I got this in my email today. I do not do chain letters, but I thought I'd pass this on as a Publice Service Announcement (PSA)...

Breaking into a garage in 6 seconds

Potential crooks will no doubt see this but I'll bet they already know it. Everyone with a garage door needs to take this simple precaution before the bad guys start using this now that this is out for the education of the general public. Phoenix Police Officers name was removed.

Technology is so wonderful; how to break into a home in less than 6 seconds with audio/visual aids!!

Please look at your garage door

After our home inspection the inspector noted that our garage door had a dent in it. We were in the garage last night talking about it and trying to figure out how it got a dent in it. Finally figured out someone tried to break in. Then I searched you tube and found the below video. Please watch it. I took the pull string off of ours and zip tied the lever up to the slider. Now you have to cut the zip tie in order to release the lever.

Please pass on.

Sorry about the dent. I just wanted to admire all those carboys you speak of.

Mine either. But it is pretty cool method to remember.

However, if anyone gets into the garage...my 9mm says they won't leave alive...

It's just as easy to walk around to the back of any house and throw a rock through a window.

Pretty loud esp. if you have double/triple glass.

I have bar locks on all my garage doors so no issue there. Also put a steel bar across the windows so you can't break a window and climb through.

About your best defense is an alarm.
