Lock bumping explained

Lock bumping is a disturbingly common lock vulnerability.
It is a simple break-and-enter technique. It’s quiet, fast and almost unnoticeable.
It is on the rise. The Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded 216,886 unlawful entry with this intent offence in 2010 alone.
How lock bumping works?
Lock-bumping break-ins are simple, effective and common.
Lock bumping is a simple technique for bypassing the security of a pin-tumbler locks – the locks most commonly used for residential and business doors.
Bumping a lock simply involves inserting a customized key into the lock, then tapping the key in the right at the right moment to cause the lock to open. Unlike brute force (such as crowbar), it makes very little noise, and leaves no signs that a break-in even occurred.
What’s more, these customised keys are easy to produce. Lock-bumping has become so popular that one company sells a lock bumping tool, and many websites openly sell lock bumping keys for a variety of locks.
