Cold Crashing?

" If you are cold crashing in your glass carboy its tough. From whats been said on here it can be a potential danger to seal the glass carboy completely before cold crashing because of the pressure difference. Wether or not it would actually shatter the carboy i dont know, but the easiest no fuss method would be just to use an S-lock style airlock. It wont completely prevent outside air from being drawn in, but it will keep things clean and wont suck in any sanitizer (like the three piece airlock will). "
