I agree that a bump key proof lock is important...but what if the owner of the bump key proof lock is the one who needs a bump key for his own door lock???haha

and for the fact that it is plastic then probably it would break once it is bumped right???

based on the video, it seems durable enough for bumping. It's just that the "valley and teeth" looks like it could be easily worn out.

That is a possibility....it may still be useful but it may not last long...

 A thin 3D printed plastic bump key can be made and it does function. Not sure how long these keys can last though, but sometimes all you really need is a one time use when trying to open a specific, tricky lock.So expecting these keys to work for several times is a far cry, its an easy and effective method but is not reliable and durable when it comes to use one key extensively.

3d printed bump key looks cool. anything 3d printed looks cool for me. but when it comes to its function, I don't think it will be as useful as the original.

Yep not as durable as the regular bump key. Probably won't last..
