Got this in an email today. Just a heads up for everybody.

Please look at your garage door

After our home inspection the inspector noted that our garage door had a dent in it. Finally figured out someone tried to break in. Then I searched youtube 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.

Glad they posted a how-to video! Last time they just drove there truck into my garage door and slammed into my beloved 72 chevy, causing it to come into the house. At least the new way is less destructive!

Would be a lot harder if they didn't have a window in the door to see where they were moving that wire. Still certainly doable...but not as easy.

good observation on the window. I reckon they'd just bypass garages with no window.
