Lock bumping: is your home at risk?

Lock bumping is a lock picking technique when a specially cut key is inserted into the lock and ‘bumped’ and the lock can be instantly opened.  This process emulates the use of a ‘lock pick gun’ used by locksmiths to open locks.  Unfortunately these ‘bump keys’ are available for purchase over the internet for only a few dollars and in the wrong hands your premises can be opened by intruders without leaving any visible sign of break in which leaves you very vulnerable.

How does lock bumping work?

What can I do to protect my home or business?

Things you do when at home or away can make a big difference to your safety and reduce the risk of having your home burgled or property stolen.

Your best defence against ‘bumping’ is to ask us to install antibump cylinders and locks or alternatively high security cylinders such as EVVA.
