*Bump Keys are ON SALE*
Why won't they work.

I got a set of bump keys, filed and everything, but they only work on 1 out of 6 locks that Ive tried, I have 5 of the most famous keys. Anyone have an idea why? could I have filed them too much?
I doubt you filed them too much. It is possible the the lock you are trying to has a "9" in the key. If this is the case, you could simply use a file to file deeper cuts into you bump key. This is also called a "10" key (even though there is no 'official' 10 cut) this works because its a bit deeper than the "9" key.
I'm working on a guide of how to file \ cut the keys... stay tuned.

That's true, he should make sure that it matches the specific lock to bump. sometimes key replacement will work.
Make sure the bump key matches the lock.
I was having no luck on one lock until i switched the key i was using. The first one fit in the lock, but still wasn't the right key (by length and # of pins).
