Lock bumping... is your home really safe??

Oh dear. I just ran across this on April's blog (thank you, April, for sharing this!!!). I find it rather alarming and I think you will, too.

Definitely part of making a house a home is making it a safe home!!!!

UPDATE: Mrs. Pear has kindly shared with me that Kwikset makes a "SmartKey" that helps protect against lock bumping. Thank you, Mrs. Pear, for sharing this!!!

I'm glad you have posted this. I hope everyone can make their homes safer and be more informed.

I tried to reply to one of your messages you left and then realized it was a noreply address. I'm bummed.

Mrs U

Please email me at the usual place - there is a brand of locks that carries a bump proof deadbolt.

But it is always important to remember that in most cases the lock is not the weakest point- the wood in the door jam is.
