    Have a Chamberlain LiftMaster Professional model 2280 with “Security+” (just marketing talk for the rolling changing code that all openers have had for 10+ yrs), and an orange learn button (we’ll come back to this) on the back of the unit under the rear translucent light bulb cover. The opener manual specifies a 976LM keypad for this unit. This keypad has a 9v battery, lights up, allows an additional temporary code to be set by # of openings or # of hours, and is grayish-cream in color. Two screws to mount the unit, with one mounting hole on the top outside of the keypad and the other behind the battery cover at bottom. Contrary to comments elsewhere: 1) you do not have to hold the buttons down longer to get them to “take” … I just punch ‘em in like any other keypad I’ve had over the years; 2) it does not take time to reset if you mistype … it just takes the last 4 digits you entered before pressing Send and reacts immediately if you enter a new set. Nice because you don’t have to close and re-open the cover or hit Send if you know you mistyped … just enter the last 4 digits correctly before hitting Send; 3) the buttons are the common “rubbery” ones on most all openers and they’re fine; and 4) you CAN set a temporary code. Now you’re going to love this … the Chamberlain website: a) doesn’t recognize a 2280 model # garage opener (I’m staring at it on the cover of the manual and it’s stamped on the opener); b) doesn’t say anything about a 976LM keypad; c) specifies the 940CB keypad if you have a red learning button, or a 940D if you have a purple learning button, or a 740CB for “older models” (which bringing up the instructions says applies to yellow, grey, green, or white learning button units); and d) … has no orange button recommendation! Unforgiveable. However, the instructions that actually come with the 976LM keypad clearly say it’s for units “with an orange learning button” … which is what I have … go figure. Keypads are all $40 on Chamberlain site, so $25 here is a good deal. In summary, simple to install (2 screws), simple to program (press & release the Learn button on your overhead opener, enter a 4 digit code on the keypad, and press & hold Enter on the keypad until your garage opener light blinks), and works fine … at least for us orange button people.

    This product does exactly what it is supposed to do. Installation is as simple as putting in 2 screws. Programming it takes about 30 seconds. 2 minor complaints I have 1. is that you have to enter the code to get it to close as well as open. 2. It would be nice to be able to assign a temporary code to give a service person or neighbor access while you are on vacation – not a big deal especially considering the great price.

    I bought this as an exact replacement for the original remote. After 9 years, the original remote was working sporadically at best. I would often need to enter the code several times before it worked, and felt the need to push the buttons extra hard as some other reviewers have mentioned (replacing the battery did not help.) The new remote solved all my problems and works perfectly, was well worth the $24.

    I used this remote for two years with another brand lifter and then replaced my lifter with a Chamberline model. All was well for about 6 months and then the remote stopped working. Tried everything but concluded that this model just couldn’t stand up to Georgia summers. Too bad.

    Same as Chamberline 976LM

    Works great just as expected. A word of caution. Liftmaster makes several remotes, typically distinguised by the color of the learn button. Do your research before you order. Make sure the remote matches your particular opener model. Unless you check there’s about a 1 in 4 chance you picked the right one. The supplier of my unit was great too. Answered my e-mail within hours. All-in-all, a great shopping experience
