Shed break-ins Knapp Rise

Secure your shed or garage. Take a look at your shed and consider how you would break in. It’s worth having a good padlock on the door with no exposed screws. Pay attention to hinges, as these are sometimes easily removable. If you have windows then these could be vulnerable unless they’re secured with wire mesh or grills. And keep it locked at all times. Consider a battery-operated shed alarm. They look low key but they respond to movement or door contact with an extremely loud siren.

Don’t give burglars the opportunity or the tools to commit a crime. Lock everything away securely. Tools can be locked inside a locker or box or secured with a chain. Secure your bike to the ground or a lockable stand within a locked shed or garage. It’s always worth draping an old sheet or blanket over the top of mowers or bikes to keep them covered from view. Invest in a garage door stop. Although it might sound like stating the obvious, never leave your garage or shed door unlocked if you’re not around.
