Got one of these last time,Makes an incredible difference when fitted no more breeze under the door or leaves getting in the garage!!
All Garage Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
In case anyone is wondering about compatibility - I replaced my ML850. The main box, rail/belt and header bracket all differed slightly needed swapping over for the newer version. It was not a straight swap, everything was slightly different, even down to the shorter length of the power lead (which has an EU plug on the amazon.de version). About as not a straight swap as it could get. I was able to reuse my canopy arm, and the safety beam sensors. The old remotes aren't compatible (I've yet to test the old numeric keypad but suspect nothing wireless form the old system will work with the rolling codes of the new model) and the wired panel probably could be reused, but has been replaced with a wireless version. I might try reusing the old wired panel inside the garage and using the wireless one mounted inside the house.
If in any doubt about whether you'd stick with your purchase, you might be better ordering at the higher price from Amazon UK rather than worrying about international returns. Once installed I'm confident you'd find it a reliable piece of kit, they're a good brand - I'm not worried about having to return it later on under warranty.
It took me a few hours to fit. You need to fit a bracket above your garage door, either on the wall or to a solid part of the ceiling, so if you have a metal lintel over it then that takes some effort to mount to. You also need to suspend the main part of the door opener machinery from the ceiling a few metres away from the door. This is the Chamberlain distributor's webpage and they have guidance on door types. http://www.easygates.co.uk/garage-door-types.asp If you have a "canopy" door then you need a canopy adaptor which is another £80 or so. I have a canopy door, but already own the adaptor - but because these door types are a little harder to move fully open, I went for the "Premium" opener rather than the lower powered "Comfort" model. I used to have a ML850 (850 Newtons) which just about managed to pull my canopy door up enough - I wouldn't want to trust a lower-powered 700N "Comfort" to do the job. Even if it managed it, the motor probably wouldn't live as long. The Premium has a 7 year motor guarantee and is 1000N. The Chamberlain technical support is very very good and they may be able to assist any enquiry. It's not ultra-easy installation in all scenarios, but should be OK for a competent DIYer. Much depends on whether you have ceiling joists in the right place, or are happy to improvise a bit tog et things lining up.
How easy are these to DIY? Also, can they fit on every type of door or only specific types?
Excellent. I have a Chamberlain ML 850 that I fitted 12 years ago, used daily and still going strong.
Obligatory warning that Wickes will never stop spamming you with texts and emails if you give them to them. They don't honour opt-out requests.
Probably if things are already on sale.
Just tried to apply it to some flooring (£380) and it says "We're sorry but your voucher code has not been applied.". The flooring is 40% off so wonder if that's why? The T&Cs don't seem to rule out sale items though?
Thanks Op (y)
I've got one it's excellent for changing suspension, springs etc Saved me more than a few scuffed knuckles (cheeky) Well worth £30 in my opinion
Have seen it, not as big as my clarke but less than 1/2price...
Where does the £52.37 come from OP? Proof or it's cold! ;)
Least you could have done was to vote me hot. Come onnnnnn
Fine for wheelnuts but if you're using on suspension or crankpulley kind of stuff then ime these Lidl ones just aren't upto the task. We've been using a cheapo Clarke similar to (might actually be) this for many years and not failed us yet. It depends what you expect from it so long as you have realistic expectations for £30. Depending on what you already have they do get in 18v cordless ones which I think they were £40 last time and not much different powerwise between them iirc. Or just get yourself a decent 1/2 breaker and some impact sockets. (strong)
Screwfix also offering a steel bow saw for £2.49 so you can test it yourself! https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/forge-steel-bow-saw-24-610mm-249-screwfix-2907385
Securing the dungeon.
On hand for what?
Also larger sizes, and some steal and brass ones. These are also on buy 5 save an additional 10%, so worth buying a variety of sizes to keep on hand
Hide yo' kids and hide yo' wives!
Good price thanks
Sorry if I'm being a bit thick... but where's the jump? EDIT: Just watched the video which shows you the jump, it's not eactly the Evel Knievel style jump I had in mind! :) It seems to get good reviews however and for the price I'm sure it will keep kids entertained.
A few cans still left at Tesco Frien Barnet on North Circular Road. Advertised as half price for £2.75 as per the image.
450ml in b and m for £1
Can confirm this for Tesco Bellshill too. On the shelf for £5.50 but scanning at £2.75. Nice find!
It is in Batley Tesco for a half price
Does anyone have a photo of the barcode please
You loose 1% in light and other internal losses. But electric heaters are generally known to be 100% efficient...... but I was covering off the smart arse who would mention the light and the wire resistance 😊
Do these need to be wired in please?
I'd say 100% efficent.
was £ 19,95 in my local homebase (Washington) but checked price and came up as £6.50, so bought two for my garage workshop, instant heat just for as long as I need it
Picked 2 up today. Looks like this is their normal price though but still useful to have in the garage
My friend has just been and managed to still get one so there may be additional stock
Grrrrr. (mad) (mad) (mad)
Bargain got ours for 37 on amazon just before Christmas and so pleased with it x
None left, saw a chap checking out with 3 (mad)
It’s a lot of plastic. You’ll need somewhere to put it.
Very nearly ordered then realised it doesn't have the table that usually comes with it, still excellent price if you don't want or need the table
Had my eye on this track since before Xmas. Heat added. Bargain price!
Dnt buy these iv got one in black, very bad quality and not sturdy at all!
The Mrs has the multicolour Draw Trolley for her crafting!! Nice, little and sturdy...... but we got them from Amazon for £19.99!!!!! (cheeky)
These things seem always overpriced to me for what they are, like the little plastic drawers for screws etc, but a deal's a deal I guess...
You’re welcome (y)
Picked up the 17 drawer version yesterday as for me the 17 drawer seemed to be better quality with bigger compartments. Loads of both in my local store. Thanks for the post OP
Get some life (y)
dang filled my existing component drawer and wanted another, OOS now :'( still heat tho , great price.
As I already said to some other keyboard warrior, apparently I had, but did not know about it since I used the "join with facebook" feature that gave no indication that I had previously done the same. Why would you think anyone would lie about something so pointless and benign? Why are you leaving rude comments to strangers on the internet who made an easy mistake?
24.99 in B&M at the moment. Great find
Paid £22 for this a little while ago and my son loves it! What a great price
Skit? Slot? Spot?
Suit ? soot ? shut ?
Bought for £127.50 around two years back when they had it on half price with an additional 15%.
£130 on halfords trade card so see if u can find someone with one 😊
Wow £142 cashback aswell so this item free
With the extra 15% off and TCB too it makes them quite well priced. The pricing does fluctuate all the time though and they are rarely ever not ‘half price’
They are always listed as half price in my Halfords. Along with all the other socket sets on 'offer'.
For me it is, as I haven't bought it at a cheaper price, nor can it currently be found cheaper..... Therfore to me and I'm guessing plenty of others it is a deal.... (highfive)
No I don't think it was this set.
I think they have put the price down for a day before, back at 34.99 currently on amazon
Aye it's been much cheaper than this.
Back in stock at toys r us for £119
Sorry All didn’t realise it was now OOS. I ordered at 6am for delivery!
Sorry first post
Out of stock
