Default remote opener ???

i remember way back in the day, there were issues with remote openers not closing all the way etc etc...

is this still an issue? id imagine not.

also, what openers do you all recommend? the HSW looks nice....

Depends on the bottle/manufacturer, if your talking motor opener style. Otherwise the solenoid style I've never liked as they sometimes wouldn't open at all

Yup, as JoeyGC5 said it depends on which bottle you have. The nice thing about our mechanical opener is that you can quickly take it on and off with two pull pins. This comes in handy when refilling or in case of an emergency and you need to quickly close the bottle. Any questions feel free to shoot me a PM. Thanks.

HSW here. Ive played with it about 10 times, open and closed all the way each time. Be sure to loosen the **** before you put the motor on.....

Dynotune and NX openers here.

Dynotune worked out of the box, no problems.

I had to change to a NX Valve for clearance on my floor (needed the 45 valve angle) so I went to the new style NX opener. Works great but I did have to play around with the clutch to get it to work right.

Here is the dynotune one, you can see the tight turn the Mainline does.

I have used the NX opener on many many many installs and I have sold hundreds of them if not more. No problems with theres... Since NX is the compamy that brought the design and idea to market I have installed everydesign they have had since they released it. The current design they have now is deffitly nice.. Everything perfects with time.. Cant go wrong with a NX opener!!
