KwikSet Security Non-Pickable--gives new meaning to the term oxymoron.

If it is a KwikSet, it can most likely be picked and bumped unless it is an electric/push button type without a keyway.
Bump it to the next level.

Does it say pick resistant? Because kwikset should rename itself 'Pickset'....because an embryo can pick their crappy locks :biggrin: :biggrin:

The only locks that are really "pick-proof" cost between ten and thirty times what a Kwikset does. If it's pick resistant, it means that if you fart while looking at it, it probably won't open. Aside from that, picking, bumping and tennis balls all do a fabulous job at getting them open.

It's a load of bull. I guarantee you that it is not only quite pickable, but also bumpable.

I just bought a Kwikset deadbolt to practice on and for some reason I can't pick or bump this lock. I'm new to picking and bumping but, I've been successful until now. The deadbolt says "pick resistant 5-pin system" and is part #22416-001. Any help would be appreciated.

First, Welcome to the forum! :banana:
Second, we invite you to introduce yourself in THIS THREAD

Third, it would seem '22416-001' (to me at least) is a product SKU and is not actually the make of the Kwikset key.
If you're having problems bumping SEARCH AROUND and see what you can come up with. I know it's been covered many times before. The main thing you want to adjust is the TENSION that you actually place on the key. If it's too much, it will not bump. The same is true for too little tension.
