A friend sent me an email with links to a couple videos (see below) that are worth checking out as they highlight a growing problem – in that Bump Keys make it easy for the bad guys to break into your house or office without detection.
Not knowing if bump keys are fact or fiction, I reached out to another friend via email with a -> “hey did you see these videos – pretty wild if true ..??..”
Reply from Second Friend:
It’s probably true. Did you ever use lock picking tools? It works the same way. You jiggle a “pick” (like the bump key) inside the lock and wiggle, and it doesn’t take much effort to open any lock. When I moved into our previous house in town-x [ed.] one of the upstairs deck doors was locked with no key. I borrowed a lock picking set from a friend and had the thing open in 30 seconds. Then I was able to replace the lock with a new one.
