    Bump Key (MUST READ/VIEW)

    Undisputable proof that your best home defense weapon is your alertness, a dog, and a firearm. This is unbelievable.

    For those that can't follow the subtitles.... they have figured out a way to machine any key to open any lock. Without a trace. Basically, unless you have a dog or good ears... you wake up in the morning and your TV and electronics are gone and your door is locked. And your insurance company laughs at you. And that's assuming all they want is your toys.

    Good Looking Out SixBravo

    That's a new one on me.

    Thankfully I've got a canine with good ears and a great home alarm system but, know many folks who do not.

    That's good valuable information. I hope that everyone at least has a good heavy sliding bolt lock on a high quality door as additional/added security when they are home.

    Bad stuff.

    When my kids were little, we installed the apartment chain locks at the top because as soon as they could reach the deadbolt, they would flick it and wander out. Now that they are a little older, I guess we'll have to start using them again. Not foolproof, but just one more step.

    the Insurance thing was specific to the country that the video was shot in. In America (at least for me) It's just a police report and inventory and you get your check. It DOES make me think about those door bars / doorknob braces.

    This method is very similar to 'raking', which uses a lock pick that you use to rake the pins in the tumbler in a fashion similar to the way billard balls hit each other. It causes the pins in the tumbler to bounce & with a little rotational pressure it will open most locks quickly. With this method you are just bouncing all the pins at once & it doesn't require but a little practice.

    Most locks are just to keep honest people honest.......

    Actualy it would be considered closer to a snap pick or pick gun than raking , I have to set up the key cutter but i needed to do it anyway , ill let yall know if its as easy to make/use them as they imply . I could do it with a file except i am just lazy and need to set up the cutter anyway lol .
