    Hello! I am wanting to install an electric door opener/closer. I need it to be simple, and cheap.

    What do you guys use for your electric door?

    Include some pics if possible [​IMG]

    ever since ive got the electric door i never have to wake up early to let them out or get home to lock them in. the only problem is when its really humid the door will not slide down all the way but this only happens about once or twice a month so its not a big deal.
