Things that go BUMP - into your home!

Think your dead bolt is keeping you safe? Think again.
The average person, read criminal, has available to him the Locksmith tool of the trade. They can use a "bump key" and open your lock leaving no sign of forced entry.
I heard about this last night on a radio news program and after doing a Google and You Tube search, I am amazed at the amount of information out there. There are tons of instructional videos to teach you how to make your own bump key and use it successfully.
This is a brief news clip which demonstrates bump keys and gives information on protecting yourself against this happening to you.

    That's why I have an alarm. I'm so paranoid of someone breaking in especially if I'm home.
