    Lock Bumping

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr23tpWX8lM

    Has anyone else heard of this? I got it in a email that is going around work, and hionestly would not of belived it had it not been for the news story about it. Did a google search and there is a ton of sites that show how to do it. Kind of scary that it could be so easy to do.

    Never seen that one, I'll have to try that.
    We have the death rule for intruders in these parts so there isn't much to worry about.

    WHY does a "bump" proof lock have to cost $150? Surely they can make them less expensive.

    Funny that the news station won't tell how a "bump" key is made, yet they tell you it's all over the internet.

    You will only ever have to buy one because an intruder will kill you if they see you have one.

    I don't understand.



    Also, I wonder if this works on cars.

    It looks pretty easy, but then again, so is breaking a window.
    But I guess for $150 it couldn't hurt to put a better lock in.
    It is kinda like the club on a car... it won't stop a determined thief, but if your house is harder to break into than your neighbors, guess which one a thief will go for.

    I don't think it works on cars because they use sliders, not pins and tumblers.

    Re: Lock Bumping

    I have heard of this before. The thing is that the key has to be filed down in a special way.

    The solution is to get a lock that is a generation higher than the old locks most people have in their homes. Look at your key. A good lock often has more than one row of pins, which makes it impossible to 'bump'.

    Also make sure that the cylinder of your lock is drill secured.

    Another good advise can be to have two locks on your main entrance.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Have a 2nd dead bolt that you can only lock from the inside for when you are home.
    If you are not around and someone wants to enter, forget about it.

    or

    Go back to a skeleton key, that will confuse people for a while.

    That's why we have an alarm system! Our house got jacked about 20 years ago...most of our stuff got cleaned out. We got an alarm after that and it makes me feel a lot better at night.
