Security is most important when it comes to your home and office and possessions therein. If you happen to loose your keys and become locked out of your home or office, you usually call a locksmith in order to open the lock. The locksmith may also change the lock key combination to prevent any dishonest finder of the keys gaining access. It becomes a frightening and dangerous thing to find that an intruder has gained access into you home.
The majority of home owners use the best security in order to render themselves an environment that is as secure as possible.
There is a common danger that is not widely recognised in the community, namely lock bumping which can threaten the security of your home or office. Craigmore Locksmiths came assist in alleviating this threat, and listed below are a number of preventative measures in respect to lock bumping.
1. Lock bumping:
Intruders slide a "cop" key into the keyhole and tap the head of the key with a screwdriver or other similar tool. The tapping or bumping motion triggers the lock pins to split until the door opens. This technique doesn’t make a lot of noise and isn’t hard to do, and almost all tumbler locks are vulnerable to bumping. This means homeowners need to know how to prevent it.
2. Realities that the home owner should be aware of:
Some people may think it’s too hard for intruders to make a copy key. However, as long as the key matches a certain depth, intruders can copy a key. These keys are usually made at any key-making machine.
Lock bumping break-ins aren’t as easy to spot as more obvious ones. This means that you need to take the necessary steps to keep your home safe. Start by keeping your doors and windows locked all the time.
3. The following courses of action will assist preventing lock bumping and in keeping your premises secure:
Newer locks have a force and pick resistant feature. These locks have special cylinders that spin rather than turn. The spinning prevents the lock from turning and opening the door.
