As of 08 August 2006 bump keys are banned on eBay.
Attempting to purchase\sell any such devices from eBay could result in losing money, having the item deleted, having your ACCOUNT DELETED.

Do not use eBay to buy\sell any bump keys as they are now cracking down.

I realized this too.
I will try contacting them by ebay/email if I can find them.

I don't think it's illegal yet... soon though;)

Hopefully they don't completely ban the bump key.
It really can be very useful...
It's MUCH cheaper than calling a locksmith to come out and pick \ bump the lock.

Before i found this site, like last week, i purchased a set of five bump keys off of ebay. I recieved them yesterday with no problems. They labeled them as bump/depth/999 keys and clearly stated that the shoulders and tips had not been modified. Just thought i would add that.

I've got alot of Info here... I'll post it tonight or sometime this week.

Alternatively, if someone makes a good one (with pictures \ tools needed \ measurements) I'd be happy to ship them a bump key for free. Here, in shop, we have (1 of each) SC4, KW10, M1, and a SC1 .

If you do decide to make one... It should be CUSTOM work. Please don't rip it off from another site as it would just be easier to link to that site. I'm just looking for a quality one made by one of our members.... If interested - let me know.

I bought on ebay a set of "bump" keys some days ago, but these keys apparently don't work... Does Ebay sell Depthkeys instead of bump keys? If it is the case, how can I convert my depth keys into bump... ?

Those are depth keys, but with a few minutes playing with a file, they'll be bump keys

Depth keys are sold on ebay all the time, usually sets of depths and spaces from 0 - 9. If someone buys just the 999 depth key then that is completely legitimate, as it is a locksmithing tool. Also remember that a key coded to 999 is a legitimate key that opens a lock with the pin setting 999, you cannot ban the sale of keys simply because it might be used for illegal purposes, if that were the case crowbars and guns would be banned, what I do think will happen is that sale and distribution of key blanks or specially coded keys such as 999 might be regulatated on the state or federal level, but of course this has not happened yet so it's completely legal to have and sell 999 keys. Bump keys are another thing, a 999 key with a filed down tip and shoulder in the posession of someone who is not licensed to use it is a felony I believe, and the sale of one across state lines in a federal offense.

Then it's not worth to try your luck looking for bump keys on e-bay then. It's more safe to buy them from bumpkey.us. Better safe than sorry..
