Protect your home from the "bump key" lock pick - October 18, 2006, 10:19 AM

In short, criminals are buying a key off the internet for a very cheap price that will fit any cylinder lock. The criminal inserts the key into your lock, hits it with any type of device, (hammer, rubber mallet, etc) and it instantly pops the lock.
If your door has only this type of lock(cylinder), you can be at risk. Your best bet is to purchase a bump key resistant lock, and/or have more than one lock type for your door.

Below is the news video:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...47818181114423


This isnít a new technique, but because of the national attention, this type of criminal behavior has been on the rise.

I saw this a while back BBC was doing the report. Tried it on my own lock and couldnt get it to work, But I used a home made bump key, which probably wasnt cut right.

They do sell bump proof locks:

Medeco makes many bump proof locks.

My mothers house had a pop lock for the front door. We actually did have a break-in. They tried all doors, despite the screaming they heard. We all ended up running out of the house to a neighbors. That sucked. Good Ol Dale City...


Wow. Just..................wow.

You can get in mine with a credit card if the dead bolt isn't on. Sucks! On the upside, when my neighbor was locked out, my son (13) went over asked her for a drivers license and got her front door right open! He told her "My mom showed me how to do this"

bump keying is nothing new, its just *way* over-hyped right now.
the guy being interviewed goes by the name, "Deviant Ollam".
I've met him several times and he's a really intelligent guy, and even he
will tell you that a criminal is more likely to smash a window or kick down
the door than try to pick the lock.

if you want to see a presentation he gave last year on the basics of
lockpicking, go here:
http://www.shmoocon.org/2006/presentations.html
and look for his presentation under January 15th.

bump keying is becoming a fad because of all of the media attention.
if someone wants to get into your house, they will - its still much easier
to smash a window, or kick in a door than it is to find out what kind of
lock you have on your door, leave to buy a blank for it, file that blank down
into a bump key, and then come back and try to bump the lock.

hell, picking the vast majority of home door locks is a trivial process.
buy a beginner's pick set for $20, practice for a half hour, and you'll
be able to open a hell of alot more locks than you would with a single
bump key.

you can spend the cash on a bump resistant lock, or you can take your
current lock(s) apart, replace a pin, and make it bump resistant
yourself for a fraction of the cost.

OB motorcycle story: I lost my keys in maryland over the summer while
I was out on my bike. I got back home, called my apartment's lockout
services number, and was let in to my apartment. I had a spare apartment
key, but not a spare garage key, so I grabbed my pick set, went down to
my garage, and in a few minutes had picked open the side door to my
garage. went in, opened up the big door, put my bike away, closed up
and locked the door. the next day I had all the locks replaced.

bypassing locks is a trivial issue. bump keying is one aspect that is just
getting hyped by the media right now.

more info on lockpicking:

I'm on there with the same userid I use here.

Spud and Mekanik thanks for the info. Your house is kinda like a motorcycle if they really want in it doesn't matter what you do they will break in! I used the lighter and file method once to get into my house with a blank key and was in in 20 minutes which make me feel warm and fuzzy all over!

Discovery Channel has an entertaining show on burglars/home security called 'It Takes A Thief'...or something like that. Basically they break into someone's house and expose alot of security risks, then they give the people a security upgrade. It shows alot of nice technology and tricks, but people still need to do the simple things like locking the windows and doors
