*Bump Keys are ON SALE*
Pull out method

== BUT ==
I accidentally, one night, while not paying much attention pulled it out two clicks, bam it works about 75% of the time. Now I have pretty much mastered this lock. I can open it every other try at the worst. But I have switched back to the single pullout method (i did modify a few backup keys, can only get them to work with the double click pullout method) and cant do it for the life of me.
Also I have a few extra master locks that I cannot bump with the master key they gave me (the m1 key). They are either Master locks (cannot bump) or a gold finish lock with ACE etched in the side (cannot bump).
The one I can bump (mentioned above) has no markings on it on the top or bottom and that one can be done with ease with the m1 key.
I am kind of confused here.
I am also sorry if this doesnt make much sense, its almost 2am here and I am quite tired.

I also have been finding the master lock a challenge. However extra torque seems to help.

The disadvantage to this method rises from the increased force required to strike the key in the extra pin. This is more force than is normally required, and can make an otherwise easy to bump lock almost impossible, as too much speed is imparted upon the pins, which bounce back too quickly for the lock to be opened.
Every lock is different, however, so experimentation generally yields a method that works. So kudos for cracking your lock!

what exactly is a pullout method and can you bump a key without modifying it??
