Do some more research and educate yourself about how bumpkeys work. They will work on MOST pin tumbler locks if a correct bumpkey and tecnique is used. It does take a bit of practice and patience.
Bumpkeys, in my experience (admittedly limited) work better on the "in knob" locks thand deadbolts. (Depending on the specific lock, of course). I beleive that's because, generally speaking, the knob locks have more "slop" i.e. larger tolerances built in than higher quality deadbolt locks.

Remember, this is just my experience/opinions and it's worth exactly what you paid for it! ;)

Lock bumping cannot be limited to deadbolts only, you can use it to many types of lock. Read some tutorials or watch some videos on bumping that how it works and then you'll understand that many types of lock can be bumped easily. And yeah practice is also important in that.
