It was a great convenience for my local Home Depot to have this part available and in stock. Especially during a cold weekend when my furnace broke down. Because my local store had this part it saved me a huge repair bill by having to call an outside repair man. Thanks Hanover, Pa Home Depot..

As you'd expect with any universal device it isn't exact for all applications. It isn't. I fit it into a Comfortmaker that the ignitor failed over the Thanksgiving weekend of all times (they always fail when everyone is closed). Sure it will work but the brackets weren't identical. I ended up having to drill a hole in one of the brackets to make it fit. Otherwise its fine. It works just like the other, which also was not the original. I can't give it an excellent until I see how long it lasts, 6 months? 2 years? No way of knowing. In a pinch the handyman can make it work. I'll recommend it for that. Long term? It is just a guess at this time.

Woke up Sunday morning to a 58-degree house. Phoned two other "big" hardware-type stores. Neither of them carried anything like this, so I was ecstatic when I called local HD and was informed they had these in stock -- on clearance no less! Sent kid down to pick up two, installed in about 15 minutes, and BINGO -- heat! Just hope for the sake of the next schmuck who needs one of these, that HD continues to stock (or something equivalent).

My furnace flame would not stay on for more than a minute. I found this in my local HD and was skeptical about "universal" but after matching the correct bracket from the 6 included brackets I easily installed this device. Turned the furnace on and held my breath. Lo and behold, the thing actually works quite well. I may go back to buy another one to have as a spare.

Used this product and my furnace fired up on the first try. The instructions aren't great, since they recommended a different mount (A) than the one that actually fit (C), but that's not a big deal. Saved money and a cold Sunday night by doing this myself instead of waiting for a repairman.
