Garage Door Openers...
How hard is it to install a garage door opener?

The electrical plug in is there, so I'd just need to find studs in the ceiling to screw in to and line it all up?

Anybody know where I can find some good video's on this?

Most garage door openers have a track which is made of several segments. My chain/cable assembly on a new Craftsman 3/4 HP opener was not long enough to assemble properly. SOLUTION: Have a buddy hold the motor end down firmly on the garage floor. Use a big hammer and gently tap the other end of the track to seat the segments. The track is now a few millimeters shorter and the chain can now be attached properly. Problem solved.
