The LiftMaster 8500 Garage Door Opener from North Shore Commercial Door offers a multitude of features. This remote controlled garage door opener is more than a convenience — it enhances safety with remote entry.

It has a PowerLock deadbolt system that cannot be opened by force.

When you purchase your LiftMaster 8500 remote controlled garage door opener, you will have the durability, safety, and ease of use North Shore Commercial Door products are known for. Our Q&A section on the website will allow you to interact with our staff for any questions and to explain the difference between LiftMaster 3800 and 8500 remotes.

In order to install the 8500 on your door it must meet the following Size Requirements:
  • Uses a one-inch (1") torsion bar
  • Have four (4") to six (6") inch cable drums
  • Have maximum dimensions of fourteen feet tall (14') by eighteen feet wide (18')
  • Be 180 Square Feet or Under
  • Have a minimum Track Radius of 12 inches
  • Have a maximum weight of 650 Pounds (650 LBS.)
  • Have a minimum side clearance of eight inches (8")
  • Have a torsion bar that extends at least one to five inches past bracket
  • Be a standard lift with track radius between 12" to 32", Be a high lift, Follow the Pitch, or have quick turn brackets with a track radius of 12" or smaller
Please note the 3800/8500 will NOT work on the following types of doors:
  • Low Headroom Dual Track Doors: The 3800/8500 opens the door by cranking the torsion bar and pulling up the cables. Dual track doors open at the top of the door is pulled back towards the rear of the garage.
  • Low Headroom Doors Using Reverse Wound Drums: The 3800/8500 lifts the door by cranking the torsion bar and pulling up the cables. The cables will unwind as the torsion bar is cranked when the 3800/8500 is used with reverse wound drums.
  • Low Headroom Rear Mounted Spring Doors: The 3800/8500 cranks the torsion bar located over the top of the door and pulls up the cables to open the door. The torsion bar on a low headroom rear-mounted spring door is located near the end of the horizontal door track instead of over the top of the door. Also, due to the angle of the cables, the tension motor will not fit.
  • Doors Equipped with Wayne Dalton Torque Master Springs: Although this spring tube may look similar to a traditional torsion bar, the Wayne Dalton Torque Master Springs are self-contained within a spring tube that is much larger in diameter.
  • Full Vertical Doors: The 3800/8500 was not tested or approved for use on full vertical doors. Full vertical doors use a tapered drum that could potentially rip the cable tension monitor off the wall when matched with a 3800/8500. If a full vertical door is connected to 3800/8500, thrown cables and/or nuisance reversals may occur.
  • High Lift Doors with More Than 54" High Lift: The 3800/8500 should not be used with high lift doors with more than 54” high lift but are dependent on the drum diameter.
  • Rolling Doors (Roll Up): The 3800/8500 opens the door by cranking the torsion bar and pulling up the cables. Rolling doors do not use a torsion bar/cable system and instead, roll up into a barrel as they open and there are steel, sheet or grille type rolling doors. Rolling steel doors are made of steel slats that are hinged together. Rolling sheet doors are made of a long sheet of flexible material that wrap around a barrel. Rolling sheet doors can be made of plastic, cloth or metal. Rolling grilles are another option. These are most often seen in malls.

  • A power cord that measures six feet.
  • Quick-Connect terminals to install wires quickly and easily.
  • MyQ technology allowing you to turn on the garage and house lights remotely from your smartphone or computer.
