Bumper Blocker?

Need some front bumper protection because of my garage. Anyone have experience with the Bumper Blocker products? I was not sure if there were any problems attaching to the front of the car given the need for "anchor points". Happy to consider alternative ways to protect my front bumper if you have suggestions. I don't run a front plate so bumpshox or similar products won't work for me. Thanks in advance.

It is possible but I don't really want to deal with the unknown of another parking garage and I also have a good rate at my garage. I have a good relationship with the valets and a reserved/isolated spot in the garage area. However, there's always a risk of the bumper getting tapped by another driver picking up their car (or also a careless valet that I don't know). I have a bumper bully on the back and figured the front would be ok but that's not panning out as expected.

I used to use a similar product when I had to street park my car, it works well but I only covered the rear bumper using my trunk and would try to find spots where there were no cars in front of me

maybe put like 3-4 traffic cones in front of your car? visible and also if they back into you the cones will be between your bumper and theirs. just an idea

When the car is parked away in storage, it is actually in a good spot with no cars in front. Part of the problem is when it is brought out front and lined up when I am going to pick it up. There's always cars in front and behind and nothing I can really do about that. Some other car owners aren't that careful which is out of everyone's control so trying to dodge any risk there.

Going to order this thing and see how it works.

I've used these before

Pretty ugly I know, makes your car look like a hostage victim with duct tape across the mouth but they cover most of the bumper including the sides. Takes about 1-2 minutes to put on and take off. So if you're willing to put up with that hassle, it'll keep your bumper ding free.
