The new Mul-T-Lock TS007 3 Star Integrator cylinder comes with a reinforced bar that furthers the cylinders protection and resistance to lock snapping. It's also got 2 grip deflectors that further it's resistance to snapping as they make it difficult for grips to grab the cylinder and attempt to snap. As a bonus the keys are on a protected system so they can't be copied unless you have the code card which is great if you're worried about people copying your keys.

We can also key alike and master key this product to all of the Mul-T-Lock Integrator products for example rim cylinders, doubles and thumbs.
