Do I Need a Lock On My Garage Door?

Whether or not you need a lock on the garage door depends on the type of garage door opener you have installed. A lock is not necessary if you have an electric garage door opener, as it would be nearly impossible for a criminal to manually open the door. Some older openers, though, can be lifted from the outside. If you have a situation of this kind, then a lock should be installed to maintain garage door security.
