There are a few big name companies that offer garage door openers such as Chamberlain and Genie, but what about Stanley? Theirs is a well known name, but do they make garage door openers?

Stanley Openers

The fact is that Stanley were once one of the market leaders in the field. However, due to more competition from large companies, in 1997 Stanley ended their involvement in residential garage door openers. They sold part of their business on to a company named Whistler, but they later went bust and Stanley openers were no more. The company do still produce commercial openers for businesses but they have long since ceased production of residential openers.

Back in the day Stanley were known to produce very high quality products at reasonable prices. The openers used worm gears which were very reliable and very rarely needed replacing. Unlike some other companies, the gears in their openers never seemed to need greasing, they would just keep running smoothly year after year. Their electronics always had a good reputation as well, they were not the most complex but this meant there was less to go wrong with them. Some other systems have problems with interference from other signals, Stanley never really seemed to have that problem. Due to this it is a real shame that such a good company was not able to keep manufacturing it’s openers. So what if you are one of the people who did manage to get their hands on a Stanley garage door opener?
