speaking of opening a car door i heard that remote locks work thru cell phones- ex you lock you keys in you can call home and have the person on the other end hit your unlock button on the spare and if you hold your phone to the door it will open.. im am skeptical. but to lazy to walk out to my car to try it lol

I think someone off screen pushed the unlock button as she pushed the tennis ball.

I'm sure a neighbor tired it on yours last night... interesting, but wouldn't that work on all locks that have tumblers?

Just for shits and grins I got my hands on a bunch of bump keys last week and they work :shock:


When I first saw a video about bump keys, I wasn't convinced. I remember thinking that there's no way that locks can be defeated that easily. But I got bored and decided to check it out by reading articles and watching videos about it. There are a lot of free articles at this site about bumping locks. I was going to buy bump keys online but I read that it can be illegal in some areas so I decided not to risk it so I just made my own bump key. Well, what do you know. It worked!

I also tried it on cars but it didn't work. Apparently, bump keys only work on older cars.

Lesson learned - don't quickly disregard something just because it sounds too good to be true. This is why when I saw a video about tennis balls being used to open cars, I checked it out as well. But unlike bump keys, it was proven to be a hoax.
