Default Open garage door in 6 seconds

If you have an automatic garage door opener:

Got this from a friend, plus a solution.

The easy fix is a zip-tie so it can not be opened from the outside.

The purpose of the manual release is should you have a power failure and need to open your garage door, you pull the release. The zip-tie keeps it from being easy from the outside, but one snip of the zip-tie from the inside and it opens just like before.

Amazing what you find on the Internet. -

I will have to check our door. I actually had a neighbor who came over during a power failure to see if I could go pick her kid up at school. She said that she cound't get her car out of the garage because of the power failure. I went over there and showed her how to open the door.

Our garage is separate from the house- but- when going away for extended time, pull the breaker for the door opener, and with the door closed, snap a padlock thru a hole in the door track just above one of the rollers.

PULL THE BREAKER- because when you return you will be brain dead, and forget about the padlock.

It never even occurred to me.

That would be pretty hard to do if the door did not have a window in it.
