Garage Door Safety Sensors for LiftMaster, Chamberlain, and Craftsman Openers

If your garage door sensors look like one of these, you have a garage door opener manufactured by The Chamberlain Group, maker of several of the biggest brands.

LiftMaster is the professional line, and the Chamberlain and Craftsman brands are carried in stores for homeowner purchase and installation.  They all use the same sensors.
