I want to replace the existing non-GFCI receptacle for my garage door opener with a GFCI receptacle. Our garage ceiling is quite low: the receptacle is 78" (6.5') above the floor. It's easy to reach (no ladder, no stretching), even when the car is in there. There is no receptacle upstream of this one or I'd just put the GFCI there with the GDO receptacle on its load. I would consider this readily accessible. Just wanted to check with the group first. Thanks.

Some might take exception to accessibility but I would say it is compliant.

NEC Article 100
Readily Accessible
Capable of being reached quickly for operation, renewal, or inspection without requiring those concerned to use a tool, to climb over, remove obstacle, or other.
