I just found out about Bumpkeys, and this forum. And one of the first things I noticed is that there seemed to be a sudden rush of orders. I think it might be because of how I heard about Bumpkeys.

"It Takes a Thief" on the Discovery Channel. For anyone who doesn't know it's a show where 2 guys break into people's homes, steal a bunch of their stuff, and tape it so they can show it to the homeowners. Afterward they give everything back and give the homeowners a security overhaul.

Anywho, in an episode I saw recently they got into the house like they had a key to the place, the owners asked and he said he used his "bumpkey." That's how I heard about it. I figure a few hundred thousand other people who watch the Discovery channel might have heard about it there for the first time as well.

I don't know if that offers any insight but there it is.

I ordered the 11-key set on the spot about a week ago and am anxiously waiting its arrival.

I saw the same episode and started a thread on it. I was quite impressed at how quick Jon got that deadbolt open.

I haven't seen this program. It would be interesting to see it, though.

Thanks for pointing it out... and WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!

It's a really good show, I find it funny that the news made the whole bump key concept a "Real Big" security issue, when this guy jon breaks into homes like 95% of the time by kicking in a basement window, or finding an open window around the house somewhere....

Yeah, that episode is the first time I saw him be gentle with a locked house.

It's nice to see people getting aware of the bump keys through internet and tv programmes
