I'm sure you can find a video of the Lockpicking Lawyer picking it one in less than a minute.

We have a latch on the barn doors and we have had a lock on it, but how do I close it when I am inside?

The Veteran is not going into a place that can only be secured from the outside.

I would have cat6 running from my router to another modem?

So is it an office or a panic room?

If you don't feel that your presence is enough to secure something, you probably ought to be doing it somewhere else.

You latch the door from the inside with one of these:



Or if you don't want to spend $5 the you use one of these:



Are you actually concerned about someone stealing “The Veteran” (I assume your computer?) while you are in the shed?


EDIT: You are talking about using a regular door and deadbolt. For reference - when my wife locked herself outside while I was away on business it took the locksmith 2 hours to arrive and about 20 seconds to pick the deadbolt.

It's a shed. I'd use my universal key.

A $100 lock on a $10 door that's installed in a $5 wall is kind of a waste.

My shed is secured with a carabiner, to keep the hasp shut. What's a lock going to do other than cost money and inconvenience?

The same can be said of a house. After the locksmith incident I thought about upgrading my locks. Then I looked at the window next to the door. Then I thought about how easy it would be to cut a new door in my wall with a battery powered circular saw.

I do have a lock on my shed. I want someone to have to make at least a little bit of noise to steal my stuff.
