We all have keys to locks on significant doors: home, office, car, perhaps a mailbox, maybe a parent’s or friend’s home. We all open and close locks all day long and we hardly ever think about it; until someone gets past our security. In the movies, burglars and detectives access locks; with amazing speed and skill, sometimes with nothing more than a hairpin or a paper clip.

Most of us are familiar with the common deadbolt lock installed on many residences. Our experts can tell you that actually picking a lock is more complicated than Hollywood makes it appear. With this type of lock, a bolt or latch is embedded in the door; lining up with a notch in the door frame. When you turn the lock, the bold extends into the plate installed in the door frame. By connecting the door and the frame in this way, the door won’t move until the bolt is retracted. The cylinders inside the lock must be aligned to allow the bolt to retract or extend. This is what happens when turn your key inside the lock – it aligns the cylinders. Imagine how difficult it is to get those cylinders to move if you don’t have the proper key for it.
The difficulty of picking lots could account for a newer practice known as ” Bump Keying “. In this method, burglars used a false key, or “bump key,” to put pressure on the back of the lock; causing the cylinders to respond as if the proper key was in place. This security threat became more known in the past decade or so, and lock makers have responded by creating locks that thwart bump keys.
