The steel-reinforced, heavy-duty construction of a Lifetime Outdoor Storage Shed can withstand most of Mother Nature’s wear and tear, but for extreme conditions, this kit may be necessary. If you live in an area with severe winds, rain, or snow, the Extreme Weather Kit is a perfect addition to your shed. The kit is designed for Lifetime 8 ft. wide sheds and provides reinforcement for up to three roof trusses. If you have a larger shed with more roof trusses (8ft x 12.5ft or 8ft x 15ft) you will need to purchase an additional Snow Load Kit to reinforce each truss over three. The Extreme Weather Kit includes steel reinforcement channels, roof truss supports, additional door latches, and floor anchor brackets. Kit does not work on Lifetime 10' x 8' or 15' x 8' Garden Buildings.


Kit Includes: Steel Wall Reinforcement Channels (8 pieces)

Steel Door Reinforcement Channels (8 pieces – 3 Horizontal, 5 Vertical)

Floor Anchor Mounting Brackets (11 total – 2 for Doors, 6 at the Trusses, 3 Along the Back) – Anchor Bolts Not Included

Roof Truss Bracket Hardware (3 pieces)

Gable-to-Truss Steel Supports (4 pieces)

Reinforcement Door Latches (2 pieces)

Roof Reinforcement Screws (12 per truss)

Installation Hardware Included

Even if all those reviews were in Canada, I figured it was better to be safe than sorry. This kit is a hefty upcharge over the basic cost of the shed--seems very high. It does do a great job of stiffening and strengthening the shed, though. The difference is very clear. Installation is somewhat time-consuming, with lots and lots of self-tapping screws. Lifetime could certainly make this process easier by selling the kit as an option with the shed, and giving you instructions for assembling both at once. As it stands, you need to undo some of the work you&apos;ve done assembling the shed to assemble this kit. Lifetime could also do a better job of predrilling holes to make the process easier. Also, be aware that some options, such as the corner tool corrals, won&apos;t work with this kit installed. Overall, it took me a full day to install this kit, but am glad it&apos;s there. Suggestion for lifetime--offer a package of the shed + kit, with combined instructions and an attractive price, for those who live in more difficult climates. </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-11-04</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2014-11-04" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="76010494"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Extreme Weather Kit (8ft sheds)" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">FlyingFrog</span> from <span itemprop="name">Useful Addition</span> <span itemprop="description">This made an excellent shed even sturdier.
