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).
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.
OneTIPsy Chick: How a zip tie could prevent your garage door from being broken into!
ArtOfBaccarat: Great! Now they will know to bring a cutter to cut the zip tie or wires.
Maybe tinting the windows might help.
DONGOE: Hey thieves, come into my house - my dog is hungry.
Benjamin Moore Eubank: "We're not going to show you how but here's how they do it"
Milosz Ostrow: This problem is caused by shoddy design. I have an old, obsolete Stanley
garage door opener that requires a vertical pull on the cord to release the
carriage. Pulling the emergency release latch cord horizontally with a
coat hanger or similar wire won't get a burglar anywhere, and there is so
little of the linkage exposed at the bottom of the carriage, it would be
impossible to engage it with a wire hook.
Jeff Lebowski: Statistically this way of entry is rare, thieves are more likely to break a
window to gain entry. They also use universal remotes and drive down
streets until a door opens. If you have a solid wood door or one without
windows you don't have to worry about a thief using a coat hanger. Besides
most garage door releases don't have a hole to thread a zip tie(mine
doesn't), if your opener doesn't have a hole then remove the plastic handle
on the cord.
Mouse Toad: They said they would not show us how to break in...then they show us enough
we can break in!
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.
Steph Burlew: Have a 9 Mm in your hand
Judy Z: Thought they weren't going to show how to do it? Good to know but seems to
me they tell too much and now more thieves know how to get into your house.
I try and tell people not to leave the door to the house unlocked but they
do anyway. Too lazy to unlock their door, so thieves gain easy access.
Jaime Gonzalez: With burglary up in many states and in my own neighborhood, this is a must
Jeremiah Taylor: There's been a rash of Garage break-ins in Chicago, here's how to prevent
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.
Paschal1963S.C.L.: In case of fire . . . just hope you don't have to get out the garage door.
Mouse Toad: Lock and deadbolt the door between the house and the garage. It will slow
them down a little.
Jennifer Tharp: A zip tie can be a fire hazard.
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
Doorguru: The type of latch shown at the end doesn't need a ty-wrap.. just take the
Chirag Chaudhari: Mighty Zip Tie saved the day again!
Zip it now! Cause this video also teaches you how to break in !!!
Kevin Lang: So... any of you kids who weren't going this... now you know how! Go rob!
john smith: $5 remedy?? You're paying too much for zipties! great idea tho
zoochase: Pretty pathetic that the deputy admits they don't do a thorough search for
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
Uncle Willie: If you leave the rope then the thief can just pull it outside and break the
zip tie. shorten it or remove it.
James Worley: You didn't exactly show them how BUT you gave them ENOUGH information that
they can figure it OUT!!
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.

show. Very good to know and to protect against!
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.
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.
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.
joe linane: CHECK IT OUT
steve morgan: You can open any door with a universal remote, in about 2 sec, wire hanger
waist of time.
Bill M: then what good is the manual open feature. crap
Kimberly Porch: You gotta be able to see inside to make this happen

Patti Pierucci Johnson: Yeah, you just showed the crooks how to do it, thanks a lot you fools.
D. Dogperson: Really??? You're not going to show us how, but here's how it's done?????
