*Bump Keys are ON SALE*
Help with this lock
Posted 04 June 2007 - 10:25 AM
We purchased a complete set this morning. Does anyone know if they can be used on this lock? Unfortunately I dont know the make of the lock. It is on a metal box on the wall in the basement of a house we purchased. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am check my alarm box and my storage cases like that.
As for your order being shiped, they have been experiencing delays due to the large order influx.
It takes about 2 weeks, give or take a few days.
I will get back to you about the key in just a few minutes

It would, however, be an extremely easy pick. If you desperately need it open, take a pair of nail clippers that have the folding file on the back, and insert the file portion into the lock. Quickly (but gently!) rock the file up and down while applying light turning pressure to the lock. It may take anywhere from five to ninety seconds, but it usually works... assuming that the file is longer than the key, and that the lock is a wafer lock.
Best of luck!

Just a reminder... if using the file, be gentle... too much force will just land you with a broken lock!

If its a pin tumbler lock, even if you had a bump key, bumping on a metal door would cause the energy of the bump to transfer to the door and cabinet...instead of transfering to the pins. The lock needs to be attached to a solid surface...wooden door etc.
Picking the pins would be the way to go....very light tension.
