 5 minutes.

    One thing I found though is that you have to click the button a certain number of times depending on the your garage door opener. I’ve attached a snippet of the manufacturer’s instructions so that you can figure it out faster than I did.
