So my parents bought an outdoor storage shed a few months ago, and a team of Amish builders (seriously!) hauled in the pre-made walls and roof and assembled the small structure in the backyard. There aren’t really any valuables in the shed, nothing anyone would want to steal, anyways.
A few days ago, my father found a few of the door hinge square recess/Robertson screws on the floor. After looking it over myself, I agree with his conclusion that it is impossible for the screws to have fallen out themselves. In other words, someone hopped the yard fence and tried to get into the shed.
So… we’re trying to think of ways to prevent someone from casually removing these screws again. I’m thinking small 1/8″ steel ball bearings secured in the screws’ recesses with a bit of wax or putty. If the screws need to be accessed in the future, we can pull the balls out with a strong magnet.
Please share any suggestions you may have. For reference, shotgun and protective dog methods are out of the question.
