Lock Bumping History

In the 1970's, locksmiths in Denmark shared a technique for knocking or bumping on a lock cylinder while applying slight pressure to the back of the lock plug.


When the pins jump inside the lock cylinder, the plug is able to slide out freely and disassemble the lock quickly.


The use of a bump key was not introduced until some time later and was first recognized as a potential home security or lock security issue around 2002-2003 in Europe.


Now lock bumping keys are sweeping the internet and UK homes.
