If you order bumpkeys from here and you put a key into the wrong lock what would happen? Would the key get stuck?

first of all it wouldnt even be ABLE to go in, unless ur such a arrogant person that u jammed the hell out of it into it... then YES it would obviously get stuck... lol... every "company" or brand i should say... has a fairly different design on their keys... making it pretty much impossible to fit another key into another lock... although ive seen some keys that have the same design pattern too... and they fit perfectly into it...
I never quit.... i wanna keep improving in everything i do in life... little by little everyday... i improve my skills...

Some keys WILL go into other locks, such as:

Kwikset will go into Weiser, weslock, dexter and a few others, how ever, the ones that kwickset will go into will not work the other way around sometimes, such as weslock which has a wider keyway, will not fit into a kwikset easily and thus probably will not work it. However, things that you must watch out for is depth, as sometimes 7's (as in kwikset's case) is not the deepest depth, and the spacing between cuts may be different.

Every key tells you that in which lock will they fit. If you forcefully inserting the wrong keys then it will stuck and may be get jammed.

Well, according to what I have read here somewhere in the forum that as long it is the same length and it fits in the lock, that bump key can be use to bump that lock.

Thanks for this interesting observation, never knew that before
