Shed security

Postby Platti » Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:20 am

I've currently got a bolt which is riveted into the frame - there's no way any scumbag will get it off with a screwdriver.

My problem is with the cold/damp etc its warped a little making locking a right chore as I have to lift the door to get it to fit.

I'd like to take the bolt off and replace it with something that will still shut and lock even if the door shifts again.

Any ideas ?

Simply Build It

Buy yourself a swivel hasp and staple, preferably fit this using bolts which go through the door and frame.
