Fed up with the door and fender dings on your car from pulling into your two-car garage too deep or too far to the side? Then park like a pro, every time, with the Dual Laser-Guided Parking System. Designed specifically for two-car garages, this automatic guidance system allows you to pull into the exact same spot time and time again with laser-beam accuracy! Best of all, the parking system is easy to install, requiring only a Phillips screwdriver.

Instructions


More Info

A built-in motion sensor detects when a vehicle approaches, triggering the Laser-Guided Parking System to emit two bright, vertical laser beams from a mounting location on the ceiling. Mount the system using the included screws or double-sided tape, and adjust the individual laser beams to shine on each of the two cars in any location. When you pull in to either space, you'll know exactly where to stop, because the laser will strike the same spot on your car every time.

A Laser-Guided Parking System is also available for a single-car garage.

I use the my shop vacuum hose drapped over my table saw. When the hose starts to deflect, I stop going forward.

No electrical outlets on the front wall anyway.

I had this friend when I was in my teens (who mebbe smoked a bit too-much weed now and again) that had a F'n Sa-WEEET '57 or '58 Ranchero, absolutely stock, absolutely UN-Restored. Beautiful car/truck. Now, whenever,...... erm.... let's call him "Johnny"..... Whenever Johnny got a bit of extra cash, it would be more-likely to be spent on a leafy-green substance, rather than car-parts or rent, or food, you know - life's little luxuries. (I didn't imbibe myself, but I liked Johnny 'cuz, well - you couldn't HELP but like Johnny; he was a nice guy)

So, even though the Ranchero was F'n Sa-WEEET, it didn't have much in the way of "modern rubber", or Brakes........... so Johnny would stop the car by driving gently into his driveway, and gently would cut the ignition and let it roll to a stop (very gently) against a large Maple tree. Did it for close to two years, had these very-tiny scratches in the chrome bumper, but no "real" damage. Until one day, when he passed-out (from drinking I assume) JUST as he was turning-into his driveway. Well, the car/truck knew its spot, and was apparently "eager" to get there - but a bit TOO eager it seems........

The bumper could have been used for a large horse-shoe after that. Or the radiator - if it hadn't been cut-up so badly.

I was sick over it when I first spied the damage. I had offered to buy the car since I first saw it, but Johnny would never budge. I even offered after seeing the damage (but of course - at a lower amount!), but Johnny still wouldn't budge. Then one day, I drove by his place, the Ranchero was gone. I enquired about it through his cousin - Johnny had got in a bit of a tight spot, (long, dry run without weed, I presumed) and had sold the car. For $250.00. My "low bid" had been $4500.00. (this is 15-years ago)

I still shake my head to this day, whenever I think of that car/truck. Literally, all that car needed (before the "tree incident") to be a show-quality "survivor car" was mebbe an engine-compartment detail, a few chrome bits, a new seat-cover, and the paint buffed-out.

In case you're wondering why I related this tale - I "free-associate" a LOT, (some say too much!) and this is what I think of whenever someone "jokes" about bump-stop-parking...............

Why couldn't we just attach NOS '57 Chevy "Dagmar" rubber bumper bullets to the front of our car, then just hit the wall and bounce off?:rotfl:

Curb finders?

CVA said:
Two by four on the floor works well as does a tennis ball on a string attached to the ceiling. Line'em up any way you like.
Back in the good ol' days my dad had a '57 Mercury and he added a set of "curb finders" to it. I wonder if they still make those things? They attached to the bottom rear of the front quarter panel, just behind the wheel well and were made of metal and spring loaded. When they hit something they simply scraped and got your attention. A lot of people put them on, though, just because they "looked cool." :lol:
