What is Lock Bumping

Lock bumping is different than lock picking. To bump a lock you need to insert a bump key into the lock, tap the key and turn it at the same time. The idea is to have vibrations run through the key, jumping the internal pins into the unlocked position. Similar to lock picking, bumping requires a lot of skill and practice to get good at it. But once someone is an accomplished bumper, very few locks are safe.

Note: Video by Terry Whin-Yates, The Weiser Deadbolt was bumped very quickly.

What is a Bump Key

A bump key is a key in which all the cuts are at the maximum depth (999). It is unethical and illegal for locksmiths to make bump keys, yet this does not deter everyone from having them made. Bump keys can be cut for all standard pin tumbler locks. When the majority of locks are weak against this form of attack, what can you do to protect your door from being bumped?

High Security Locks Surrey BC

The only true way to prevent lock bumping is to upgrade the lock on your door. A high-security deadbolt with an exclusive keyway is absolutely un-bumpable. High-security exclusive keyways have attributes built into the key and the inside of the lock itself which helps protect against lock bumping and lock picking attacks.

For example: the Assa high-security deadbolt has a special sidebar built into the lock which can only match the correspondingly exclusive key. Each customer has their own unique keyway and sidebar. A bump key for such a lock is literally impossible to make without permission from your locksmith and building manager. This sidebar technology also protects against lock picking attacks! Other high-security deadbolts might use a different method, such as magnetic beads inserted into the key or special bump-proof pins and tumblers, but the end result is the same – better door security against bump and lock picking attacks.

While most home invasions still occur in traditional forms – forced entry, stolen keys, or even having your lock picked open – having a high security deadbolt protects against all of it! High-security deadbolts use reinforced steel and are specially designed to defend against forced entry. High-security locks have exclusive keyways, sidebars and pickproof pin-and-tumbler systems. They are literally pick and bump proof. A good rule of thumb is if your locksmith can’t break into the lock, neither can the criminal.
