Craftsman Garage Door Opener
Garage door openers are what power doors to open and close. They are usually located at the top of the garage door. A remote control or switches attached on the wall of the garage control the mechanism. The Craftsman garage door opener comes in two types: belt-driven and chain-driven.

Many homeowners favor the Craftsman chain-driven opener because it is very quiet and runs smoothly. The belt is made of steel-reinforced rubber, so the strength of the opener can be relied on not to obtain damage easily. This type of opener also employs the Motor Vibration Isolation System, which reduces vibration and movement in the opener, resulting in less noise. The door opener comes with a 200-watt bulb that automatically comes on and off when operating the door. This is an added convenience for owners so customers don’t have to go turn the light on or off in their garage. As soon as the door closes, the light comes off, and you are on your way.
On the other hand, a chain-driven door opener is operated by means of pulling and pushing the trolley on its track above the garage door. The chain is similar to what is seen in a bicycle, and it rotates around a sprocket when the motor is activated.
Craftsman door openers come with safety features such as the infrared laser at the bottom of the door. When someone or something crosses the beam, the door automatically stops until the obstruction is removed. Both opener types are durable and can last for years and years.
