Up and Over Garage door security
Secure with bolts and nuts, with the heads outside,and fixed to 1 inch box section steel, run down both sides of the door, also a steel plate running down both sides of frame on the outside.
A garage alarm, security lights and covert cctv, and baby monitor also help, ensure the roof is secure as well.Posted 5 years agowwaswasSubscriber

In the last house and as my drive was poor quality tarmac I opted for a 4” x 4” post held with a couple of Z type brackets on the inside near the top. Bit like a medieval castle gate.
My logic was that if they tried to pop the central latch and open the door the timber post would stop the door opening, but on reflection they could have peeled the door corner back. So bolts like the one above would have been good

when you replace the door, get one with four point locking rather than single point.
Visual detterent (or enticement???). Fitted one after we’d ben broken into as the scrotes already knew where we were.Posted 5 years agopnikSubscriber
I’ve been thinking about this too. The garage defender does run the risk of advertising, unfortunately the drive in front of my garage is slabs, so not sure that I could secure one anyway. There is also the little issue of a massive window in the side wall too, any ideas for making that more secure, without spending hundreds on external bars which again run the risk of advertising. The additional side bolts look like a good idea though.Posted 5 years agopdV6Member
As has been mentioned several times, Pacri bolts here.
When our garage got done over, I don’t know if they even tried to get through the door (it’s quite cosmetically challenged) but I like to think that the bolts put them off.
However, the scroats found the weak point by going in through the side window & dismantling the bike to pass the bits out. Hence lots of internal security as well as external now.Posted 5 years ago
