Crime Prevention Tip:

Some u-locks have proven to be easier to defeat than other u-locks. UTPDs minimum recommendation for bicycle security is to use a u-lock that is secured with either a combination lock or a flat keyed lock. If your u-lock uses a barrel shaped key, then consider replacing it with a u-lock that has a flat shaped key. For further protection, use both a u-lock and an independently locking cable lock. You should also register your bicycle at: http://www.utexas.edu/parking/transportation/biking/bicycle_register.html
