Prevent Lock Bumping
If your home’s locks are pin tumbler locks, then My Locksmith recommends you upgrade to high-security or smart locks. There are two types of keys for pin tumbler locks: Schlage and Kwikset. These locks can be subjected to what is known as lock bumping. Lock bumping is a terrifying technique for bypassing obsolete pin tumbler locks.
Pin tumbler locks operate using several spring-loaded pins with a second pin stacked on top. Once the key is inserted, the top pins align with the shear line of the plug. The plug is in the cylindrical lock most standard locks use. When the top pins are aligned with the shear line, then the cylinder or plug can be turned, which unlocks the door.
However, these pins can be manipulated in a way that can turn into a home invasion or burglary. A bump key is used to manipulate the pins of the lock. The key is inserted into the lock one pin or notch short of full insertion. The user will then hit the end of the key with a heavy impact. Subsequently, the top pins jump upward and catch on the shear line so the lock can be turned.
Lock bumping can be done in a matter of seconds with the right bump key. If you are not sure if your locks are pin tumblers, then give My Locksmith a call today. It is estimated that more than 95% of home locks are capable of being lock bumped. Be proactive and upgrade your locks to better versions. Smart locks and other high-security locks provide the perfect amount of security.
