       Customer Testimonials
    I bought the opener to install on my one of my costumer's gates that we built for their home. I was a little paranoid when she and her 2 year old son came out and watched the whole setup process. But, to my surprise, this was the first opener I have installed and it took no time at all to get it fully operational. The manual was very easy and it just took a few steps to set it up. It is working great now.
    Thanks, Liftmaster and the people at Gate Crafters. You made my life easy with the ease of ordering and install.
