Why You Should Be Aware of Lock Bumping

Have you ever heard of the lock bumping technique?

The frightening facts:

  1. The lock bumping technique can be used to open 90% of American homes. This is because most homes use an old-style cylinder lock. Additionally, when a lock bumping key is used to break in, there is no sign of a forced entry or damage to the lock. This lack of evidence makes insurance companies very leery about paying for the claim. Furthermore, you could lose everything and not get compensated.
  2. Anyone can make bump keys in 5 minutes or less. Hence, children as young as ten have been caught.
  3. Safety experts say it’s time to change. Additionally, they are clear about this new digital home security threat. Its time to update your home protection!
