Most people aren’t familiar with bump keys, but they are uniquely cut keys designed to open a full range of a manufacturer’s locks. A bump key is cut to work with a specific manufacturer, but can then open all the locks made by it whose intended keys have the same or fewer number of pins (also called waves) as the bump key. So one bump key can get someone into almost all of a manufacturer’s line of locks.
The bump key has a modified wave pattern, with most pins quite low except the last at the far end of the key. The pins are low so when someone puts a bump key in a lock and puts pressure on it, along with a quick bump up, the pins can for that quick second click into the wave patter of lock. This will only happen for that quick second of the bump, so the user also has to rotate the key at the same time to get the door open.
The typical home door lock is made by one of a handful of manufacturers, so you might believe you can’t protect yourself against the bump key. You can and your locksmith can probably help you. One approach a company can take is to remove the basic lock and replace it with a high security lock manufacturer. These higher security locks aren’t susceptible to a bump key.
You can also convert to a keyless access system. A locksmith company can design and install a digital or mechanical door security system. If your doors have no locks, no bump key can open them.
If you prefer not to have a keyless security system, you can have another line of defense behind a key lock system that might get penetrated by a bump key. A company can likely assist you install an alarm system that can go off even if the door gets opened.
