If you’re like me, you have a garage or workshop full of “stuff” and it is not irreplaceable, but it is not “stuff” you would enjoy replacing. Now of course all of us have detailed photos of all our tools and machinery to show the insurance company when it is gone. OK, that’ll be another story, for another time.
This is also for the people who have basement and standalone workshops that have garage type doors and therefore are susceptible to this kind of problem, garage burglary. Break in through the most vulnerable opening, the garage door. I have heard tales before about how the thieves break in, but this one is a new one to me.
It involves using a coat hanger to reach between the top of the garage door and the door frame and fishing around to catch either the rope or the latching lever that disconnects the garage door from the drive mechanism of the automatic garage door opener.
Take a look at my website and I have some ideas and a link to a video that is enlightening.
Thanks, be safe
