Imagine this scenario. While preparing for a good night's rest, you suddenly hear a loud bumping sound coming from the main entrance. As memories of recent news reports flood into your mind, you get an ominous pit-of-the-stomach feeling that you might be yet another victim of the lock-bumping scourge plaguing cities around the world.
Lock bumping is a lock-compromising technique where someone inserts a specially crafted key into the key portion of a deadbolt and then -- after a few whacks to ensure that the key is inserted properly -- uses it to unlock the deadbolt as easily as would someone using the actual key intended for the deadbolt.
But wait; the scenario doesn't end there. While sitting up in your bed listening intently, you breath a sigh of relief as you remember that you've already installed a nifty gadget called Lock Jaw Security , which is designed to keep deadbolts from being compromised by lawbreakers ranging from petty crooks to organized crime players to any other criminal intent on taking what is yours. Try all they want, these would-be invaders will not be able to force their way inside via the lock-bumping technique. Not with Lock Jaw in place. How does it work exactly? Lock Jaw, once put in place using a couple of crews or double-sided tape, holds the deadbolt's bolt-threw in place so that it will not retract.
With Lock Jaw, you can prevent crooks from ransacking your home courtesy of the lock-bumping method and, by doing so, help to keep you and your family safe. Furthermore, this tool can be used on any door that features a deadbolt -- whether your home, apartment or recreational vehicle. (Buy here.)
