Keep your Shed safe…

by awitherick on 3 March, 2011

It’s that time of year again and the police are warning residents to keep their garages and sheds safe.

Herts Police offer the following additional advice:
– Remember to always lock your garage door securely. Metal “up and over” garage doors can be secured with additional locks fitted to either side and/or a floor mounted locking ‘T’ bar with a closed shackle padlock. Wooden garage doors can be secured with two substantial hasps and staples and closed shackle padlocks (your local DIY store should be able to advise on the different types of locks).
– Consider having a ‘dusk til dawn’ light fitted outside to deter any potential thieves.
– Give your home the ‘lived-in look’ by using timer switches on lamps if you’re due back home after dark (always follow the manufacturer’s instructions).
