Just curious, how many times have you broken a lock when using a bump key with hammer? You always have to exert the right amount of force to bump the lock. On my experience 70% of the time I break the lock when using a hammer. So I was wondering about your experience when using this kind of method, with a hammer.

I've never used a hammer in addition to bumper keys. And by the numbers that you are sharing with us I am pretty sure I won't use hammers in the future too :)

No, not really. If you break a lock when using a bump key with hammer then it's your lock that must have a problem. With or without a hammer you should be able to pick a lock with a bump key. The hammer is only used for easier exertion of force on the key. You can just imagine how hard it will be when you'r exerting pressure on a small object with just your hand.

70% is actually a lot...I'm not an expert but I saw some videos and read some of the posts here that you don't need to literally use a hammer in bumping...just a lighter tool and enough force can do the job...like the handle of screw driver...

I recommend buy a new hammer, this time of problem only arises when you have an unbalanced hammer or is made of poor quality plastic, so focus more on the quality of the hammer

Anyone with a round bump and has a balanced weight and made of high quality rubber plastic, flex plus bump hammer is an ideal choice,

breaking a lock because of bumping would be a disaster because it it is not all the time that you have a spare bump key. that is why there should always be an extra bump key. just in case. :)
