Because the manufacture of Stanley garage door openers stopped in 2001, it is difficult to find useful reviews on the outdated product. This is because the age of any existing Stanley garage door openers, coupled with the scarcity of parts and lack of technical support from the manufacturer, may adversely affect the objectivity of the reviews.
The use of the Stanley trademark for the manufacture and distribution of garage doors, garage door openers and accessories was taken over by Innovative Home Products (IHP). However, IHP filed for bankruptcy in 2001. On the Stanley Black and Decker website, the company issued a statement saying that they no longer manufacture garage door openers and parts or offer services and product advice regarding the products.
