Lock Bumping

Has anyone seen this video? It's pretty scary how easy it seems for a criminal to get into your home. A friend emailed the link to this YouTube video today and I thought I would share it. I'm so glad I have an alarm system!

My intention wasn't to scare anyone, it was only to make you aware so you may protect your own. I also am not posting this to help would-be criminals learn a new trick. If you watched the entire video you would see that it didn't describe how to cut the bump keys correctly. I just wanted to clarify that before I get screamed at in my comments.

Great Scott.....

I am SO glad that we have an alarm system, too! And I have been annoyed at that system so many times (that mind numbing "beep-beep-beep" sound until you punch in the code). Now, I am grateful for it. Thanks for sharing.

That makes me want to actually use my alarm system.

You know...
Lock bumping or not... Best to have good neighbours...
My cousin was just robbed...Not by lock bumping... But by someone kicking the FRONT door down... in the middle of the day....No one noticed??? and he lives in a middle class neighbourhood, in the city, where the houses are close together... They robbed his wife of all her fine family precious pocessions... leving all the 'cheap' stuff he gave her through the years...
