    Great tip, I never would have thought of that type of entry.
    Thanks for the post!

    I would definitely file a report. Worse comes to worse you have documentation of being harrassed multiple times and have a reason why you were ready and had to protect your home.

    Also, get a game cam. They are relatively cheep, you can use them for loads of other stuff, and it'll be that much better of a report when you file the break in.

    That was my first thought, but then I saw this video which shows the hanger latching onto the metal release lever rather than the rope:

    The pushing in the middle to reach the release rope can be stopped easy. Put a zip tie though the two holes in the latch then they can pull all day with no action.

    In the video by the original poster take note it shows the hanger being inserted into hole on the release lever. The Garage Shield wants you to believe this can be done in 6 seconds. I seriously doubt that being one has to do it blind. I understand they have to market their product. BTW the want $35.00 for what appears to be a piece of cardboard to prevent what they claim. Photos and Videos

    I did some research.

    * It depends on who's garage door opener you have

    * I took a pic of my own release lever (below -- white arrow shows where cord attaches which I previously removed)

    * Take note they have to get the coat hanger into the hole blind which if even possible it will take more than 6 seconds (I will be placing a bolt in the hole on mine just in case -- FYI: my lever has to pulled straight down to activate -- the one in the ad appears to have a "trigger" pull)

    * You can make your own garage shield for next to nothing by placing something across bar at red arrow in below pic

    Something to consider: being far out in the woods can increase the probability that the noise from a more-vigorous attack would go unnoticed. The idiot(s) doing the damage can't ignore that reality forever.

    Got my son on vegetation control duty today. At least it may deter someone if my neighbor can SEE my garage! Gonna try Crowman's advice about the guard. Maybe I can fashion something outta plastic that will prevent actuating that lever. Even if it were my door will not open the way I have it. Recently a camp right behind us was broken into. They suspect some kids that we took notice of. Apparently the "leader" of the pack used to live in a camp about 150 yds from here. So I really don't know who did this. Our convict and his brother are my first thought because of history. I need to rethink video approach. But I'm stumped. Gotta put it in a tree somehow.After sleeping on it I think I'll have a trooper stop by to show them this.

    Even if you can't put a real camera covering the garage door, stick a dummy dome up there. Heck even better if you put a real one in the tree that is camouflaged, let them mess with the fake one if they are so inclined.

    Fake camera domes are an inexpensive deterrent. Since I'm not at my NC house all the time, I stuck four up on the house and garage (heck, there weren't even locks on the windows when I bought the place). The county was up here while I was gone doing work on the sewer line. They were finishing their road repairs when I arrived. The foreman came up to me and wanted to express how sorry he was that one of his guys had taken a leak in my yard and had been caught on tape. He was telling me up front because he was worried I'd call it in and the man in question would be fired, and how much this guy needed to keep his job and so forth. I let him know that wasn't my purpose in installing my "cameras"...no worries.....
