The so called Bump Key Technology enables everyone the opening of standard lock cylinders in door locks. The lock is not damaged in the process.
Bump Keys can be manufactured for all current standard cylinders . They then fit the respective cylinder type of one manufacturer. All doors which are fitted with this type can easily be opened with some light beats. The tool to be used for this is the TOMAHAWK.
Especially for lock cylinders in the lower price segment of nearly all manufacturers the Bump Key Technology is successful.
The standard construction of lock cylinders simplifies the use of the Bump Keys. They are milled in a way that the V-form incisions lie in one layer and have a certain depth in dependence to the cylinder . Through the beat on the key the core pin press es the lower housing pins which are mounted on a spring to their knees, so to speak. As the key is held slightly twisted those pins bounce back exactly into the position they should be in for opening.
