Houston Locksmith lock picking has always been a professional's easiest way to get into a home, but it took some training and experience to gain the skill. Technicians knew of a technique called lock bumping, but most preferred picking as it demonstrates their skills-and locksmiths like to demonstrate their skills. Lock bumping uses a precut key that is "bumped" by a screwdriver or other tool. The bumping forces the pins within the lock to their shear line, and the lock is free to turn. With the right key, lock bumping is easy to do and the technique was made publicly available via the internet. This gave anyone with a few dollars and an internet connection access to over 90% of the homes in America and poses a great risk to home security. High security locks have always been available to combat this problem but only at considerable expense. In A Flash Lock Service is offering for the month of December a limited 30% off on any Kwiket Smart Key Deadbolts or entrance keyed locks. This offer expires on 12/31/2012
In the past few years, two very popular lock manufactures, Kwikset and Schlage have released products that in our opinion represent a giant leap forward in home lock technology. These products were introduced to solve the lock bumping issue, but the technology makes the locks extremely difficult to pick. They are also rekeyable by the homeowner. Installing these locks will significantly improve a home's security, whichever brand that chosen.
But which, in a professional's opinion is the better lock? After all, new locks are a considerable investment and if going to invest in new locks, which one to buy? Both make similar claims; that they are bump and pick resistant. For years have chosen Schlage locks represented the better, higher quality product, but now that has changed since working with both of these locks for several months.
Both brands make good on their promise of bump and pick resistance. Although the Schlage has been successfully picked by a few of technicians it is much more difficult to do. The Kwikset product has not been successfully picked. Anecdotal data agrees with the results from a lock picking challenge at the 2012 Associated Locksmiths of America Expo in Orlando (full disclosure, the challenge was in the Kwikset booth). It should be noted that there is a way to easily get into the Kwikset product using a bypass tool, but this tool is not generally available. There is at least one report that the Schlage lock has been bypassed using the same technique. This one is a draw.
