Garage door Locked???

Just wondering how you guys do as far as your car garage with automatic opener and as far as locking the garage? This mainly applies to your wife and her taking the car out of the garage and using the opener. In most cases i would think it would be an inconvenience for her to have to lock and unlock the door then put it up. You want to have it locked for protection of thieves but how inconvenient would it be to have to unlock it and put it up, lock it back, ect?

I guess its personal preference but I'm just trying to gain insight on these things.

What am I missing?

When it's down, it's 'locked'. You can't open it from the outside by hand, at least not without enough force to damage something.
If you don't have an electric opener, you need some sort of lock. I also have a hidden keypad on mine to activate the opener if the remote doesn't work for some reason, or if the pass door closes behind me. I use 'Storeroom' type locks on all my exterior pass doors. They are always locked from the outside, but always unlocked from the inside.
