Tailwind has been designed to work with virtually all garage door openers old and new. If your door opener has a button mounted on your garage wall, and you have a safety mechanism that detects obstruction (typically this is an invisible beam of light across the door), it should work.
NOTE: If your garage door opener is a Chamberlain, Liftmaster, Craftsman, Raynor, or Marlin brand and has a round yellow learn button, or you have a Genie or Overhead Door opener that has a wall control like the one in the picture below, you need to contact us for instructions on how to make these openers work with Tailwind.
Additionally, please use our compatibility checker to look up your model of automatic opener as there are some models that may require some special wiring. If your model is not listed please submit a request and our support team will advise if Tailwind will work for you.
1. Use only with door openers manufactured after 1993.
2. Not for use with one-piece front swing garage doors or swinging gate doors.
