In six seconds, a thief can break into your garage by using a wire coat hanger to reach the release mechanism on your garage door. And, in those six seconds, you have become a statistic. You have become one of the six-second break-ins that occur every fifteen seconds in the United States. The majority of these break-ins occur during the daytime while people are at work or school. The average loss to a homeowner is $2,000. To make matters worse, insurance companies have been known to deny claims in the cases where the burglar broke in using the 6 second break-in method. You can watch the video of such a break-in on YouTube.
There is a simple inhibitor that you can purchase called a Garage Shield, or Trolley Shield. This product blocks the release mechanism preventing a garage break-in. It is attached to your garage door connection arm or J-arm, and is compatible with all overhead garage doors that have the sectional configuration. It is impossible for a thief to control the release of the garage door because the path is blocked by the Trolley Shield. Your burglar will give up, and move on to some easier target in the neighborhood.
We can install the Shield in just a few short seconds. The Shield will not only protect your garage door, it will save you from becoming a break-in statistic. Call our experts at Precision Overhead Garage Doors at 216-663-8074.
