Amazon reviews on this product isn't too pleasing. It is FAR for clearing out this product due to what appears to be junk product.

rated:
for those interested in reading the amaz0n reviews you can find them here. 

one common complaint is that the light isnt bright enough to see well particularly during daytime; as a quick workaround one reviewer simply used a box and some reflector material to greatly enhance visibility.

thanks for posting the deal, remick!

Oh hell. Just drive and if you hit you have another foot before you do any real damage. LOL

Park car in garage exactly where you want it.  Hang a tennis ball from the ceiling using some string.   Have it touch the front windshield.

Each time you pull into the garage, stop when the tennis ball touches the windshield.

No batteries needed. No risk of a 'lost' rebate either.

That's a good option, but this one will help in other places, too, in addition to your garage: http://www.amazon.com/Parking-Sensor-System-Digital-Display/dp/B004HGQO9Y/

Yep, get out, place sensor, park, pick up sensor before leaving again.  Rinse and repeat.  LOL

  I've been using the tennis ball tool for 30 years.  Works great.  Works for my wife's garage parking also!

  What does a 30 year old tennis ball look like?

I've used a practice golf wiffle ball.  A little bit lighter.  Another thing we did was to have the ball dead center of the steering wheel.

Tennis ball, string, and a screw. Hang ball from ceiling so when it touches your windshield, you stop.  Why do people like to overengineer stuff, or worse, buy crap like this?

  So you don't have to walk into a floating tennis ball when working in your garage and the car is gone?

Kinda like moving the kitchen table so I walk into the hanging light fixture.

Wow, I just pull slowly into my garage and stop the car before I hit anything.

Unless someone can post a link to FAR string and tennis ball this is still a better deal than the tennis ball setup.

  My dog keeps jumping up and grabbing the tennis ball ripping it down, he thinks it is a great toy.

  Stand around at local park with tennis court.  When ball escapes the chain link fence, discretely grab it and walk away.  That solves half of your problem.

You don't need a hanging tennis ball or the sensors, this is what I have been using for 12 years and works great every time.

All I did is mark a line with pencil on the wall aligning rear view mirror with your ideal parking position and I pull in and stop when the rear view mirror aligns with the mark on the wall. Its so simple and no one even notices the mark on the wall but you can park precisely every time.

My way requires a little geometry and a couple of screw eyes.
Tie the string to the top of the garage door, offset to the side.
Put a screw eye above the middle of the windshield.
Figure out where to put the 2nd screw eye so that the tennis ball hits the windshield dead center with the door open and is as close as possible to the ceiling with the door shut.
Note that the ball will travel a lot less than the door does, unless the ceiling is a lot taller than the door.
