You have recently invested into a bicycle with the best gear that can take you around for long and wonderful rides. You have equipped your garden shed with the right material to save your bike from extreme weather conditions like heat and rain. But one day you get up to discover that your bike is gone, it has been stolen. A very awful situation indeed! Garden shed security shackles can avoid such unpleasant situations.
What are Garden Shed Security Shackles?
These are equipments meant to secure articles in your garden shed and are attached to garden shed walls. Coupled with a lock and a security chain, these shackles can keep your bicycles firmly tied to the wall. These are generally made of hardened steel and welded material to provide extra security.
Use of Garden Shed Shackles
Garden shed security shackles are used to secure a bike to the wall of a garden shed wherever a ground anchor cannot be used. Garden sheds that have timber floor or do not have a concrete floor and stand on soil cannot use ground anchors for security. In such cases, these shackles are the best bet. In certain cases, where the flooring is not very secure, they can be a better option than ground anchor.
These shackles reinforce a part of the garden shed wall and get fitted with a horizontal support made of steel which makes it resistant from twisting. A thief can still steal your cycle but s/he needs to make a huge hole in the wall or use a saw to remove the wooden piece around the shackle. In both cases, there will be a lot of noise and a lot of time is required for this work.
If the thief indeed manages to break a shackle from the wall, the cycle will come along with the huge shackle attached to it and could be spotted by any bystander. Thus, the mere installation garden shed shackles can keep your bicycle safe.
Most of them can be fitted at any height and can secure medium and high value bicycles. Even landscaping and gardening equipment can be tied to these shackles with a sturdy lock and chain. These shackles can accommodate heavy-duty chains and U-shaped and cable locks as well.
Most of them shear nuts that have a hexagon shaped head that makes it easy for do-it-yourselfers to screw the nuts. The added advantage is that once the installation is complete. These hexagon head comes off and this makes it difficult to put a spanner of them to unscrew the nuts.
These garden shed shackles can be fitted easily by an average do-it-yourself enthusiast and most of the kits with instruction manuals and guidelines. Thus, you can save on the cost of installation as well. As the design is modular in many kits, you can use bars to match the requirements of your shed.
