Garage Security
« on: March 06, 2014, 10:37:28 AM »
I was sent this info and since most of us probably store our bikes in our garages, it is good info to have. I know I have eyelets screwed into the wall and a cable running through my bikes in my garage. 

The following are videos on how to break into a garage and how to deter thieves that may try it. Watch both.

nice post also having windows in your garage door is not a good idea.

I think I will invest a couple of DINO zip ties for this purpose...

I rigged mine with a shotgun pointing at the spot a person would be standing.  Hope they don't pull the wrong trigger!  lol  Just kidding, I did add a zip tie to mine even though it would be almost impossible to do mine anyway.  My garage door is 10' tall, I had a lifted truck when I built our house so I built the garage so I could still park my truck inside.  Most garage doors are 7' tall and are easy for someone to stand outside and get the wire through, you would have to use a ladder or stand in the back of a truck on mine.
