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 300mhz (megahertz).
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 10 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.

After trying 2 other universal remotes [I won't mention the brand], I was ready to give in and buy the significantly more expensive remote sold by the gate company. In a last ditch attempt, I did some research online and was led to the 3089.
It arrived promptly and I didn't expect much since the design is so understated. It does feel durable though so I'll give it that.
After programming it, I was surprised to see that it worked FIRST TIME. After the fiasco with the other universal remotes I purchased, this was a welcome reversal of fortunes.
I don't hesitate recommending this remote to anyone who wants a remote that just works.
All prices are in USD.
