Stanley 1050 is still sold online. This model of garage door opener is used to replace ones that are compatible with all Stanley operators built from the early '80s to the late '90s. It has the simplicity of one button, with the functionality of any modern garage door opener.
The Stanley 1050 usually replaces the lost or broken remotes form those garage doors. But isn't it nice to know that you don't have to replace the entire garage door opener system? I think it's really reassuring to be able to spend less than $20 and have a brand new Stanley 1050 instead of hundreds on a new garage door opener.
It might not be the latest and greatest of technology, but really the only difference is that it isn't compatible with SecureCode systems. That's okay, though, because very few people have this system installed in their homes nowadays. So you can rest assured that your home is just as safe as any other home in the neighborhood.
It's such a relief to not have to worry about dropping a heavy garage door on your foot again. I remember when I was a kid, my parents had a manually operated garage door. It was old, heavy and had chipping paint on it. It was difficult to open, and even more difficult to lock once it was closed. And I remember every time it was opened or closed I feared losing toes.
How relieving it must have been when the Allstar 9931T came along. I don't remember because I was too young at that point, but I know that I'll never have to worry about dropping that heavy door on my foot again.With receivers like the Allstar 831RE, it makes garage door openers a non-issue.
