Retrofit Garage Door Opener with Safety Reverse

Recommended Posts

I agree with Tom. I recently learned my lesson when one of our guys said a retrofit was recommended. I found out you can't retrofit them. My silver tongue and sly good looks got me out of that mess!!

Been there - done that!

Now it is:

"No optical sensors were installed on the garage door opener system to automatically open the door if the beam were interrupted. They weren't required until 1993. For safety, I recommend an upgrade to the garage door opener system by installing a new opener with the optical sensors, as it is my understanding that you can't just add optical sensors to an older opener."
