A: It will protect your TV in cold weather, however, we recommend following your TV manufactures storage temperature range. If the area you live in falls within that temperature range year round you are fine to leave your TV in the Storm Shell year round. If the temperature in your area exceeds (either above or below) your TV manufactures storage temperature range we recommend bringing your TV inside during those times of the year.
A: We would not recommend shipping a TV in this case.
A: It has four latches to hold the cover on. Each latch has a hole for a small lock.
A: Yes. All 4 latches are lockable.
A: My 65" flat-screen TV has been mounted in a storm shell outdoors on my lanai for over 2 years with no negative impact. The TV is a standard unit, not a special "outdoor" device.
