Hello everybody. I've recently seen a shed called Daylight Secure advertised in the back of the Gardener's World, and it's featured in this month's RHS magazine too-

The Shed For Gardeners | Brodco – Innovative Garden Products

Having called them last week to ask a few questions I'm quite keen on one, but it is a lot of money to spend without seeing one first. I was wondering if anybody has bought one, and what their opinion is of it?

Please help!

Hi Dave, they look good dont they, a friend of mine has 3 of them,the problem we both found was  with shed ,garage etc security is as we all know, as a  lock only stops an honest man,iv just had an approach light fitted to the garage that need not wake the neighbourhood as i can point it almost as close to the actual doors as i want ,i will do the same for the new shed when we get it,pointed a little high so animals dont activate it, yes we think they work well,  good luck Dave

Like Alan said, If they want in, they get in.

I have a wooden shed which I built from scratch, the hinges are hidden away behind the lapped timber and I used round head bolts attached inside so there is no chance of anyone using a spanner. A good lock is also only as good as the bracket its attached to.

 

If they are so expensive, it might be worth just buying a cheaper shed and fortifying it and saving lots of cash

 

plus I think they look like a Tardis toilet

Hey, I've never seen a Tardis toilet - fascinating idea ……..

Is all that security necessary and worth the cost for what you plan to store in there.

They are literally a toilet that looks like a toilet, not very nice!!

Sounds very odd indeed, but as I've not seen one I find it hard to imagine - I loved the Tardis and hoped that the loo looked like the police box - but from your reaction I guess not!!

At £1700 for the 8x6 they need to be good. Get a good wooden one and spend the difference on a good lock. I'd only have one if I could hide it somewhere!

I would be worried that the whole shed plus contents would be nicked at that price.
