This looks like my remote, but how do I know if it's the right one?
1. Frequency: Check the back of your remote to make sure the frequency of the remote is 390mhz (megahertz) or says Liftmaster, Chamberlain, or Sears Craftsman. All of these use the same frequency of 390mhz.
2. Dip Switches: Open the battery compartment on your old garage door remote and look to see how many dip switches (tiny switches in a row) it has. If your old remote had 9 dip switches, then it's a match for this remote. If you don't have your old garage door remote, you can also look to see how many dip switches are on the back of your garage door opener (the overhead unit in your garage). The number of dip switches on the back of the opener is the same as on the remote.

I figured I wouldn't lose much if this Liftmaster 61LM didn't work since all I paid was less than $25 including shipping. I was pleasantly surprised that it was very easy to set-up. It works like a charm on a 1987 Liftmaster garage door opener.

I talked to the help desk because I wasn't 100% certain I had the correct remote. He assured me I did and I ordered two. They were super easy to set and I am very happy with the assistance and product.

My Sears garage door opener was built in 1984, and most of their remotes are for openers built from 1993 on up. I chatted online with a Sears person, and she insisted that the one she recommended would work. I had my doubts, but I foolishly ordered it. Well, it didn't work, so I had to return it to get my $50+ money back. The Click Away product worked just like it said it would, very easy to program, and the $20 was very reasonable. I'm glad I found Click Away....you helped me out immensely!

THIS REMOTE WORKED PERFECTLY. IT TOOK 30 SECONDS TO PUSH THE CONTROL AND SINK IT TO THE OPENER. I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED TWO BUT ONE WILL WORK FOR NOW.

I had a hard time finding a "universal" remote that would work with my 1987 era Craftsman Opener, even though they claimed to be correct for the opener. The "A Click Away" website matched my opener with the LiftMaster 61 LM.
After syncing with my opener, it worked the first time, and it was only $20. What can you get for $20 that gives that much back? Good job to A Click Away.

Ordered 2 replacement remotes for our garage door (installed in 1992). I had to match the dip switch positions to the positions on the existing remotes - worked like a charm. Literally, within 2 minutes of opening the delivered remotes, our problem was solved by matching the dip switch positions. Highly recommend oredering from this website - we had no issues at all. Delivery happened on time - as projected.

We have an old garage door remote but it was very easy to find the correct one. I had a little trouble getting it to work right away but customer service helped and it was very easy.

I bought one for a 1984 era Craftsman opener - and on a lark bought a second for an even older opener for which I had no model number. Both worked perfectly. Very easy to configure. Especially helpful Instructions for what to do when the old remote is multi-button.
