(AP Photo/Alan Diaz) Plastic shed doors have long been a safety issue, particularly in warmer weather.
They’re also a major concern in Florida, which has the highest rate of household theft in the nation.
Some states are taking action to prevent more thefts from being committed with plastic shed doors.
Plastic shed-door kits are designed to be installed by a certified person to help prevent or deter burglars.
They work by detecting the presence of chemicals in the materials.
The kits are sold at home improvement stores, retail stores and online.
They can be bought online for about $15.
The plastic shed-doors also work by using infrared light to detect the presence and location of chemicals.
According to a report by the National Association of Home Builders, about 17,000 plastic sheddoors were installed nationwide in 2014, and that number grew to more than 30,000 in 2015.
The report said about 1.4 million shed doors were sold in 2015, and the number has risen each year since.
In 2016, it was 2.6 million.
