Rising Concerns for Security: Bumping

"If your home is protected with an ordinary lock, it may not do you much good,” says the National Crime Prevention Council.

The council is concerned about the recent trend in home burglary – bumping. This raises security concerns to both business and homeowners alike. Bumping is a technique used to manipulate pins inside the locks and gain entry by using special keys.

According to FBI Latest Crime Stats, “There were an estimated 8,277,829 property crimes reported by law enforcement. Financial losses suffered by victims of these crimes were calculated at approximately $14.3 billion”.

Should You be Concerned?

• Bump key crimes have recently been popping up in States like Virginia, Texas, and Florida.
• Many regular locks are vulnerable to lock bumping
• Bump keys are sold online making it accessible for anyone to get a hold of them
• Many how-to videos are available online demonstrating how to bump open a lock

Why We Recommend Mul-T-Lock 

One of the best locks that are bump-proof is Mul-T-Lock. They are designed to stand-up to most forced and unauthorized entry. Mul-T-Lock offers the best protection against bumping, lock picking, prying, and drilling. Its advanced design of telescopic pins (pin within a pin) is designed to withstand attempts of picking. Unlike most locks, Mul-T-Lock cannot be bypassed by a credit card or screwdriver.

Mul-T-Lock also offers extra security as they can only be duplicated by authorized Mul-T-Lock dealers. In addition, the official key order card must be provided to allow duplication.

Bumping crime has recently been reported in States like Virginia, Texas, and Florida. According to ABC News, polices are currently concerned about the rise of bump key burglary.
