Lock picking made VERY easy.

Although this should be of interest to everyone in the industry, I think it is especially important that SS wash owners be aware of it.

There is a relatively new, easy way to open most standard security locks. It is called "lock bumping" It requires no special tools or training. It just requires a simple modification of a key that will fit in the lock's keyway. The bumpkey can be hand made with a file in a few minutes. Or, for about five bucks you can buy a bump key off the internet. with a little practice you can open locks, including door locks in less than a minute with no signs of damage or forcible entry.

I will try to manufacture a couple of bump keys for locks common in our industry in the next few weeks and report back.

BTW, before you chastise me for publicly posting this, just google "lock bumping" or look on youtube and you'll see that this is no great trade secret. The genie is out of the bottle. Our best weapon is to knowledge, to be aware of this and try to find ways to counteract it.
