    Normally you would use 2 hinge bolts on a door, but should I use 2 on the top & 2 on the bottom on an outward opening stable door?

    Thanks

    Yep, treat each half as a seperate door - that goes for mortice locks as well.

    Sashlock on top, and deadlock on bottom is fine - just make sure they are both British Standard rated (kite marked). Have you checked with your insurer to see if they have any specific requirements for stable doors - worth a phone call.
