Can a Thief Break Into Your Garage Door?

Thieves have been inventing ways of breaking into garage doors; the most popular among their break-in techniques is the use of hangers. Thieves can find their way around the lock and break-in in a matter of seconds.

Indeed, safety is always essential. Once a thief successfully breaks your garage door, gaining access to other parts of your property won’t be an issue, especially in situations where the door leading to the house is unlocked.

Though the garage door is one of the entries for occupants of the house, it is also a point of entry for thieves; the reason being that some of the doors aren’t exactly safe. This is because homeowners pay less attention to the garage door by leaving it unlocked sometimes or not being proactive when it’s faulty. Recent statistic by the FBI identified the garage door as the primary point of entry by thieves in every 14 seconds.

How Thieves Break Into Your Garage Door

Thieves hack into your garage door through various methods, thus gaining access into your home. Making use of a hanger is the most popular of the break-in techniques employed by thieves.

In breaking into a garage, the top panel of the door is pushed slightly, thus creating a small opening at the top corner of the door. When this is done, the thief then pushes a hanger into the space created. The hanger is then hooked around the emergency release rope. In disconnecting the door from the opener, the emergency release rope is pulled. What is now left is lifting the door by hand.

Security Tips for Your Garage Door

  • Ensure that both the door that links the garage to the house and the garage security doors are reinforced. It’s of paramount importance that these doors have very strong hinges and are made of strong wood and reinforced steel. Attention should be paid to the front door as much as the garage door, or else it will be vulnerable to activities of thieves. Our team of professionals at Bob's Advance Garage Doors will get you all you need.
  • Motion detector lights should be installed. With the presence of these outdoor motion detection lights, the activities of thieves and burglars are reported. These lights can be regarded as a safeguard and a tool used to reduce the activities of thieves and burglars.
  • Install an alarm. Most homeowners are installing alarms in the main houses ignoring the garage. With the garage door being one of the main points of entry, installing an alarm system at such a location is also essential. 

Ensure that the garage door is always locked with a deadbolt.
