Not a secure solution

This four-digit combi lock is long at 180cm and has a 7mm-thick cable. Faced with a humble pair of £10 bolt croppers from Machine Mart, it could only resist for a couple of seconds. 

Seriously, if you find yourself in the bikeshop thinking, ‘yep, I need a lock but aren’t they expensive, I’ll just get myself one of these cables’, don’t do it, it’s the very definition of false economy.
