MrSundialGuy: Thanks for the detailed story. I went right out to Walmart, came back with
a zip tie and took care of this in less than a minute. Much appreciated.
Marco Paganini: PSA: How to thwart one of the most common ways of breaking into a house
through the garage. It takes 30 seconds to fix and costs basically nothing
(the cost of one zip-tie).
ArtOfBaccarat: Great! Now they will know to bring a cutter to cut the zip tie or wires.
Maybe tinting the windows might help.
OneTIPsy Chick: How a zip tie could prevent your garage door from being broken into!
DONGOE: Hey thieves, come into my house - my dog is hungry.
Marilyn Wilkie: Then again they could go to the back door of a garage that has glass in the
door and break that without worrying about being seen out front.
Steve Crawford: "We're not going to show you how it's done"
Here are plenty of clips where anyone with common sense can see exactly how
Kevin Lang: So... any of you kids who weren't going this... now you know how! Go rob!
Notengo Unnombre: Yep. I'll be fixing my garage today.
AdventureWithGrandpa: Adventures with grandpa , old metal can adventure.
Steph Burlew: Have a 9 Mm in your hand
Arnie Z: If there is a fire press the garage door opener button.
Nergo Pthycc: Zip tie? No problem. Instead of a flimsy coat hanger, use something
stronger, like hobby shop "music wire" duh... So just disable the whole
emergency pull thing by welding it; it's the ONLY safe way to prevent
Chirag Chaudhari: Mighty Zip Tie saved the day again!
Zip it now! Cause this video also teaches you how to break in !!!
john smith: $5 remedy?? You're paying too much for zipties! great idea tho
Chanasorn Boriratrit: I'm sorry, but I really can't tell if you all are just joking or simply
This video shows that garage can be dangerous, now what is your option?
1. Do something about it.
2. Post stupid comments below, do nothing, and let thieves who already know
how to do this break into your house.
3. Good luck being ignorant and not learn anything new ever.
4. Oh, and you can use this trick to get into your own garage in case you
lock yourself out and have no other options unless you prefer freezing to
death, etc. Your choice.
Judy Williams: Only problem with showing, is that it gives thieves more leverage and
Kevin Clark: Protect your House and Family from a Break in
James Worley: You didn't exactly show them how BUT you gave them ENOUGH information that
they can figure it OUT!!
Pamela Moore: The media tells every damn thing
angusmkaskill: I just leave my doors open
TanyA Fasanella: GOOD TO KNOW!
milkyway: Ive been a garage door tech for 18yrs, not once have I seen this happen to
any of my customers. Also if there are no windows in the door its not that
simple and takes way longer. Whatever you do, do not put a zip tie or
metal wire into the release mechanism, do not remove your rope either, as
in case of emergency you need anyone to be able to open the door release
easily including a child or a elderly person as they may be the only people
around at the time. Believe me when I tell you this that people have an
extreme amount of trouble releasing the door even when everything is
working properly, which is not a high stress situation like your cats
stuck under the door or worse your child. What this videos didn't show is
that they make a part that does allow you to release the opener however
doesn't let a coat hanger go around the release. After you read this go in
your garage and act like you need to get your door open, release it and
open it by hand as fast as possible as in an emergency situation then have
your kids and wife/husband do the same thing I guarantee it will give many
Bill M: then what good is the manual open feature. crap
Peter Trast: And now let the wave of break-ins begin. This tutorial should help many
criminally minded young men get a quick start to a life of crime.
lydmik: I thought the jackasses weren't going to show how to break into the
garage...what a bunch of b.s....now ANYONE can do it!
Jenifer Hodson: This is a must see to protect yourself and your family!
D. Dogperson: Really??? You're not going to show us how, but here's how it's done?????
What on earth are you thinking? Plus....thanks for telling the world
Walter Doernbach: That's not the only type of latch out there. Mine would be impossible to
release like that. Plus they need a window to look through to see where the
hanger is going, which there are no windows in my door.
Patti Pierucci Johnson: Yeah, you just showed the crooks how to do it, thanks a lot you fools.
Tod Tyler: I agree with garagedoorman....that safety release is put there for a
reason. I hope that TV station its willing to take the liability of
disabling a safety feature. Really you should look to mitigate the means of
getting a coat hanger into that slot....a block of wood would work just
fine or obscure the windows so the would-be thief can't see the release
Gary Brill: "$5 insurance policy"...even good stainless steel zipties are less than 50
cents/ea while something like Panduit nylon zip ties are mere pennies.
Donald Hook: You know thiefs and buglars have computers.
joe linane: CHECK IT OUT
John Gnazzo: No zip tie is going to prevent a thief from breaking the window and
reaching in and grabbing the release cord. Strong suggestion to NOT buy a
garage door with windows.
Kimberly Porch: You gotta be able to see inside to make this happen
Templar TG: EASY FIX, PREVENT A BREAK IN.
Sam Courtney: Great info - thanks for sharing this!

Longtall Sallymander: $5 for a zip tie? Now that's what I call burglary.
Jim McKay: 5 dollar zip tie? Wonder where she shops.
nick incantalupo: just put a latch on the inside of the doors when you are on vacation plus
alarm the doors in the garage and the house door in the garage plus the
tiewraps is not a bad idea
Wayne Hansen: #embracedebate
Roxana D: I dont have to worry about that, I live in 1 of the very few places left
where all doors can still be left unlocked including my garage doors and
there sit my Corvette and my wife's Mustang Cobra with their key in the
ignition, more often than not I forget to even close the doors.and the next
day discover they stood wide open the whole night.
