This isn't new but some of you may not have seen it.

There is more than one version of this video with various fixes for the problem.

I took the handle off of mine. My latch is much further back than the one in the video. I'll have another look at that. Thanks for posting.

I thought shortening the rope and removing the handle was a no brainer. Then zip tying the trigger.

All my stuff stays in an open machine shed. The dogs are loud though, and I try to do live fire exercises in the back yard on a regular basis. A reputation is a valuable thing.

I broke the top edge of my door a while ago and screwed a piece of 1/8 flat stock on top, the width of the door, to keep it from buckling. I think it would be easier to push the whole door in before that top edge bends. If it would bend, I guess they could get right in because I have the same setup.

I have a vice-grip..  The ones you would use for welding... It has 2 angled  jaw tips,, about 2" apart on both sides..  I clamp it over the roller,,on the channel.. No way will the garage door open..and simple to pop off and on..

 

  It reminds me of a bolt thru the channel,,,But much Quicker..

Everyone here knows I carry a pistol. Had one attempted theft. Dogs went nuts. Went out with the 12 gauge. Heard feet beat it across the road and into the barbed wire fence on the long horn pen, then over the fence and crash through the trees. Never had a problem again.

I have a problem with that being in Illinois.... it dont seem the lawmakers care about one protecting what is rightly theirs....

yeah we finally have concealed carry, but it seems they cant get qualified instructors to qualify people.... there are a couple of instructors that have "trained" classes but then been disqualified meaning those who went thru their classes have to go from square one...

Sounds about like Illinois. If you wait long enough for a FOID card you won't need a CC permit.
