Craftsman garage opener


How do I go about finding a remote control for our extremely old craftsman garage door opener ? I've been looking on ebay. Will any of the universals with dip switches work ? Dennis

I am sure if you get ahold of Sears they will have something you can use

They wanted 50 bucks for one, so I installed a keyed switch on the outside. I'd pay up to 20, but 50 is out of the question. I see many universals on ebay for 20 and less, but not sure if all dip switch remotes are the same. I saw one unit that would work. It came with a receiver that connects to the switch terminals, but required a 12 volt power supply. Basically a wireless momentary off on switch. It was like $19.00 with the shipping, but i'd rather try to find another dip switch remote for it if I can. I think theres 8 dip switches in the receiver. Dennis
