Need Something To Do Today? Change Your Locks.

Last night, my stepson told me that he heard a story on the news about how a generic key could open locks on homes.   I said “yah, right….” and was pretty surprised when I received my morning feed from Sellsius showing this video:

The locksmith in the video offers some suggestions on how to prevent “lock bumping” such as buying  better locks (some are bump proof) which run over $100 in addition to consider having a security system, good lighting, etc.

When I was looking for this video to create this post, I was shocked to see just how many different “how to pick a lock” videos are on the internet.

Please share this information with your friends and family.    You were looking for something to do on your day off today, right?


  1. This is basic technique that I learned in about the first five minutes of some of my upper-level military training. There are hundreds of thousands of people who know how to do this.

  2. the more homeowners that know about this, the better. protect your family any way you can.


  3. Rudy and Jonanthan, thanks for your comments. I was shocked when I searched for this video on u-tube. Rudy, thanks for posting this on your blog so I could catch this, too!
