The shed is delivered with a door handle, keys and locking mechanism. If you are seeking a replacement for an existing shed I am sure your could buy one from Arrow but will likely need to disassemble the door panel to replace.

No need to order door handles and a locking mechineshim, this shed come wth both and keys. However having bought the item my self, I find this item not worth the time, assembly headaches that you will experience putting this shed together.
Take to heart the one star review from Sandy, "the instructions are poor and the holes don't match up...". I had the same experience. Half-way through the assembly of this Arrow Metal Garden Shed, I call the manufacturer, and told them about the low quality and design of this shed .
What also needed to be mentioned is that the walls of this shed are so thin, they dent easily
and also that this shed is not water tight when it rains. I world recommend finding a plastic shed for you needs, less parts and easier assembly.

Roof Slope Direction

This question is from 8 ft. x 3 ft. Metal Garden Shed
Asked by
Los Gatos, California

September 10, 2014
In the pictures, the roof is sloping toward the back. For us, we're installing this next to a fence, so with a backward slope, the rain water will go to our neighbor's house, which isn't a good thing. I want the slope to be toward the front. Some web sites say that there is an option to do this for this shed, but instructions don't show that. Does anybody know?

I am interested in purchasing the Arrow metal garden shed (8x3) and placing it against an outside wall of my home. It would rest on a hard clay foundation. I believe it would have ample protection against strong winds. Which anchor system should I purchase?

8 ft. x 3 ft. Metal Garden Shed is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from garden shed Decent instructions and construction for the price. Some points should be more strongly emphasized, for example the orientation of the walls can be wrong because of the shelf holes and then when you reach the end of the construction, it's too late. Some holes completely wrong, aren't even close to lining up. Construction time ridiculously long, like 2 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price Prior to purchase, I read many reviews about this product. Most of the complaints said the instructions were poor, the assembly was difficult, and/or the holes didn't line up. The only issue I found with the instructions concerned the door assembly. The instructions and illustrations had the front of the door facing up when it makes more sense to have the inside of the door facing up since that's where you're attaching the hardware. Assembling the shed is complex and time consuming and is best done by 2 or more people although I built mine alone by using ladders and saw horses to support the sides. To tighten the hard to reach screws, I taped heads to the wall on the outside and tightened the nut from the inside. To ensure that the holes line up, It's necessary to keep the frame level and square at all times. Once it's level, it's will probably remain so. However it's very easy to knock it out of square. Don't skip the step of measuring assemblies as they are completed and verify the structure is square after each step. If all else seems correct and there are still holes out of line, it's better to use brute force to put them in place rather than drilling new holes. It's not a simple task but if you take it slow, follow the instructions carefully, and measure diligently it should go up without any major issues. The finished shed looks great and is already full on junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lots and lots of BITS!! I'm pretty good at putting things together. But THIS, this is awful. I'm sure the end product will be great, but I very much doubt I will see it any time soon. I ignored others' reviews, saying the instructions are poor and the holes don't match up... thinking, those guys are fools, and I'm so very clever. W R O N G !! We've all had a crack at putting this thing together - unless you have a building team, I would def. get something ELSE!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The All Day Project The shed is what you should expect for the money. It appears very flimsy at first. However, it becomes much more sturdy during assembly. It is a full day project so don't start if you don't have the time to do it. For some parts of assembly you will need two people. Two points from the directions that are key. One - make sure that the final area is flat and level...completely level...and don't entertain the thought of putting it together and then moving it. Two - pay particular attention to the part numbers. You will need to buy flooring. Overall, it is a decent product. The final stages are tricky in that the aluminum tends to buckle and final hole alignment for the screws is close-not perfect. If you need a water tight structure, this is not it. For the money, it is a good buy. Knowing what I know now, I would still buy this shed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor construction The old adage, "get what you pay for" applies here. The item was very poorly constructed. The metal is of very low quality. pre-drilled holes all require additional drilling. Give yourself two full days to complete the job using some of he most poorly written plans I have ever read. This item is worth $200 at best. I do not recommend anyone purchasing this item if you are looking for a long term use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful shed, horrible assembly Even with all four included shelves installed, this handy shed still has enough space to fit 2 adult bicycles. The shelves are sturdy enough to hold flower pots, gas cans, or small bags of soil. It is great that the hangers and shelving are included with the shed. Assembly is not for the faint of heart and will probably take you at least 2 days. Generally follow the directions, but here are a few pitfalls: 1. Unless you enjoy drilling extra holes, don't install any wall panels upside down. The holes for the shelving should be at the top of the wall (shoulder level, NOT knee level). 2. Warning! During door assembly it is almost impossible to avoid cutting your hand when sliding on the top and bottom frame edges. WEAR SAFETY GLOVES. 3. My left door frame panel was 1/2 inch too tall for the door opening. The only solution was to cut the panel shorter using an angle grinder with a metal cut off disk. 4. None of the door frame holes were in the correct spot. To install the doors I had to drill new holes for the hinges using a 9/64" drill bit. 5. The thin metal sheet at the bottom of the door is too weak and tends to buckle. You can fix this by drilling extra holes through it and the sub frame then using screws from the provided "extra" bag. 6. The roof corner protector pieces are made of cheap plastic and break easily. 7. There is no floor included. To install a floor you will need to buy plywood and get it cut to the correct size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product will do what I want Face it, it's a metal shed that you assemble. Once constructed it will do what you want it to do. It's the cheapest option, so you have to roll with the negative aspects of the time it takes to assemble it and the poor assembly instructions. If there was a way to work around the nut/bolt option like the use of plastic inserts, the assembly time would probably be cut in half. I'm very good at building stuff, but this unit also requires that you're intuitive. If you don't get inside the head of the designer, you're done. I've spent 30 hours so far and I'm still not done. The instructions are probably being translated from some Asian language to English. What they say is not always what the mean. I was expecially irritated by the diagrams, they are not to be taken seriously. They are misleading and inaccurate. I suggest you stay away from this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This shed is very poor quality We bought this 8x3 shed thinking it would be as good or as easy to set up as a larger Arrow shed we own. This one would have taken an army of gnomes a month to assemble given the plethora of small screws and nuts. The gauge of the panels was also way to thin for our purposes and much thinner than our other shed. We ended up disassmbling the part we had done and packaging it up and returning it. Once the foundation is completed there is a note in the instructions not to go further unless you can finish completely. Hard to imagine doing that in less than a day. Very disappointing. If you buy an Arrow Shed make sure it is an EZ shed. The people at Home Depot were great both loading and unloading on return and crditing our account.
