it was a plain old home lock, it took 3 bumps using the pullout method, i like this stuff, i think i have a new hobby for a while. The set is the eleven key set from bumpkey.us it had the main keys. the only problem i have is i cant seem to bump schlage keyways, the tumblers on my test keyway seem to to have any give to em.

I ordered the 11 key set around March 1, and got it on the 16th. Very nice work, and quality Ilco keys, every one of them.

Got copies made today in different places, so I ended up with less than quality keys to work with, so for those who don't already know, do NOT get copies made at Walmart. It's safe enough as those people are generally idiots, though.

Walmart uses crappy Axxess brand keys as well as their own brand, plus their machine is some weird custom rig that simply doesn't cut accurately. They couldn't do the WR5 worth a damn, the peaks were nearly non-existant.

Since they didn't have most of the blanks I needed, I went to a local True Value store and got a few more made. They wouldn't even attempt the WR5, but they did the Y1 and KW10 with Ilco blanks.

Had to go to one more store for the rest, and still didn't get the SC20 copied, as it's a highly popular key in my area apparently. They also use Ilco blanks, and did the WR5 and SC1 pretty good, but I doubt the WR5 will work. If you line up the copy with the original, shoulder to shoulder, they don't line up, but if you line them up tip to tip, they do. Weird since both the original and the copy are the very same Ilco blank. Maybe it will work, I don't know.

Anyway guys, just so you know, Bumpkey.us does sell quality products. You will get your order, just be patient. It's a fairly new company with a few employees, and they are swamped with orders.

And for your own sanity, be sure to get your keys copied only where they use Ilco blanks or another high quality brand.

Hi. I'm a beginner and I'm curious. Where did you get your keys? Is it sold by set only? Or you can buy by piece? I'm thinking of just making one. But as a beginner I think it would be better for me to buy.

I hope you can still read this so that you can provide some updates about the condition of the bump keys that you have ordered a few years ago. It would help a lot of people if they will know how long the bump keys lasts.

That would really be helpful...there are many people who are coming to this forum before ordering that is why the more feedback, the more reasons people will have if they will or will not purchase...

Schlage locks are somewhat offer resistance to bumping though nowadays locks that use pin-tumbler system like Schlage are also vulnerable to bumping using minimal moment method
