(If the Clip is not yet on the Brace)
- Push U-Clip onto Brace & align w/ small hole on side
- Partially Screw Thumb Screw into U-Clip & hole (see close up)
- Push both Fasteners into Brace.
- Pre-fold the Brace to get a feel for how it wraps around the J-Arm.

The rope doesn’t matter. The criminal can not easily catch the rope, it’s too hard to do. They are trying to hook the metal latch the rope is attached too (it’s stable and doesn’t move around).
More importantly, you need to keep the rope hanging within access to 6 feet above the ground, to be complaint with regulations.
Do NOT over-tighten the screw! It only needs to be held in place, not over tightened till it bulges out and mis-aligns the shield.
If you have windows, BLACK THEM OUT. Letting someone see into your garage, lets them know ahead of time if they want something bad enough. PLUS, it gives them x-ray vision to pick the lock.
