053 Discreetly Open Garage Doors

Lock picking can be an arduous and time-consuming task, which is why operatives tend to seek out workarounds such as clamming a target’s key (page 114) or bypassing the lock altogether (page 120). In a home infiltration scenario, an attached garage with a door operated by an electric opening device provides a significant vulnerability for the Nomad to exploit.

Because they must slide up and back onto rail systems, garage doors are built with space along their top edges. By sliding a straightened-out hanger with a hook at its end between the garage door and the upper doorframe, the cable that disengages the automatic opening system can be hooked. Because most civilians use their automatic door closure systems as default locking mechanisms, this is all that is needed in order to “unlock” the door before manually opening it.

Once the operative has pulled the door open just a few feet, he will quickly slide beneath it and immediately pull the door closed. Entry to the house may now be possible—many homeowners fail to lock the door connecting the garage to the house. Even if that door is locked, there is now a safe and covered space from which to work on bypassing the lock for as long as necessary.

Civilian BLUF: Cut or tie off the manual-open cable of your garage door so that the cable becomes unreachable by a tool inserted at the top of the door. Even in a secured garage, never leave your car keys in your car. Lock the door between your house and garage to create layers of security.
