It has been noticed  garage break and a shed breaks over the last couple of days
Are strong locks fitted to all entrances? Use substantial padlocks to secure stored expensive tools and equipment
Are door hinges exposed or heavy duty? Use heavy duty hinge bolts to make it more difficult to enter
Are all windows secure and have an obscured view from inside? Obscuring the view stops burglars from seeing any expensive equipment inside
Do connecting doors between your garage and home have robust locks? Any door connected to your home must be treated as any other external door is
Are your tools and equipment locked away? Tools can be used to break into your home so secure them with a steel chain through a ground anchor and lock ladders to a wall mounted bracket
