Ground/wall Anchor
#1
OK after hearing of bike theft on the increase, I have been investigating locks and anchors for use at home. I know these are not insurance spec "sold secure" standard but if anybody wants an anchor like the one pictured below let me know. I will try to source the shear bolts cheap as well. These are just bits of 50mm box section that somebody has cut up and painted. Should cover you on your house insurance as locked up to immovable object.

No but you could mount it through the shed floor into the concrete base assuming it will have one.

Thats the plan ! Either that or have 5 or so concrete slabs underneath and bolt through onto them !

My advice is some form of anchor plus a personal attack alarm, something that makes a horrible high pitch alarm if wire is pulled out, in an enclosed area its impossible to stand near one without ear damage. You'll never stop thiefs if they are determined but they won't normally hang around if an alarm is sounding.

Local police stations normally give out free shed alarms if you ask at the counter

Just a small addition...the immovable object thing with Insurance usually applies for items kept outside of the building, not within. Though extra security is good for peace of mind and this sounds like a good solution. If i wasnt renting id be up for one.
