    I posted on our local neighborhood social media. Everyone said theyve caught kids pulling door handles on their security cameras. I mean, crime does go up when these kids are out of school.

    I pulled it in the garage. I`m gonna call around and see about a window motor.

    612Detail- Huh, wonder if any of those kids caught on video are, uhm...ID-able. But then again, I guess that the days of talking to some kid`s parents and getting `em squared-away are long gone

    Yeah, get the window motor (for a few good reasons ), but I`d keep your Situational Awareness cranked up anyhow, sounds like bad [stuff] could happen around there.

    Oh man do I feel fortunate to live where I do...don`t always appreciate it until something like this gets me thinking.

    I realize that my my inner "old fart" is showing. But when I was a kid (I know, I know) the neighbors didn`t need to have the friendly talk with my parents, they took it up with me directly.
    And my parent`s backed them up.
    The devil made me do it the first time.
    The second time I done it on my own.

    Nutbread- Yeah, same here. It was sorta a not-goofy version of that Takes a Village thing that I tend to disparage. I learned some *very* valuable lessons from (other) adults who caught me doing stuff...and actually, the best lessons weren`t even reported to my parents; the job was done and there was no need because the lesson had already been learned. I always respected adults who treated me that way- calmly and objectively, taking time to explain why I was out of line and not condescending to me just because I was a kid.

    Pull the trim and unplug the switch. I am not saying i know from experience but well it stinks when you get your self back in the same boat again with window down from hitting the button while not looking and or thinking about it. Even with tape on it you can still push it out habit for few seconds then (*^*&^)(&))(&*&%*%% the darn window is down.

    512Detail- Ah, glad it rolled up! And yeah, I like trashmanssd`s idea...IMO we *tell* ourselves we won`t do something like hit that switch, but then....oops....
