"Security flaw in your locks?’ asks a recent Newsweek.com headline. The term “Hackers” is typically associated with those who attempted to break into computer systems. Now Hackers are people attempting to defeat a wide range of protected systems – including the locks on your doors.

Medeco, the industry’s leading high security lock manufacturer, has expanded its’ acclaimed educational training module to explain the vulnerability that many locks face to a bumping attack. This training is offered to Crime Prevention associations and security dealers.

Medeco is commonly known as the ‘bump proof lock’ by those who view picking as a sport. Standard locks utilize a single locking point, while high security locks such as Medeco utilize multiple locking technologies. To see why Medeco is not vulnerable to this type of attack, a short video is available at www.medeco.com in the Interactive Security Solutions link. "

Perhaps more lock manufactures in the future will make locks harder to bump.

There is a locksmith at some of the larger shows that has had other locksmiths bring Medeco locks that are "pick proof" and he defeated them with a bump type key that he had made. At one show he defeated 25 in a row without breaking a sweat. The sweet part is that he sells these keys... but only to locksmiths.

And no, I do not have one. :cry:
Bump it to the next level.

I agree with you, as the new technology expands the locks should be more advanced and harder to bump. But up-till then enjoy bumping
