For some reason, people leave garages and sheds open or unlocked when they wouldn't dream of leaving the rest of their house similarly unsecured. Not only is one of your most valuable possessions stored in your garage, garages often house expensive tools that are especially targeted by burglars. Sheds often hold expensive bicycles and yard tools and yet are frequently left unlocked. Furthermore, a garage or shed may hold the "key" to breaking into an upper floor: a ladder. Secure your garage and shed just as you would the rest of your home.
