Bump Proof Locks

We have tested out many locks that claim to be bump/pick proof and have been more that pleased with the BiLock, our main focus is selling entry tool and we have a great staff that test locks with a wide variety of tool. BiLock performs by far over all the other locks we have test. BiLock is the only lock system we sell on and we stand behind the product.

BiLock is an internationally acclaimed high security locking system in use by government, university, and hospital facilities who demand the very best.  It is used by almost every major casino to protect their assets.  It is also available for the homeowner who does not want to compromise the security of their family.  

BiLock only offers pick and bump proof locks.  Most bump proof claims in online advertising are actually false. Don't waste your money on copycats or lies.  If you spend the time to research it, BiLock is the best high security value on the market.  

There are claims of people picking a BiLock cylinder.  In every case we have researched, the operating key was already in their hand and they refused to let us examine the actual lock.  This leads us to believe that the locks were "modified" to make it look easy to pick.  The locks manufactured by BiLock are to the highest standards and quality.  We have yet to personally witness any original BiLock cylinder being picked open without a key.   We donate our locks to picking contests around the world to maintain this confidence.

How to pick a lock?

This Blog is maintained by Bump My Lock, your one stop source for all your lock picking and       bump key needs.

The flatland model highlights the basic defect that enables lock picking to work. This defect makes it possible to open a lock by lifting the pins one at a time, and thus you don't need a key to lift all the pins at the same time. The first step of the procedure is to apply a sheer force to the lock by pushing on the bottom plate. This force causes one or more of the pins to be scissored between the top and bottom plate. The most common defect a inck lo is that only one pin will bind. Even though a pin is binding, it can be pushed up with a picking tool. When the top of the key pin reaches the sheer line, the bottom plate will slide slightly. If the pick is removed, the driver pin will be held up by the overlapping bottom plate, and the key pin will drop down to its initial position. The slight movement of the bottom plate causes a new pin to bind. The same procedure can be used to set the new pin.
Thus, the procedure for one pin at a time picking a lock is to apply sheer force, find the pin which is binding the most, and push it up. When the top of the key pin reaches the sheer line, the moving portion of the lock will give slightly, and driver pin will be trapped above the sheer line. This is called setting a pin.

1.) Apply a sheer force.

2.) Find the pin that is binding the most.

3.) Push that pin up until you feel it set at the sheer line.

4.) Go to step 2.

What is a Bump Key?

Bumping is a method of pin manipulation within locks. It is extremely effective and easy! This method is turning the world of security upside down. Locks, which would normally need to be drilled to access, can now be bumped open in seconds. To the user this means you can access and save many beautiful cylinders for you or your customers. A locksmith, repossessor, law enforcement officer, military professional, or other well qualified professional will find these keys to be one of the most effective tools in their tool collection.
How Does a Bump Key Work?
The first thing you'll need to open a specific lock is the bump key. Understand that not just any bump key will do. A bump key must be made for that specific model and brand of lock. It is not a master key that will open any lock, but rather a key that fits in the lock but will not open it under normal conditions.
First you must acquire the bump key. The easier method is to buy a pre-made bump key from . A 18 key set can be purchased for around 50 dollars. With a set such as that you could open almost any lock.
Using a bump key is pretty simple, but there are a few things you have to do to get the key to work properly. First, you fully insert they bump key into the lock to be opened. Next you pull the key back one click. Then you place a slight amount of pressure on the key by turning it slightly, or pressing against it, so when the tumblers are aligned they are not permitted to fall back to their original position. Finally, you strike the key with a bump hammer while you keep pressure on the key.The lock should easily open. It may take a few tries to open the lock.

Who would use a Bump Key?

I often get the question, "Who uses bump keys?", and the answer may surprise you.

The #1 purchaser of bump keys is law enforcement; they constitute approximately 35% of all bump keys sales. Law enforcement typically uses bump keys as an alternative to breaking a door down and running the risk of a law suit; with a bump key there is no damage to the lock or door. Bump keys give the law easy entry with no damage.

The #2 purchaser coming in at 25% belongs to Fire and Rescue.  When a human life is at stake and all that stands in the way is a locked door, bump keys grant a fast and reliable form of entry. Bump keys provide fire fighters and rescue workers fast entry to help save lives.

The #3 purchaser belongs to the real estate industry (20%).  Agents, brokers and property managers have spent a lot of money calling locksmiths just to unlock a house where the key was not returned, lost, or, the locks have been changed with no key provided. Bump keys save the real-estate industry and the individual agent money on locksmith fees.

The #4 at 15% is locksmiths.  Bump keys provide tools to locksmiths to help them complete their job with ease, having the right tools help locksmiths complete their job faster and the ability to book more jobs in their workload.

5% belongs to the enthusiast.  Entry tools have fascinated many people since the invention of the lock.  Bump keys are a huge resource in learning how to defeat a lock and give a better understanding of how locks work.

Bump keys rarely fall into the wrong hands from online sales.  All online sales are tracked and have to have a credit card or PayPal and a verified shipping address. The bottom line is bump keys are tools that when used properly provide results to aid law enforcement, fire and rescue, save money, and provide a learning resource.
