Squire Garage Defender
Time Will Tell
It was easy to fit with good instructions. It certainly looks the business and should deter casual thieves. Time will tell how effective it is.

A garage must have
I purchased the defender after having my garage broken into.
It has just had it's first test and has saved my garage being completely emptied and ransacked.
Although the thieves were able to loosen the defender from the concrete, the base plate which slides underneath the garage frame saved it and stopped the thieves from opening the door any more than 20mm.
My only suggestion would be to take the two caps off on each end of the cylinder shape and fill it with expanding foam. This is a weak spot as the caps can be removed allowing a pole to slide through for leverage

VISUAL DETERRENT ONLY
Caught the lug on the baseplate accidentally with the lawn mower breaking the weld.
When I saw how minimal the weld penetration was I was horrified. A thief could have broken the weld easily using a jemmy under the padlock or a sharp hammer blow to the side.
5 minute attack resistance? 5 seconds more like.
PLUS the manufacturer isn't interested, so will be visiting a proper welder with the bits!
