So you're looking for a bump key...

The easiest place to get a bump key from is right here... right off the internet. I would avoid using e-bay as you never really know what you are going to get. And if you get a piece of junk you're stuck.

A locksmith probably won't cut you a bump key if you ask for it by name, and if you give him the "code" for a bump key (debatably, "10,10,10,10,10" for most key types or "7,7,7,7,7" for a Kwikset, though some would say 9s or 6s), you're definitely going to raise his eyebrows.

By The Way... the reason why they say a 10-10-10 key is better is because if you have a pin that requires a 9 cut depth then when you pump it you are more likely to knock the bottom pin past the sheer line. So, the easy solution is to just go a little bit deeper.

Once we compile enough reviews and are actually able to test out the keys from different sites, we'll report back.
