I agree with this. After I lost teh key of my supposedly, high security padlock (not a granit, but still around £40), I expected to go through afew blades and be there a while with my angle grinder. It actually took about 5 seconds to cut through each leg.
You can do this with pretty much any padlock, so it really doesn't matter what you buy. Just try to get one with a thick shackle that only has a small opening
Totally agree - any half decent one will do as it will delay someone for a few moments. Timber/hinges can be forced/split or entire latches/bolts etc unscrewed in no time. There are a few things you can do to keep them out a little longer, such as fit devices that have no screws on the outside, but if they want in, they will get in. I have all my latches/locks etc bolted so no access to screws. I also have security cameras and motion detected spotlights dotted around as a deterrent. All that being said I don't store anything of great value in my shed. All my power tools or anything else of value is stored indoors.
Don’t put one on when they go in your garden they will be like no lock so nothing In there . They see big top of the range lock there eyes will light up . Also a lock is only as good to what it’s secured to so don’t over think it
I got one like below back in 2015 and still operating absolutely fine. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/382919585141 A padlock is really just a deterrent. If someone wants to get into your shed, they'll get in regardless of what type of padlock is there if the sides of the shed is made of shiplap wood.
