Security chains are widely used to reliably secure high value items which can’t be readily locked in place using a standard lock.

Using the right security chain will help prevent these valuables from being stolen. In this post we address some of the common questions often asked about security chains and provide a useful comparison of the high security chains we offer.

What is the Best Bird Deterrent

The British Trust for Ornithology has estimated that bird-loving Brits spend in excess of £200 million every year on feeding wild birds in our gardens. The past 12 months, during which many of us have spent far more time at home due to the pandemic, has prompted renewed interest in our outdoor spaces.

But unfortunately - birds can sometimes be a nuisance or even become a health hazard.

How to Avoid Selection Bias

Studies have shown that humans are simply incapable of making unbiased, random choices. For example, when people are asked to choose random numbers more will tend to select odd numbers than even.
