When did Roger have the bad ones? I think I got it about a year and a half ago from him. Mine turned gummy. Has anyone else had them turn gummy?

I really should look for a new one as the hatch wont open properly, it sticks.

The ones that turned gummy where the bad ones, and that was when he decided to have his own made instead of buying those again. He refunded most all that were sold so he lost $$ dealing with them.

I've only installed Rogers and one other style so I can't say which is best. Having installed Rog's a couple dozen times, I'm sold on it.

$27.98
So why not include those instructions with the part?

I bought one from Roger in May '09, worked fine when opening and closing manually, but the remote opener never worked despite hours spent adjusting everything. Last year the insert started to disintegrate, so I got another from Roger earlier in the year. I only got around to fitting it recently and it's Perfect!

Remote opening is 100% reliable, and I didn't have to adjust anything. Suggests that the recent inserts are much better than the earlier versions.
