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.

Shed Door Handles

I like using a shed door T-handle for my shed doors. Using a 'T-Handle' for your shed doors is really simple and easy to install , and they come with a key.

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 available 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 are the most common type of hinges to would surely be easier, but less secure!  If you want to use this type of hinge, make sure you get the type of hinge where a would be theif 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 your shed floor where your shed doors are located. Rarely do I see homeowners doing this after building a shed.  The cost is so minimal and the benefit so great.

Protect Your Floor At The Door Entrance

This area of your floor will deteriorate quickly without any sort of protection because of the beating it may take with moving mowers, etc, in and out frequently.  You can find these metal threshold pieces at your local hardware stores.

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.
