Many garage door openers work for more than one door. Usually, the cheaper the model, the more universal its application, according to our electronic entry expert, Toby Bill. He has a collection of openers, plus a friend who can modify a unit into a fairly universial electronic master key.
“We can entertain ourselves by countermanding the legitimate use of openers by nasty neighbors, lowlifes, and other marks. Once, we had unusually good timing and managed to close a heavy double door in the middle of a Lincoln Continental our mark was backing out of his garage. Crunch! Other times, we open doors late at night in hopes vermin and varmits will infest the mark’s living area.”
