Well as our knowledge related to bump keys and lock picking techniques is increasing day by day, on the other hand lock makers also have their eyes on us and they have developed some great tricks to make us work harder on our lock picking techniques. They have modified the shapes of driver pins like mushroom, serrated and spool. The purpose of these modifications in shapes is to cause the pins to false set low. These modified drivers have nullified methods like vibration picking but they haven't yet complexioned techniques like scrubbing and one pin at time. But you may feel some great difficulties at first while trying to pick such locks. The key to picking locks with modified drivers is recognizing incorrectly set pins. A mushroom driver set on its lip will not have the springy give of a correctly set driver.Practice recognizing the difference.
