Do you use the same technique to bump locks mounted upsidedown and doorknobs where you insert the key upsidedown? What about a door handle where the keyhole is sideways?

thanks,

It might take a bit of getting used to,but yes, the same theory applies to bumping a lock that's 'upside down'.

Most Euro locks are installed upside down and some people say it is easier to pick them (depending on the lock). And so it is still possible to bump them.

And what about profile cylinder's using Abloy's Protec line? A bit of clarification should be added.

Yes, that locks could be easily bump-able as other locks. With my personal experience I can say that locks installed upside-down can be bumped with the same technique as used for others.
