Bump Keys For Cars

It's one of the most common questions we get asked and, unfortunately, making or buying a bump key for a car is not possible. To understand why you need to first know the fundamental differences between a car lock and a lock that you might find on a residential building.

A lock that is found on an automobile is usually a wafer lock. These locks can not be bumped.

Locks found on residential locks can be bumped with a bump key.

There is one caveat to this general rule: older automobiles. Older cars sometimes will utilize pin tumbler locks which can be bumped.
