    Lock Bumping - Are You Safe?

    I had never heard of this before but apparently it's been around for awhile. Very scary.


    Justice for Travis

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Wow! I'd never heard of that either!

    Here are two solutions I found.

    One is some shock-proofing substance called Pickbuster that you spray (?) into your lock to keep the tumblers from bouncing if the lock is bumped.

    The other is a device called Lockjaw that attaches to the inside of your door and keeps the deadbolt knob from turning so that even if the lock is picked, bumped or drilled, the bolt stays in place.
