As you discovered, you put tension on the key in the direction that you want the key to turn. This can be important when dealing with locks that turn in either direction... no point in putting a lot of time and effort into bumping a locked lock in the locking direction!

Some locks will only bump in the 'wrong' direction....a plug spinner will fix the issue.
Bump on!!!!

According to me and my method, a tension in the same direction is needed while turning the key. Direct tension on the key will work efficiently for successful bumping.
