Unfortunately, garage break ins have been on the rise in the Denver Metro Area. Channel 7 recently investigated this alarming trend in an attempt to spread awareness and educate homeowners about this invasive crime. Channel 7 interviewed Keenan Gingrich from One Clear Choice to learn about preventative action and steps you can take to reduce the potential of a garage break in at your garage.
Information about how to break into a garage is easy to find. The most common and easy way, as discussed in the Channel 7 video, involves using a wire hanger to release the emergency lock. However there are steps you can take to add an extra layer of security to your garage door.
