Yes, but everyone knows those are for OLD people! Plus, when you have man-guests, who always get a tour of the garage/shop/toys/tools, it really isn't very impressive to show them your high-tech tennis ball device. It's been done to death.

I put an "X" on each side of the wall in the garage so we both know to stop when we look over and see it...works like a charm!

For one car I have a 6' length of railroad rail sitting in the garage. It doesn't move (much) when it gets bumped. Got a couple of 4x4 wedges for the other car.
But yeah, mostly I look at the stud in the garage wall I have memorized.

Interesting little device. I see they have a single laser model, too.
We use lally columns to determine how far to pull into the garage.
Stop when the side view mirror passes it.

I use a string hanging from the garage ceiling attached to a tennis ball. Tennis ball touches my windshield....I STOP!!

I think; details are a little sketchy over at FatWallet.
The idea is to go to this Chevy/Macy's link, enter the contest, and then you may be chosen for a $50 gift card - just print the confirmation page and head to your local Chevrolet dealership. Test-drive any Chevrolet vehicle like the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu or the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Traverse. Profit.
YMMV - I didn't go through the exercise because I didn't want all the promotional information that comes with the sweeps entry.

All this tire gauge talk ... I've had to air up all three cars due to temps that plummeted over the holiday!

I checked 16 tires over the weekend and skipped the other 4 under the car cover.

I would air those up, too, to prevent flat spotting. Unless the tires are off the ground.
