Default Moving soon... Help needed on bike security....

Looking for bit of help (again) moving house in next 2 weeks and where I am going is not fantastic area, just all we can afford and won't have a mortgage etc.
Anyway want to make it as hard as possible if anyone comes after bike.
Now the help..... Does anyone know someone who can put in ground anchors? Also back gate could do with reinforcement eg steel bar going across on inside with lock. I sadly don't have knowledge or tools to do this and don't mind paying company to sort it so anyone use a place to do this type of thing? I know if they want bike they will do best to get it but I want to make it hard as possible if they try.
Thanks again.

been a few threads of late.....

all you can do is make it difficult for the toerags.


security lighting , a real or dummy infa-red camera. never leave the bike out front, once you come home, park around the back or out of sight. Always use a cover. disc lock and good chain with ground or WALL anchor. keeping the chain high off the ground prevents use of it being smashed into the ground by a sledgehammer.

you can buy garden / driveway alarms, sensor in garden and the alarm beeper in the house, kinda handy too. Battery operated.


if they want it so bad after that, let them have it.

have a look here:

if you decide on a half decent shed - build one, if you are staying at new address long term.





for the record, the northside rocks

Would it not depend on which lovely part of the north side ?

Ground anchor as a minimum, no make it two, no sorry 3 and a loud alarm oh and a security guard, armed, with severe paranoia and a pathological loathing of tea-leaves, might be ok then, maybe

Oxford do a bolt in anchor you can use. Just drill two hole, bolt it down and hammer in two ballbearins. Pretty solid
Nail it down, keep it covered, less likely to be robbed

Bottom line, the more devices and measures you use the better.

I have a stainless steel ground anchor sitting in the shed that I never used. It was very kindly made by one of the lads on here and he wouldn't take anything for it so it's yours if you want it.

If your manufacturing a ground anchor , construct it do if
They try and cut through it that there is another solid rotating steel insert
This way no grinder will get through it
