Crime Prevention Tip:

Any enclosure to secure property is only as good as its weakest point. In this case, the 5 high fence used to store tools does not have a roof. By placing a roof on such an enclosure, you can prevent someone from easily climbing over the fence or simply reaching into the storage area to remove items.
