They have had a go at mine three times and the alarms have scared them off. Trouble is each time they have damaged the door or cut the hasps. Never picked the locks. I don't think the local muppets have got the intelligence. They just turn up with boltcutters so I hope this new heavy duty hasp will stop that. I looked up some expensive padlocks but they were all able to be picked within seconds by an experienced bike thief. I think it was a RIDE article.Big Jim, just be wary of the cheap padlocks - easy to 'pick'.
I've spent a fair amount of time beefing the garage up, and it's stopped two attempts so far.
Yes I've noticed that in places.Very sad,there really are some cretins out there.Incidentally, even locked up bikes aren't safe here, a favourite"game" for the single brain cell knuckle draggers at "booting out time" here is to kick the wheels of cycles in until it's unridable.
