Shed Door Hardware

For all the years I have been building sheds, I have found the following shed door hardware to
be the best you can use for building shed doors.  Not only for ease of installation, but also for security purposes.

The main shed door hardware I will be referring to is shed door handles, hinges, and door thresholds.

Shed Door Handles

I like using a shed door d-handle for my shed doors. Using a 'D-Handle' for your shed doors is really simple and easy to install , and they come with a key.

door hardware.

The simplest and most cost effective way to lock your shed doors is with
a hasp lock.  A hasp is simple to install, they come in all sizes, and are readily availabe at any hardware

Shed Door Hinges

The best and most secure way to do hinges on your shed doors is with piano hinges.  I like using
galvanized piano hinges as they wont rust, and if someone is trying to break into your shed, they wont
be able to do it by unscrewing a few bolts off because there are none.  Also, a piano hinge will help to
keep your shed door aligned and less likely to warp along that edge as it is secured all the way up
and down the hinge side.

Stainless Steel Piano Hinges

Using regular or strap hinges for your shed doors would surely be easier, but less secure!  If
you insist on using this type of hinge, make sure you get the type of hinge where you can't tap
out the hinge pin.

Metal threshold angles

One of the best things you can do for your new shed is to protect the shed floor where your shed doors

are located! (shown in green in the illustration above). Rarely do I see homeowners doing this after building a shed.  The cost is so minimal and the benefit so great.

All you have to do is go to your favorite big box store like Lowes or Home Depot and buy a length of aluminum angle iron, preferably about 2" on each side, cut it to length, and screw it down to your floor.  Don't go with the really thick stuff, you just need about 1/8" thick aluminum.

I have some great information on how to build shed doors.  Double and single styles.
