Has anyone seen this:
.

I went home and checked our garage door. We have an older wood garage door without windows. The emergency release mechanism is facing the opposite direction so I don’t think this would work on ours. Something to think about though.

Luckily, correcting the problem is an easy process too:


At the very least, it's worth considering keeping some kind of curtain in the garage door windows (if you have them) so that a perp wouldn't be able to see what he was doing. I'd prefer the other method of ensuring that it wouldn't be possible, period.

There dosen't need to be windows to do this. I have done it on wood and metal without windows. It's easy.....

I removed the pull-rope and put a Ty-wrap through the mechanism. If I have a power outage and I Have to open the garage door, I have a footstool and snips. To reduce temptation, I went to the crafts store and got a few tubes that have glass paint. Dab some clear on in a swirling pattern and you have all the light but it can't really be seen through.

Luckily, mine has an offset and cant be opened that way. You would have to go up and then in.
