- Part 4: Heavy-Duty Garage Door Opener and Features
- Bob takes a look at a new Sears garage door opener, a 3/4 horsepower unit that's among the strongest on the market. The unit features a keypad that allows access if you need to get in the garage from the home's exterior without the remote control.
To meet safety requirements, the opener has an electric eye that reverses the door's downward motion if it senses an object (or small child!) in the way.
