Shield Your Overhead Garage Door Emergency Release Lever from Potential Burglars

In 2010 FBI crime clock statistics showed that a home was burglarized once every 14.6 seconds and that the most common way of gaining entrance was through front, back or garage doors. This statistic is pretty alarming to think about and it is this statistic that makes the SecureShield for garage doors from First Watch Security a must-have. If you have an overhead garage door it can take a burglar all of 6-seconds to unlatch the doors emergency release lever and manually open your garage (see video in “More Info”). This is where the SecureShield comes to the rescue. The SecureShield connects to the garage door connecting arm and covers, or shields, the emergency release lever from being tampered with. Owners will still have access to the emergency release but will need to be in the garage to do so, as intended. The SecureShiled is compatible with most motorized overhead garage doors and should take about 10 minutes or less to give you and your family peace-of-mind that you’ll be safe from garage break-ins.

    This is great! I watched a youtube video where a guy broke into a garage door with a coat hanger in under 3 minutes. He used it to snag the emergency release lever and easily gained entry into the garage. Since garages are one of the primary ways burglars gain entry into a house, this device should be a necessity for all garage door openers. Thanks for sharing this.

      I work for a company that installs garage doors in Columbia SC. We’ve seen studies that indicate burglars entering through garage doors account for as many as 40% of all non-forcible entry burglaries. I am going to recommend this product to our clients. Anything to help further secure a home!
