newmexrob99: This garage door had windows .. all the guy had to do was look at where the wire was.. i want to see that done on a solid door with no windows..
Rudy Hiebert: Wouldn't this be a hazard in an emergency? I've used a screw driver inserted into a hole on the track and unplug the opener when going on vacation. The risk is to forget that these procedures are in place, ie. the zip tie needs to be cut.
DukeLaCrosse20: I recommend booby trap the latch with a stick of tnt. Just remember to defuse it before you pull that thing yourself.
Elwyn Jones: A 3,000 volt wire across the top of the door would probably act as a reasonably good deterrent especially if they are intent on using wire, the only problem you may have is shovelling up the ashes.
Jose Cantu: So tell everybody so they can go break in
Jeremiah Puckett: I thought they weren't going to show us how. LOL. Umm. They did. Pretty faces with no brain except to read words.
Sam Herrington: Terrible fix. Does not prevent a thief. Prevents homeowner from easily disengaging the door in an emergency (door closed on a person or pet). Look into the shields that prevent the hanger from entering the garage.
Joselito Pancho: Thank you for the video.
Mike Trieu (MegasChara): Eh, the "protection" they outlined is bullcrap for anyone with half a brain cell thinking about the problem. If you can still open the emergency latch by tugging just slightly harder, criminals will just use a device that can pull that much harder, say a looped braided steel cable attached to that coat hanger. If you want real protection, thread one of those quick release braided steel keychain rings through that hole instead. It only takes a couple seconds longer to undo and it's much more immune to this attack.
Hiram Rosa Jr: They say they won't show you how then proceed to show you how and where to find the video 30 seconds later lol
xxxenricop: how does a zip tie cost 5$?!
thealize808: You can also add a additional alarm sensor on your garage door.
John Doe: Doesn't someone make some kind of meta shield to prevent the hanger trick? There surely must also be people who know how to wire the garage door to the alarm also. All you need is a switch for the alarm preferably one that is a open circuit so that if someone tries to cut the wires on the switch it will still go off as if the switch had been activated. If you are going to do that, get a silent alarm so the thieves don't get scared away before the police come. Set up a few cameras to catch the priceless look on the thieves faces when the police suddenly show up for extra fun hehehe!!!
Ricovette: Isn't the media wonderful! Only 10% of bad guys knew how to do this... Now, they all know... I feel so much safer now... What a joke! Stay safe... Rico
