Liftmaster has the solution for helping you park in your garage ensuring that you don’t hit your garage door. This system is called Laser Garage Parking Assist. It is a system that you hook up in your garage that has a laser beam detector to tell you exactly where to park and when to stop.  This device is ideal for customers with tight fitting SUVs, small garages, and much more.

This system is a very easy install. There are no additional wires needed, as well as, no additional power needed. It connects to IR sensor wires for flexible installation. You can also install 2 per garage door opener in the event that you park two cars side by side- or even to use on two separate cars with separate doors.  We’ve even seen customers who use more than one on a vehicle, but one has proven to be sufficient.


How Does it Work?

Any time the garage door opener is activated, the red light shoots the infrared beam continuously.  Be careful, the laser will stop shining after a minute or so!  If you back up and re-adjust several times, be sure that you cross the safety sensor beam at the opening of the garage- as this will re-activate the red beam.

Installing a Ceiling Laser Park Assist is EASY!

In a nutshell, to install the Liftmaster laser parking assist, all you have to do is mount it to the ceiling and plug the two wires into the ports on your garage door opener.  As long as your garage door opener has infrared safety sensors (the little black boxes at the bottom of the garage opening), then your opener is compatible.

Positioning the Laser Beam

After mounting the Laser Garage Parking Assist, it’s simple to set up and adjust. It helps to have someone there to assist you.  Drive your vehicle into the garage and park in the location you want to park your vehicle each time you pull into your garage. Activate the parking assist locator by obstructing the path of the safety reversing sensors. The laser will emit a pulsing bright red beam. Using the swivel mount, you will aim the red beam to a location on the dash or hood that can easily be seen while seated in the driver’s seat of your vehicle. Just note that the laser will shut off automatically in one minute. If you are not finished adjusting the beam and it shuts off, simply obstruct the path of the safety reversing sensors again to re-activate the beam. Then sit in the driver’s seat and confirm that you can easily see the location of the red beam. This location is now your point of reference for parking your vehicle. These steps are very simple to do, and once you are finished you are ready to go!


Get Rid of That Old Tennis Ball!

The tennis ball on a string is so 1990!  They are extremely unreliable in how they roll across the windshield as you move, they break over time, and you’ll get tired of it hitting you in the face every time you go out to your garage when the garage doesn’t have a car in it!  The 975Lm Laser Garage Parking Assist is a handy tool for a person with a full garage and needs to know exactly where to park so that they don’t hit anything. You can pick one up at our show room located in Plano for $30.00 plus tax. We are open Monday through Friday 8-5:30 and 9-1 on Saturdays, just stop on by and see us!
