Do you have a specific type or brand of lock that's hard for you to pick or bump? Just curious :-)

Usually, for less than $20, a locksmith can replace the original lock pins with "mushroom" pins, sometimes called spool pins, depending on the manufacturer.  While these pins will improve the resistance of the lock, they will not make it bump-proof. :)

The spools could be more about instilling a greater confidence in the security of the lock, or about patentability for key control. It may help prevent bumping, too. The angles the pins enter the keyway at are not any more drastic than on a Kaba, and the lock undoubtedly is of lower quality than a Kaba. But it is amazing to see.
