Why a zip tie is not enough to secure your garage door

It’s kind of crazy when you really sit down to think about it.

Homeowners will spend thousands of dollars to get a top quality security system installed in their homes, then spend hundreds of dollars each year to make sure that this security system is monitored in real time 24/7 – but will only use a zip tie to “lock up” their garage door to make sure that criminals cannot use one of the easiest entry points of them all to gain access to their homes.

We may be the smartest animals we know, but that doesn’t mean that we’re always the brightest of the bunch.

If you have gone along thinking that a zip tie was going to cut the mustard when it came to securing your garage door, you’re going to want to pay close attention to the inside information below.

Spoiler alert – it isn’t.

Brute force will get criminals wherever they want to go

There are a bunch of different reasons why a zip tie simply isn’t going to get the job done when you’re looking to prevent criminals from coming into your home through the garage door, but the most obvious one is that a zip tie isn’t (by any stretch of the imagination) a secure security tool.

Yes, zip ties are notoriously impossible to break apart when your hands have been zip tied together – or when you’re fighting with the plastic and try to open it up after you’ve zipped something too tightly – but as far as securing something as important as your garage door, they just don’t meet expectations.

One swift kick and you’re likely to bust those zip ties to little pieces, and by then the criminals will already have access to your home.

Modern day professional thieves are smarter than they used to be

Secondly, modern criminals (especially professional thieves, responsible for upwards of 60% of all break-ins) are a lot smarter today than they used to be.

With the Internet at their disposal, they’ve learned exactly how to defeat most “DIY” security solutions, and they are pretty open about sharing this information with other professional criminals. The zip tie method has been defeated seemingly since forever ago, and is nothing more than “security theater” at this point in time.

You’re going to have to come up with something else if you’re going to beat criminals today.
