We just got back from a family funeral to find our bike stolen from the back garden which was padlocked out of site. We are renting, so the gate can't be changed, but maybe we can add something, so we are after ideas, of how we can make it safer/secure. Currently it is a solid 6ft gate. It has two bolts on the inside. One is at the top and one at the very bottom. Unfortunately the bottom one is misaligned so was open. This means anyone can just put a hand over and unlock the gate.
I am wondering if we re align the bottom on and add a middle one and maybe but a large heavy duty padlock on that, it will deter people? What do other people have?
