Bump Proof Locks
You have likely heard people, police and other security experts in particular, advise that you should have “bump-proof” locks in place to secure your home, business, and other possessions. If you have not heard about these locks, prepare yourself as you are in for a bit of a shock. The actual device used is a bump key, and they were created without any nefarious intent in mind. Originally they were developed for first responders and security experts to affect entry when picking a lock is not practical. Even for an experienced Lake Mary locksmith, it can take a while to pick a lock. It is not as simple as the movies portray the process.
A bump key is designed with low peaks and wide valleys. You know… the jagged edges of all of the keys that you see. These cuts are made not to properly align with the lock as a proper key would, but to move the pins when force, e.g. a “bump,” is administered.
Here is the shocking part, and why you want to be certain that your door locks are “bump proof.” Sets of these kinds of keys can be purchased. Your Lake Mary locksmith can test your door locks for this deficiency, and advise you on the best replacement security locks for your needs as, sadly, most locks will not deflect this.
Bump keys can even be made with some simple tools and a brief education on how locks function. Yikes! Not everyone has the best intentions, as crime statistics reveal, and having the best locks that you can will give you peace of mind whether you are away from home, or snuggled in at night.
