HIGHLY SUGGEST A DIFFERENT BRAND!!!!!!!
BTW- the problems were not gate related, as there was no binding on the gate and my 2 year old son can easily push the gate open and closed. The problems were electronic, I assume a glitchy board.
I never hesitate to update my reviews if new info would be useful. I also respond to questions/comments. My goal is to help real buyers with my honest, uncompensated opinions.
Instructions are really lacking for mounting to a concrete post, but a neighbor up the street had one mounted to a brick column and that really helped when I was mounting to the fence and column.
The kit has all the major parts, but is missing some hardware because of the many different mounting options.
It comes with only one remote, but I had 3 left over from my previous opener. I was easily able to set my old remotes to the new code.
Simple to install. Easy to adjust stops, timed closing and other remotes. Works perfect. If one month from now, I start experiencing the issues other people have, I'll adjust my review.
Obviously, it worked good enough on our first installation so that I did buy this model for our second gate
