Do you ever have trouble not knowing how far to pull forward when parking your vehicle in the garage? Parking problems can be a common occurrence for people with smaller sized garages, large vehicles or garages used for storage. While hanging tennis balls from the ceiling and using tire stop mats work just fine, a garage door laser parking assistant works even better. These small devices are easy to install, inexpensive and are the most precise way to park your vehicle in the garage.
Laser parking assistants allow you to park your vehicle in the exact same position every time. Parking assistants shoot a class 2 laser beam from the ceiling of your garage to your dashboard or fixed position on the car. You simply pull your vehicle in the garage and make sure the laser beam is positioned on the exact same marker on your vehicle to ensure a well positioned park. These devices eliminate the need for hanging tennis balls and parking mats which can be an eye sore. Laser parking assistants are both discreet and easy to install. They are an ideal solution for finished garages and garages with a tight fit.
