Key Bumping

Alarming news: Did you know that the average mechanical key lock on most homes can be easily breached by a simple method called 'key bumping'.

What is a bump key and how does it affect you?

The cylinder lock is the most common type of lock in use today. Most cylinder locks use a pin and tumbler system which is comprised of upper and lower pins of varying length, along with small springs. Lock or key bumping works in the same manner as lock picking, where the pins within the cylinder must be moved into the proper position to allow the lock to open.

To know more about how this could affect you, please watch the below videos:
