New Anti Lock Bump Standard – La Jolla Locksmith

Posted on Thursday, February 25, 2010 in Uncategorized

Master Lock  has created a higher standard in anti-lock-bumping door cylinders. In order to quickly assess the
impact this Standard could have, tests on 13 brands of lock cylinders using new ASTM criteria have been
conducted by professional locksmiths at the request of Master Lock Company,” said senior marketing manager
David Kearns.

In these series of tests, locks from only two manufacturers attained the highest level of protection – Grade 6 -
as specified in the Standard. However, locks from only one manufacturer of both door hardware and padlocks -
Master Lock Company – exceeded Grade 6 lock bump test criteria, thanks to patent-pending, BumpStop®
Advanced Cylinder Technology, Web Site:

“The development of these testing criteria by ASTM International recognizes the importance of lock bumping as
a broad-scale security issue, and emphasizes the need for industry standards with which to measure performance
of specific lock products,” said Master Lock Company’s Billy B. Edwards Jr., Certified Master Locksmith.

During the past few years, Edwards pointed out, extensive media publicity and internet “bump key” sales have
turned what once was a little-known (and legitimately used) locksmith technique into a mass-market problem. Bump
keys are readily available and the bumping procedure is so easy “an 11-year-old can do it.” According to safety
experts, 90 percent of American homes are at risk of having a lock bumped, enabling unauthorized entry. Untold
numbers of businesses multiply potential bump-caused security and property loss problems.
