My Jeep got broken into again, this time by cutting the side window of my soft top. I decided to make a break-wire alarm system that runs across the windows and loops through the zippers. If the cable is cut or a connector at the zipper is unplugged, a 120dB alarm will trigger.
The device was inspired by those anti-theft devices in electronics stores which function using the same break-wire system.
