Note that you will need access to both sides of the shed wall where you want to mount the Shed Shackle. Access from the outside is only required to poke bolts through. If you have a window in the shed, it is usually preferable to put valuables under the window so that thieves are unable to see them. The Shed Shackle is ideally suited to fitting on the window wall but can be fitted on any wall providing you have access outside. If you intend to fit it to a shed wall with a fence behind, it is generally not difficult to lift a few of the fence boards and thereby gain access for the bolt holes. Be careful with sharp nails if you adopt this approach. (Of course, this assumes that you can get access to the other side of the fence!)
