I don't know but the last time my house was broken into they go over 8,000 worth of my stuff, including two computers and the tv. The time before they got the tv, one computer and the microwave. Both times in during the day, so I guess that people don't think it is uncommon for people to carry things out of houses and into what they are driving. The third time I was home when they tried to kick in the back door, I surprised them and the four teenagers ran like hell, to their suburban and took off.

theft always happens mostly during the day.

you can use a old trowaway camera for a door-knop shocker

also watch hacking the system on natgeo, they have some good tips on home security

So this is for some sort of lock they stopped making sometime in the 17th century, or what? This sort of lock doesn't exist in the United States.

author

It's a Chinese lock. I have one on my door, only more shiny and new. It doesn't have the wheel, though. The lock is very good, as it has 2 deadbolts, and another lock at the top.

thats a hell of a lot of security!

Hey, you never know when someone's gonna steal your 52 inch LCD HD TV. ;)

author
bobt4 (author)LemonyPotatoes2009-06-11

lol but i would just replace the door for a heavier 1 and add 2 or 3 not 4 or 5

author
LemonyPotatoes (author)bobt42010-11-02

Well since I posted this comment Ive changed my door :\

my dad's workplace has locks with those kind of keys. You are partially right though. they are very uncommon in the U.S. I never saw one until my dad got his current job.

i would go to hobby lobby or something and get a alumilite casting kit. its like $12-17 but it comes with everything you need to cast w/e.

My desk at work uses this kind of key, but I had never seen another one like it until now.

To easily add some strengthening you could use 2 part epoxy resin. I like the idea of using old credit card, possibly a couple of pieces epoxied together!

And while it breaks in your key hole.....

what happens if it breaks in the lock

author
nabzaf (author)josefu02008-08-13

ok if it breaks off just burn the lock. it was made out of wood. the people who make a copy for keys are the one who found your keys made the copy and now will follow you to your home and break in while you are out

author

josefu0 (author)nivaneus2008-07-22

no for real what happens if it breaks then how could i get it out

author
nivaneus (author)josefu02008-07-22

Well you could probably get it out using a variety of different tools, if all else fails you can always take the lock apart to get it out. Sorry about my last comment i couldn't resist.

THis is pretty cool, everyone that is dissing the locks tolerance levels needs to check their house locks, most people in the US have Kwikset (or something like it) which have fairly low tolerance levels themselves. This works for a few reasons which seem to have been covered, most keys if duplicated onto a Popsicle stick would mos likely cause it to be to week. However, the concept is sweet and its not to say someone couldn't make a nice knock off with aluminum and a dremel. There are keys like this in the US, i believe some bike locks now utilize this style key, and interestingly enough it relatively difficult to duplicate, the machine required to do the precise work on the right key blank is rather expensive, i'm not sure the local locksmith even carries the keys. Crappy locks have always been easy to bypass, but i like this nonetheless, the idea of getting into a house with a Popsicle stick is rather amusing. Still, high security locks are where its heading, so people need to start exploiting those. Ultimately, we can hope for the highest security possible and we will know no one can bypass our security with the aid of a sticky Popsicle stick. :)

Bump keys don't work on high security locks

author
triples (author)laxplayer_132007-11-30

Actually, bump keys work on 90% of locks, and since high security locks are often more sensitive, they are actually more likely to transfer the momentum of the key through the pins.

author
laxplayer_13 (author)triples2007-11-30

High security locks, although possibly more sensitive to the properties of physics, have many other properties that prevent them from being bumped, i will not go into the details, if you wish me to just ask. As I said in my fist post, a majority of locks are still kwikset which have very light tolerance, then there are essentially kwiksets and schlage are probably your most common locks, maybe sargent as well. All of these locks can be bumped, absolutely, but again High security locks like Medeco can not be bumped.

author
evanwehrer (author)laxplayer_132008-08-03

High security locks are the easiest to pick you just need a special tool. Its like a screwdriver and you turn a knob until it works.

dalbyman (author)laxplayer_132008-01-08

do you mean spool pins? if im wrong please educate me!

author
laxplayer_13 (author)dalbyman2008-01-10

Spool pins are in some locks, master padlocks and can be added to locks if your really want them. They do not prevent bumping, they make picking and shimming more difficult because they allow for the cylinder to spin and bind when the pins are not aligned at the shear line. You should be able to find information on how bumping works, but if you want more information i will be happy to explain how it works.

Won't work with some locks that depends on the edge of the key, not the holes...

Is there a way to make a bump key without using a old key? Is it possible to use a popsicle stick?
