Hello all
My bump keys (UK) only have FOUR grooves as the pin nearest the entry only needs to go UP, not DOWN. I find this very useful as any broken keys I've used used to break along the bottom of the cut nearest the head. I call them 'Candy Keys' as (in theory) they have a tooth missing. I've had a lot of greif on another site saying I'm wrong and it's impossible. However I do it all day long so?????
What do you all think? :?:
UK users check out

I don't fully understand.

Things have changed a lot at UKBK since bumpfiend was there. But a five pin lock can be bumped with only four grooves if you use a ground down shoulder as the last peak and the tip as the first. That's 5 peaks in total.

It sounds like it works similar to the pull out method. The tip moves the first pin and the back of the 4th cut moves the 5th pin.
