Been thinking about beefing up my shed security after a few bike thefts near me.
I have a brick-built slate-roof outhouse in my backyard (old coal shed and outdoor lavvy). It's visible from my house and the neighbouring houses and the backyard itself is walled and locked.
So moderately secure.
But if I'm going to trust it to my bikes then I'd like to harden the outhouse door - which at the moment is just a simple hasp that is padlocked shut.
I don't want a ton of massive locks on the outside of the door as:
A) it would look awful and
B) it would just advertise that the contents were worth breaking in for
So I was thinking something like a beefier hasp lock that is a little harder to pry, maybe something like this?
But that is probably considerably stronger than the door itself - so how do I discretely harden the wooden door? Bolt metal bars or plates to the back maybe?
All tips for increasing security welcome.
