Garage door locks and window locks
Garage door locks, as their name suggests, are designed to secure your garage. In addition to housing your car or bike, garages are often used to store expensive tools and garden machinery, DIY tools, deep freezers, bicycles, ladders, camping equipment. These items can add up to a great deal of value.
A poorly secured garage door lock is an opportunity for thieves
A poorly secured garage door lock presents an opportunity to the opportunist thief. The tools stored in garages are often used for breaking into the house and so making sure your garage is securely locked is a worthwhile investment! Bear in mind many garages have more than one door, i.e. a side door connecting to the house or back garden and sometimes windows. This means these windows and doors need good secure locks. Insecure doors and windows in the garage may give access to your house or back garden.
