I don't know but, I've had more missing garage door openers than I've ever had before!

Programming your cars to open the doors seems to be the culprit - everyone is doing that and then misplacing the garage door openers...or throwing them away!

Easy Answer - they put them in the locked mail-box, then they "lose" the mailbox keys!

We are seeing this too, and with most cars having buttons for this, they are mis-placed.

Some people forget the remotes are in their vehicles. Then again some people would lose their heads if it wasn't attached to their bodies. We charge deposits on remotes for landlords. Even ceiling fan remotes.

This has not been a frequent problem although eBay has always been a source for whatever brand or style you may seek and inexpensively too.

Haha, it is true, the funny thing is that there is a war for $20 garage opener cost. I usually go to nearby locksmith and get one.
