    cost for the best lock to secure a garden shed


    What are the most secure locks on the market for a garden shed? I keep important work equipment in my shed and I’d like to increase security. What are some of the best products out there, where can I purchase them and what sort of prices am I looking at facing?

    "Hi, most sheds have T hinges that are screwed on so no matter how good your lock is it can be unscrewed and opened. I would use a heavy duty hasp and staple with a padlock or 2 but use coach bolts for both lock and hinges. Make sure your insurance covers garden contents. Put up a sensor security light and a fake cctv camera this will put most off.
    Hope this helps."

    "For a garden shed you are limited to what security you can use as normally the door isn’t always suited to all locks. Normally you would get a basic rim lock on a shed door."
