How to Crack Most Locks

Apparently this technique has been well-known among locksmiths for years: It's called Bump Keying and it basically allows someone to crack just about any lock in a matter of seconds using simple master keys to "bump" the pins in the lock. Worse still, it appears that the more expensive the lock, the easier it is to pick! There's even an Acrobat PDF document on the process HERE. The YouTube video is approx. 7 minutes complete with English subtitles and well-worth the watch. We may be in for a serious increase burglaries now that Newsweek recently detailed this in a mainstream news article. Wonder how insurance companies are going to treat these walk-in thefts? Yikes!
