Any advice on the best ways to secure a shed door from intruders? I'm considering interlocking hinges, and a bolt-cutter "proof" hasp lock. Anything else I should consider?

  • You best security is to not put small valuable items in there. A table saw, or lawnmower is probably ok. A chain saw or skill saw or cordless drill, likely to be stolen. Jun 4, 2012 at 19:31

Anything can be broken into by a determined thief, the idea is to make your place less attractive of a target than the next place.
