Police decided not to visit but note the attempt.
What i already had fitted worked well and just one lock had been attempted before the internal system operated all the perimeter lighting. The 5 dealocks that will be on this side door will be hard to overcome as two will be into concrete and the hinge side of the door will have one fitted.
I do have about 15 chains and D locks plus the cable type links for padlocks but they are normally used only when away on hols. I just chain all bikes to each other and the ramp.
I still say that no one will get into this garage undetected but now, angle grinders will be needed for about 5 minutes running time. The front door already had 3 locks ut no one has ever attempted to get in that door.
These garage raids will become more common as people become unemployed during the covid crisis. Possibly just after tools for spending money.
Last night, as i only had 1 serios lock on the door, i decided to hang out my 6 hook herring traces all around the garage. Didnt find anyone hooked in the Morning. Fishing line traces and herring hooks could inflict a lot of pain if you walk into a few. It was only a temporary job.
Gates are the next order and i can get high steel gates at around 100 pound each then weld on any lock brackets for night time use. Houses opposite are in a worse position as they have a narrow service lane which has no traffic. Easy targets at night.
There are some cheap garage alarms with remote controls on ebay that will make a lot of noise but most are run on small batteries.
