The Craftsman garage door opener model 53915 is a 1/2 HP belt drive garage door opener designed for long life and quiet, low maintenance operation.
Because belt drive models tend to be very quiet, they are a good choice for homes with living space above the garage. Noise dampending foam is added to the control unit chassis of this model, contributing to its quiet operation.
The Craftsman model 53915 has a steel reinforced belt, providing quiet lifting strength for heavy garage doors. This model comes well equipped with accessories, including the motion-detecting control panel that turns on your garage light when you enter the garage, two 3-button remote controls for your cars and a wireless, keyless entry system that is easily mounted outside the garage for secure entry without using your remote control.
The Craftsman garage door opener model 53915 is highly rated by consumers, with about 60% of reviews on the Sears garage door opener site giving this unit five out of five stars, and over 80% giving four or five out of five. Quiet operation and easy installation were two frequent comments from Sears reviewers, although Sears does offer installation service for a fee.
NOTE: If you have an 8 or 10 foot tall garage door, remember to buy the rail extension kit. Standard installation is for 7 foot tall doors. Without the rail extension kit your garage door will still open and close, but it won’t open completely.
