What is Lock Bumping?

Lock bumping is a lock picking technique for opening a lock using a specially crafted “bump key”. One bump key will work for all locks of the same type.


How will I know if any locks have been “bumped”?

Unfortunately, there will be no visible evidence that a lock has been bumped.  Lock bumping does not do any damage to the lock so there will be no signs of forced entry. 

An intruder can gain access to your home and then lock the door on their way out.  The obvious signs of a “traditional” break and enter like smashed glass or broken doors will not be there.


I’ve never heard of lock bumping before. Is it a real threat?

Absolutely.  Due to extensive media coverage along with information and video tutorials available on the internet this phenomenon is spreading all over the world, and quickly.  With the right knowledge and a simple home-made bump key, an intruder could quietly enter your home in a matter of seconds.


Is there any way to protect myself and my family?

Of course.  At Anti Bump Locks Australia we specialize in fitting out homes and business with locking mechanisms that are resistant to lock bumping at competitive prices.
