Shed and Garage Locks
Garden buildings, sheds and garages are often not as secure as they should be and owners are also unaware of how much of a security risk they are. It is important to have secure outbuildings to prevent theft, protect tools and garden equipment and also to prevent burglars accessing tools they could use to break into your home.
Garages adjacent to property or built in to the ground floor can also be access points for burglary.
