In addition, a high security range of anti-snap cylinders, specifically designed to combat the rising concerns regarding cylinder manipulation attack will also be on display, providing one of the very few solutions to meet the stringent Sold Secure SS312 Diamond standard” created by the Master Locksmiths Association.
