I’ve been installing USAutomatic Patriots and RSL sliders since 1998. Never a problem with these. The only times my customers call me these days is when it’s time to change out a battery. I won’t touch another brand. In my opinion, these are the best operators out there. Thank you.

Had my gate openers for many years now. Had a battery problem last summer they helped me diagnose. Just had another problem battery related, that Matt spent an hour on the phone helping me diagnose and correct. Unbelievable customer service in this day and age. Highly recommend
