I have been removing the rope from the mechanism for the past several homes. True, one could coat-hanger the actual little lever but, it is more trouble than they expect and they go elsewhere; cost = $0. A stick with a screw-eye in the end hung inconspicuously to one side of the door track or the other is handy when the mechanism need to be unlatched. I also lock the track since I only open the garage door when cutting unusually long stock or loading sheet material; neither happens often. I mean its not like people keep a car in there or anything
