Matalonco Garage Doors: Protect your house from burglars who use your garage door as a weak spot!
Diana Ramlal: Thought i'd send it to you....
Jack Levy: Protect your house from burglars who use your garage door as a weak spot!
Jaime Gonzalez: With burglary up in many states and in my own neighborhood, this is a must
Jennifer Tharp: A zip tie can be a fire hazard.
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.
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.
Alyssa Lenore: Crazy huh......
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.
altadutch: When I go on vacation I lock the door(s) to its track with a bolt and also
have the door going into the house locked with deadbolt.
DONGOE: Hey thieves, come into my house - my dog is hungry.
Dennis Berry: lol "We're not going to show you how." *Proceeds to show how
Mouse Toad: Lock and deadbolt the door between the house and the garage. It will slow
them down a little.
Doorguru: The type of latch shown at the end doesn't need a ty-wrap.. just take the
Duh Enlightened One: A better solution is to take the bus so that you don't need a car so that
you don't need a garage so that you don't need a garage door.
enoch tanchak: First off please beware there is a UL & federal law that requires the
emergency release have no more the 50lbs strength there's no way a zip tie
meets that if your putting a women whole body weight into break it. Also
note in the video they never confirmed that's how people were getting into
homes just says burglars could use a coat hanger that is a big difference.
People please use common sense a zip tie is not worth the injury or death
in an emergency nor should any professional garage door company recommend
using one. This has been addressed in many garage door magazines and no
confirmed break in we're reported , once again these are just you tube fame
Nicholas Nakao: With burglary up in many states and in my own neighborhood, this is a must
Steph Burlew: Have a 9 Mm in your hand
Geoff Avery - State Farm Insurance Agent: Great idea to protect your home #insuranceventura
Mouse Toad: They said they would not show us how to break in...then they show us enough
we can break in!
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
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.
Josh Moser: Right at the beginning it shows how it's done; at 0:17 "We're not going to
show you how it's done".... Honestly, just use the locks on the side of
the door which goes into the rail and put a lock on those to prevent those
from being moved. Simple.
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.
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).
TheRanhughes: I'm sure a black person figured out how to use the coat hanger for the
purpose of breaking and entering.
ArtOfBaccarat: Great! Now they will know to bring a cutter to cut the zip tie or wires.
Maybe tinting the windows might help.
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
Benjamin Moore Eubank: "We're not going to show you how but here's how they do it"
OneTIPsy Chick: How a zip tie could prevent your garage door from being broken into!
NC Home Tracker - Melisa Edmonds: This has been happening in our area!
steve morgan: You can open any door with a universal remote, in about 2 sec, wire hanger
waist of time.
Frances H: why dont they improve the door?!
Roger N: Hmm... Decisions, decisions... Disable a safety feature or security. 0.o
CustomerComesFirst.ca: Protection from burglary....
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.
zoochase: Pretty pathetic that the deputy admits they don't do a thorough search for
Mark Harrington: Thanks for the detailed story. I went right out to Walmart and came back
with coat hangers & zip ties and with a little practice I can get into your
garage in less than a minute. Thanks again for your detailed story with
W COMSTOCK: Show how it's done... say "we're not going to show you how to break in...",
then show in detail repeatedly how it's done... gotta love talking heads.
Kevin Lang: What they meant when they said "we're not going to show you how to do it",
they meant to say "we aren't going to show you how to do this once, but
about 5 times from different angles"
Lee Ann Canaday: Arm yourself against thieves. I'm putting this segment on my weekly TV
show. Very good to know and to protect against!
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
AdventureWithGrandpa: Adventures with grandpa , old metal can adventure.
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
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.
Andrei Taran: we're not gonna show you how to do it, but heres a video of how to do it.
