    Default Protect against Lock Snapping

    The use of methods such as lock-snapping proliferate exponentially as more and more thieves adopt the technique. Sadly lock-snapping requires very little artistry and so is accessible for even the most inexperienced would-be thief. High security euro locks, like the BS kitemarked UAP Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder, offers protection against this threat at a very low cost and replacing your euro cylinder can be done easily in just a couple of minutes. Just Google for "UAP Anti-Snap High Security Euro Cylinder".
