Yes well the gun idea is certainly one my hubby and dad are in favour of, in fact my dads suggestion was a Claymore rigged up in the garage

I actually went with some motion sensors, attached to a rather loud alarm and light, which hopefully will cause the little bar-stewards to wet themselves if they try our garage again.

I'm going to chain the lawn mower and the bikes up as well, just make it all a little less convenient for them.

We actually have a theory on who it is, I'd love to catch the little snots in the act.
Where in the heck do you live anyway? Hopefully its not Kent, WA - but I wouldn't be too surprised!

This thread made me laugh

After reading all the threads, here is a summary of what you need to do: :lecture:

1. Go to Ikea/Walmart/Target and buy an electric kettle
2. Plug the kettle in and wait for it to boil
3. While you are waiting grab yourself a pistol/rifle/rocket launcher
4. Once you hear the burglar, invite them in for a cuppa
5. While they are drinking their tea, if they make any comment about how it would taste better made with a kettle you brought from the UK (including transformer) you are allowed to shoot them.
6. Otherwise take your transformer and attach it to their sensitive bits.

Well you left out the flying cockroach, but other than that, an excellent summary.

Sounds like a plan, although in all fairness they should probably make me the cuppa whilst the transformer is attached to their sensitive bits and I could also show them some good Liverpudlian hospitality by introducing them to the Kirby kiss on the way out

Why not just put the kettle on the top of the garage door so it falls on the burgular. thus 2 conversations combined
