I really shouldn't be giving advice but from what I have read around, maybe you should try hitting it more towards the bottom of the key and not dead center.

too much tension.

Also, have you considered the limited movement method? You do have to file the key a bit, but alot of people have had a higher success rate with it.

the tension you want to use is very minimal. The absolute least amount of tension that can be used to turn the key.

Where did you get the key / post pictures of it.

If we can eliminate the possibility of a bad key, then work on tension, etc.

The hammer and wooden spoon are more advances mores. That screwdriver you were using is really that best item for the job.

As Kristic suggested, consider minimal movement and/or filing a bit off the grooves of the key. An otherwise well made key can get fouled up if it's EXACTLY at a nine-cut and you have several very low cut pins in that specific lock.

Totally agree with everything that's been said this far.

Just touching on tension... it DEFINITELY looks like you're applying way to much. Your finger shouldn't be bent that much \ much force (at least mine isn't).

Alright... I can tell there's a bit of a confusion with the right tension \ strength to hit a key.

One of the MANY items on the chopping block for us is to make some more videos for a KW1 lock... when we get some time we'll upload one.

On a side note, if anyone else has a video of their technique feel free to share ;)

You need more practice on bumping as bumping is the process in which you get experience by practicing more and more.
