Key Bumping and Lock Picking: Secure Your Property

June 16, 2014


Spies and secret agents on TV used to use skeleton keys to enter into any door. But you may not realize, these keys are very real and still exist today. And criminals in your neighborhood may have access to them. Key Bumping is a very low-tech crime that, with the help of online websites, takes very little training and practice.


With a set of bump keys bought off of the Internet for as little as $30, bad guys can enter your home, mimicking your lock, and leaving NO EVIDENCE of entry.


The solution


Mul-T-Lock cylinders high-security locks provided by your locksmith service professional provide two independent locking mechanisms operated by a single specially designed Mul-T-Lock key. Your locks will be practically impossible to pick and no longer vulnerable to the infamous bump key.


Unauthorized Duplication


The Mul-T-Lock patented key system offers total key control. The Mul-T-Lock ID Card is given to you with your initial order. Your personal information will be securely kept on file, and keys can be requested in the future only by you and with your Mul-T-Lock ID Card. Give yourself peace of mind knowing there aren’t any unauthorized keys floating around.


Did you know there are tens of thousands of places where you can get a key duplicated in this country? How many locksmith shops, hardware stores, malls, and shipping/mailbox stores do you have in your area? They all have key duplicators. Without a key control system, you cannot be sure who has keys or how many keys have been made for your locks.


Forced Entry


To protect from this type of physical attack, we use Mul-T-Lock cylinders along with the Mul-T-Lock ISO9001 Grade 1 Deadbolt, the industry’s highest grade lock.


Thieves often force the door in or pry it open. They also resort to physically attacking the lock by drilling, hammering, wrenching or sawing the bolt.


This combination is built to withstand the demands of the toughest commercial applications, but is also highly recommended for residential use. Mul-T-Lock cylinders are drill-resistant.


Features of the ISO9001 deadbolt include:

  • Solid brass or bronze rotating trim rings

  • Solid steel doorframe reinforcer with 3 screws to protect against kick-in attack

  • Bolts are made of a strong steel alloy, containing a hardened steel roller to prevent cutting or sawing

  • Steel balls cover mounting screws to protect against drilling
