Ive been toying around with lock picking for about 6 months now. I just recently found out about bumping though. Ive been able to pick my apt mailbox lock for awhile now, and the front door. But can those small mailbox type of locks be bumped? I don't have any bump keys yet, but plan on ordering some from here soon.

Do you guys sell any small keys that would also work on my apt mailbox that I could practice with? Or is that type of lock not 'bumpable'? Ive been told not to practice too much on house locks, or locks that you depend on. So I would like to try it on everything that I can, to switch it up a little, and for the practice! Thanks for the help! :D

The small keys that you're referring to... If the Post Office owns the box, mailing such a key would most likely be a federal crime. Even possessing a key that's not yours might be a crime awell.

If it's just a box where you can buy the key yourself, and the P.O doesn't own the box.. just have someone make a copy of the key and then attempt to make a bump key. We've got some info here on the site that should help you with that endeavor.... just search :D

Don't practice on your used lock. I always suggest you to take any unused lock or purchase to practice.
