Lifetime Storage Sheds Accessories - 60011 Extreme Weather Kit.

Free shipping to the lower 48 United States for this Lifetime shed extreme weather kit.
Note that this kit provides sufficient reinforcement parts for an 8x10 shed. In other words, you will have more than enough parts for 8-foot wide storage shed from Lifetime for any length shorter than 10 feet, and not enough parts for any length longer than 10 feet. You can order additional snow load kits to reinforce the roof trusses here; all other parts needed for sheds longer than 10 feet will need to be purchased directly through Lifetime Products - 1-800-225-3865.
This kit is not compatible with Lifetime garden sheds (sheds with the entry on the length side of the shed instead of the 8-foot sides), on 7-foot wide sheds, storage buildings (sheds with an 11-foot width), or models 60086 and 60085.

Make your Lifetime shed even tougher with this extreme weather kit accessory. The 60011 is designed to help reinforce the roof trusses, walls, doors, and floor. Steel channels increase the ability of the shed to withstand heavier snow fall and higher winds. In fact, adding this kit to your 8-foot wide Lifetime shed will help your building actually exceed wind pressure requirements for Dade County, Florida. This Lifetime shed weather kit has sufficient components to reinforce 3 trusses, which is enough to support the trusses of the 6405 Lifetime storage shed. So, if you live in an area where you get frequent heavy snow loads or high winds or both, consider getting this extreme weather kit for your 8-foot wide shed.

Useful Addition
This made an excellent shed even sturdier. If there's any chance for high winds or heavy snow it's an easily installed and excellent addition

An excellent addition to the Lifetime sheds if you live in a place that has a lot of bad weather and snow. Makes the shed virtually indestructible after installed.

Nice Kit
A little expensive and time consuming to install but worth the piece of mind for my investment. I was surprised though that there were 3 cross braces for the right door and none for the left

Good Result, But Expensive And Time-Consuming
I live in New England and bought this kit to go with my new Lifetime shed after reading reviews of the roof collapsing in a heavy snowfall. Even if all those reviews were in Canada, I figured it was better to be safe than sorry. This kit is a hefty up charge 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've done assembling the shed to assemble this kit. Lifetime could also do a better job of pre drilling holes to make the process easier. Also, be aware that some options, such as the corner tool corrals, won't work with this kit installed. Overall, it took me a full day to install this kit, but am glad it'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

Extreme Weather Kit
I have a Lifetime 8 x 15 shed. It is well built and strong. I wanted to make it as strong as possible so I ordered the Extreme Weather Kit and additional snow load kits. They are very well engineered, extremely stout and add greatly to the rigidity and strength of the shed. The metal seemed tempered it was so hard to drill. I couldn't be happier. PS The door gets reinforced and actually provides good security
