Summary:

A full review of the CO-Z Automatic Sliding Gate Opener.

This article will present a full review of the CO-Z sliding gate opener along with customer reviews.

CO-Z automatic sliding gate opener is rated as being the best sliding gate opener for under 200$. This sturdy stainless-steel gate opener can open gates that weigh up to 1400 pounds and re up to 40 feet long. As you can see it packs enough power to sustain and support heavy duty gates.

This sliding gate opener also features an extremely convenient remote control that could easily open your gate at the maximum distance of 100 feet. And if you need an extra remote for your numerous family members and friends, the CO-Z offers a practical solution: the possibility of adding up to 23 extra remotes that can control this system.

It gets better

When it comes to safety, this system possesses two main safety systems. The first one is that the gate must be placed on level ground and cannot operate on an incline while the second one is the RF hopping code technology which stops the remote code from being accessed by other people. And if a power outage or an emergency, please do not panic, just use the manual release key.

With this gate opener you are guaranteed a rust-free performance thanks to the stainless-steel construction material. The chain is also protected from damage due to the protection lid, this also gives the gate smooth operation and it extends the service time.

There’s more

Another beauty of this gate opener is the auto-close option which allows you to set the gate to close 12 seconds, 24 seconds or 36 seconds after it is opened. So, you just press the open button and continue driving knowing that the gate will be safely closed.
