    Default shed security

    Has anyone got any hints and tips about shed security? I'm just about to put up a shed on my plot and it would be a good opportunity to add fiendish security features, if they exist.

    Hi Noshed welcome on board. All I can suggest is a paddlock. Not very fiendish I'm afraid!!

    Thanks. I'm wondering about some arrangement involving the adjacent concrete fence posts and a big chain...

    Noshed,

    You need to get hold of a 'shed bar' which is a long metal bar secured with a padlock. Our allotment society got hold of some (supplied free) by the local crime prevention officer.

    On the subject of sheds.....you can now get a solar kit for around 70. It will supply all equipment needed to power a light and / or socket for your allotment shed. I cant remember name but can find it if anybody interested.

    Any details of the shed bar? We're right into community policing round our way so this could be a winner.

    Thanks. I'll look into it. What do you think of the underfloor version - called shed secure or something?
