Sometimes it can be difficult to pull into one's garage without crashing into the back wall. Even with daily practice, pulling into the garage can be a nerve-wracking experience. Sure, it's not landing an F-16 on the deck of an aircraft carrier, but it can be a tricky maneuver. Particularly for guest drivers. Or teens. Or anyone else who is secondary on your insurance forms.
To keep those fragile boxes full of Christmas decorations and 6th grade soccer participation trophies safe, why not dangle a tennis ball from your garage ceiling to mark where you should stop?
Here's a way to do it*:
Hang a string from where you think it will hit the center of your windshield or the spot right in front of the driver.
Park better than you ever have before.
Using a stick, laser pointer, friend, or your eyeballs, determine where you should hang your tennis ball.
Put a screw into your sweet spot, then tie on the string.
Attach the string to the tennis ball.
Then just remember to stop when you hit the tennis ball as you drive into your garage.
*You could also make a dowel/tape/nail contraption to stick the string to the ceiling all in one go. Or just send a lanky friend onto the roof of your car. Or tie a string to a spear gun. There are other options, is all I'm trying to say.
