Sears sells RAIL EXTENDER KITS for most of thir GDO'S, mostly for residential applications. Go to www.SEARS.com, type GARAGE DOOR OPENERS in the SEARCH box. The first item that comes up is a 10 foot long GDO extension , item #00953727000, mfr model #53727.

    One more thing- the 10 foot long extension is for a 10 foot HIGH door. It comes with a new longer chain and cable to replace the original one. It does NOT add 10 feet to the length of the chain drive. Maybe you can contact Sears to see if you can put two or more extensions on the original rail, but they might not recommend it for safety reasons.

YOU MAY NEED TO GET THE SPRING ON THE DOOR ADJUSTED.

WHEN AN OPENER IS INSTALLED THE SPRING SHOULD BE SET A LITTLE HEAVY. YOU WANT THE DOOR TO SLOWLY DRIFT CLOSED IF LEFT HALFWAY UP.

IT SOUNDS LIKE EITHER YOUR SPRING NEEDS ADJUSTMENT OR THE DOOR BINDS AT THE BOTTOM - HOW DOES IT WORK MANUALLY??

IF YOU CAN'T CLOSE IT WITH 3 FINGERS THE OPENER WILL HAVE TROUBLE.

YES THE CRAFTSMAN RAIL IS WEAK MAKING IT THAT MUCH MORE CRITICAL TO SET THE HEIGHT PER INSTRUCTIONS AND MAKE SURE THE DOOR WORKS EASILY,

HOPE THIS HELPS
