Product lines[edit]

  • Chamberlain - the company's do-it-yourself line of garage door openers.
  • LiftMaster - the company's line of garage door openers for professional installers.
  • Craftsman - re-branded Chamberlain models sold at Sears.
  • Clicker - a line of universal garage door remotes.

Chamberlain, LiftMaster, and Craftsman have interchangeable parts, primarily the gear and circuit boards. The greatest difference between the brands is that Chamberlain and Craftsman operate on a split-rail system, while LiftMaster consists of one single solid piece of rail.[1]
