    The old 2XG with a panel at the bottom.

    You are right about the frame. At one time it was common to put a car jack across the frame and jack it sideways until the door just swung open.

    get a dog with big teeth,so when the scrote breaks in he gets a chunk taken out of him, :LOL:
    being serious,having an alram doesnt that show you have something worth nicking,ive heard of expanding foam being pumped into the bell boxes(if it can be reached),if someone wants to get in there get in.
    years ago the old slinding patio doors used to be lifted off.
