Model 3 parking lot bumper protection NYC

In New York City if you park your car in a garage/lot, it is almost a 100% guarantee that your bumpers will be scratched and dinged by parking lot attendants. (bumpers are specifically excluded from parking lot/garage liability claims in NYC) So, a market has grown up for bumper protectors. Please share makes and models of bumper protectors that will save Model 3 bumpers from parking garage damage.

Many thanks,

Get a dashcam to record front and rear videos.
The TeslaCam can be useful but don't offers rear recording.
The Sentry mode records and saves events, but I don't think that the TeslaCam saves events when driving unless the driver clicks on the recording icon.
Something great is that when the Sentry is on while the car is parked, then the auxillary 12 V is on, so your dash cam will also be recording.
Thanks. Ridiculous as it sounds...in NYC a garage (and its employees) is NOT liable for damage to bumpers when parking or moving cars in the normal operation of the business. So, recording the incident does no good.
