Help Secure Your Garage Door With This Genius Zip Tie Hack
Thieves often target garages because they’re easy to access, but you can make it harder for them to get in there and steal your car or other valuable items with a simple zip tie.
According to a 2018 FBI report, burglaries occur every 25.7 seconds in the United States. The zip tie hack shared by TikToker @jmg8tor is an easy way to protect your possessions.
As @jmg8tor explained, thieves push a wire clothes hanger through the top of your garage door and use it to pull down the emergency release, which opens your garage door.
Simply attach a zip tie through both holes in the metal armature holding the emergency release cord to prevent thieves from pulling down the cord and getting into your garage.
