Hasp and staple padbolts
A hasp and staple padbolt is a highly effective way of securing your garage from the inside.
This locking system is used with a padlock and is suitable if you enter your garage through a side door or from the inside of your property. You can also fix bolts to the runners on up-and-over garage doors for the same reason.
These security solutions are reasonably inexpensive to fit.
A garage defender is a solid metal bar that is bolted into the concrete in front of your up-and-over garage door to prevent it being opened. The metal arm can be unlocked and removed by you when you need to use the door.
This is a very solid security solution for your garage door as it is very hard to remove. It also acts as a visual deterrent to burglars.
Apex Mobile Locksmiths recommends mortice locks for open-out double garage doors, internal joining doors or garage side doors.
