I'm frequently asked 'What is a bump key?' A little while later the same person will ask 'What is a bump hammer?'
A bump hammer is a tool that allows you to strike the bump key to make it work. People have tried many other things, mobile phones (broken) your fingers (ouch) a normal hammer (snapped key) and more. There is nothing quite like an actual made for purpose bump hammer!
When UK Bump Keys first started there was no such thing as a proper 'bump hammer'. In fact, the first ones I sold were made out of a steel meter ruler, chopped down, spray-painted, and a rubber door-stop screwed onto the end! It wasn't ideal, but was certainly better than the options, which everyone else was using.
These days - a good 10 years later - you're absolutely spoiled. Lock Picking legends Brockhage have provided us with two amazing bump hammers, one with a standard flexibility, and one with advanced flexibility. Once you start bumping locks you'll soon realise how much easier it is with the right tools. So many people ask me 'How do I bump locks?' and I always answer 'With the right tools'. These wonderfully effective bump hammers produce precisely the kind of whip and contact required to get the technique working. They are tough and durable too, and will last you a million bumped locks!
