Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality lock Quick & simple to install took me 10 mins with having to cut a rebate in the concrete lip at the entrance of the garage door. or you can cut the steel sole plate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Squire Garage door Defender Strong, functional piece of equipment which should prevent unwanted access to my garage. Wish I'd purchased it before being releaved of various tools and a generator. Hey ho, live and learn! Excellent service. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a really good device, simple, very heavy duty and effective. I work in crime prevention and they are definitely one of the best ways to secure an up and over garage door. It is also highly obvious and therefore a good deterrent. It took me 20 minutes to fit but had to stop and buy a new drill bit so you will need a decent drill 10mm concrete bit and 16mm concrete bit. The final hole is 90mm long. It also needs a 6mm long-handle Allen key or bit and if you are going full pro you need a torque wrench or similar but I think the torque is obvious enough and there are rugged m10 concrete bolts so you would have to really go some to over do them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SQUIRE GARAGE DEFENDER Looks as if it will do the job but am concerned that there is no rating on the lock which looks as if it might be easy to pick or bump! Am I wrong? The thing that is annoying is that the base plate has three hole s for the bolts that go into the concrete but there are only three bolts included in the package which means that I now have to go and buy one more if I am too get the job done. Parcelforce sent me a text saying that I would receive the product between 9:00 and 10:00. The driver dropped it off at 17:30

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Added Security Required some extra security for my up and over garage door, sas this and gave it a try. Think it was just my door mechanism but I could not put the bar against the door, otherwise when it was opened it caught on the staple lug. Had to bury the plate 6mm in the concrete and still sits 6inches away from the door, but will still do the job I’m sure. Padlock mechanism not the greatest, but stiff, may free up over time although no dust flap so maybe it will get worse

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better. Installed for a customer, installation not a problem with the right tools as in the instructions. Main problem was the gap left for supplied padlock was too tight and wouldn't lock. The weight of the top piece makes the hole smaller unless you push it down. The padlock tab on the baseplate has to be out of the way of the door when opening so top bar cannot rest on garage door. (in this situation) After enlarging top of hole slightly I got the supplied padlock to work, but the customer found it too fiddly. Used a different padlock and all was OK. Could have been easier once installed, tolerances on the unit should be checked and padlock is not worth fitting, it is not the one seen in the picture but one out a cracker. Misleading information on screwfix catalogue and website. Buy and try a padlock in store and try everything together until you are happy.
