Bump Proof Locks


You lock your front door every time you go out, but what if anyone could buy a key on the internet, walk up, and open your locked door in five seconds flat? They can. The keys are called bump keys, and they can open most locks made by a single manufacturer, e.g. a bump key made from a Kwikset key blank will open most Kwikset locks. Since American homes mostly use the same lock manufacturers (Kwikset, Weslock, and Baldwin), a thief could break into thousands of homes with just a couple of bump keys and a hammer. It’s estimated that 90% of American homes are vulnerable to bump keys.

Fortunately, lock manufacturers now offer bump proof locks that use a variety of features to make them difficult, if not impossible, to bump: trap pins, top gapping, shallow drilling, and more. Pop-A-Lock of Clearwater can guide you through the full range of bump key proof locks, which range in style and price, and install the best bump proof lock for your home and budget.

If you’re worried about the cost of installing a bump proof lock, Pop-A-Lock can also offer more affordable alternatives, like new locks that fit into your old lockset and reduce installation costs, and a special type of rekey that makes your current lock less easy to bump.
