How To Make A Bump Key In 5 Minutes: 3 Keys That Will Open 90% Of All Locks In Seconds!}

Submitted by: Karen Wakowski

A bump key is a very special key that can be made out of


key for a certain lock: for example, if you’ve got a regular key for a Schlage C-keyway (the most common) lock then you can make a bump key out of it that will open


Schlage C-keyway lock, and you can do it with just a regular hand file, that’s it!

How Bump Keys Work

A normal key works by raising the pins inside a lock’s keyway to a certain height. Those pins have been individually cut to different heights such that if they’re all raised to where they’re cut (called the “shear line”) such that they’ll allow the cylinder to turn, the lock will open. The key raises these pins by having various ridges and valleys cut in it such that when it’s fully inserted into the lock it raises all the pins to the correct height.

A bump key works by “bumping” those pins (which are spring-loaded) straight up very quickly while, at the same time, you apply a slight turning force to the key, and during that split second that the pins are in the air, if you time it right (it’s not hard), the shear line is clear and the cylinder will turn, thereby allowing you to open the lock!

What Types of Locks Will This Work On?

Almost all of them. The type of lock bump keys work on are call “pin-tumbler” locks, and the great majority of locks in modern use in the world, and almost


of the locks you see in the U.S. (Masterlocks, any other padlocks, regular front-door deadbolts, storefront locks, etc.) are pin-tumblers.

The only catch is that you need to use a key, when you make your bump key, that is the same keyway as the lock you want to bump open–this is very easy, as most major brands only have a few common keyways, and if you cover just 4 or 5 major keyways, you’ll be able to open 90% of all the locks out there. The most common door locks are Schlage and Kwikset, most Schlages are C-keyways and Kwiksets are almost all the same keyway, and the most common padlock is Masterlock, most of which use the same keyway. If you’ll get a Schlage lock, a Kwikset, and a Masterlock, and then use their keys to make bump keys, with just those 3 keys you’ll be able to bump open over 80% of all the locks in use in the U.S.

How To Make a Bump Key

1. Get your key.

2. Get a small round file.

3. A vice will make this a


easier, but it’s not absolutely necessary, you can just hold the key in your hand while filing if you don’t have access to a vice.

4. Find the lowest valley amongst the biting on the key.

5. Using that point as a reference, file down all the other valleys (not the points, don’t file the whole key down) to that same height.

6. It wouldn’t hurt to use some 300 grit sandpaper to smooth over the rough spots on the biting so the key slides smoothly in and out of the lock. That’s it, you’re done. I told you it was easy.

How to Use It

What you do is insert the key


all the way into the lock that you want to bump (let it stick out of the key hole maybe a couple millimeters or so–slide it in so that there’s one ‘click’ left before it’s all the way in, if that makes sense), then you’re going to whack the key from the back with something hard (the handle of a hammer or screwdriver works great, a shoe will work too) and simultaneously turn the key the direction it would normally go (turn it just a slight split second after bumping the key). You may have to do this a few times before the lock opens, but it


work. If that key will fit in the lock, then you absolutely can bump it open.

U.S. superbug expected to emerge in Canada

U.S. superbug expected to emerge in Canada

Wednesday, January 3, 2007

An infectious superbug spreading in the United States is to “emerge in force” in Canada, doctors fear. The bacteria have been reported popping up in day care centers and locker rooms across the U.S. Usually elderly or very ill hospital patients get the disease.

More than 2 million U.S. residents are infected every year, the Centers for Disease Control estimates.

An article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) on Tuesday said that Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are “spreading with alarming rapidity.” The bacteria can cause boils, pimples, or in extreme cases, flesh-eating disease, and more.

“The resistant bacteria is an old foe with new fangs: a pathogen combining virulence, resistance and an ability to disseminate at large,” wrote Dr. John Conly, medical professor and an infectious disease specialist at the University of Calgary.

British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario are the provinces which already have had MRSA in hospitals.

A 30-year-old Calgary, Alberta man died last year of lung abscesses associated with the infection, as well as a three-month old toddler in Toronto, Ontario.

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios, last summer, suffered from an infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus in his leg. Pitcher Ty Taubenheim had a similar infection on his foot.

Doctors are currently investigating some Calgary residents, who could be one of the first Canadian reports of MRSA outside of a hospital setting.

Remains of a child discovered in Jersey care home

Remains of a child discovered in Jersey care home

Monday, February 25, 2008

Parts of a body belonging to a child have been discovered at the Haut de la Garenne in Saint Martin, Jersey, a United Kingdom Crown dependency off the coast of Normandy, France.

The Victorian building, which was originally built as a children’s care home and is now a youth hostel, has been under investigation recently as part of an inquiry into child abuse which occurred during the 1960s. The investigation has now been refocused with the aim to excavate further the grounds of the building, under the command of a specialist team from the UK who will use ground scanners and sniffer dogs to detect any other possible remains.

The body is believed to date from the early 1980s though further information about the identity of the child has not yet been released. The remains were found buried underneath a concrete floor inside the building. Today, the Guardian newspaper revealed that there are fears of a possible six further bodies buried on the site.

“There could be six, but it could be higher than that,” according to lead investigator Lenny Harper, who further said, “Allegations range from physical assaults right through to rape. It is difficult to envisage more horrific crimes than some of those that are alleged to have been carried out here.”

A helpline set up to find more information about alleged child abuse at the Haut de la Garenne and Jersey Sea Scouts has garnered a total of 140 contacts, made up of those claiming to be witnesses or victims to the crimes. The information gathered from the telephone inquiry triggered the search of the grounds.

With the financial crisis at hand almost anyone, even the most innocent looking individuals, are forced into doing robbery such as breaking into homes just to have a decent meal for their hungry family.

Unfortunately not all security door jams are made the same, you really must do your homework before placing your trust and the safety of your household on such an item, there are reports or break-ins where the homeowners used a cheap door jam only to be found it shattered into pieces by burglars. Do not fall prey under a false sense of security, cheap security door jams does not offer anything but hurt your wallet. A well invested quality security door jam serves as an important extra security tool in an exposed spot like your doors. There are a lot of types and sizes of door jams available for your needs and budget. Also, do not be afraid to get help from your friendly store clerk since some door jams need extra chiselling of the door frame for a tighter fit. Installing door jams are easy; first you have to make sure that your door opens inwards, since installing a security door jam to a door that open outwards will have no use at all.

The next step is to measure how wide your door is, and then depending on the model of the door jam you might have to carve off a section of the door frame so that the door jam will fit. Afterwards you have to install the brackets with long screws at either side of the door which will hold the door jam in place, just make sure you position it so it would not pose as an obstacle for you entering the door. Once you followed all the above instructions then you are ready to set your home security system, simply lock your doors normally and let the security door jam serve as a strong barrier from letting intruders open your doors. If you want to go out and open your doors, simply lift up the security door jam and tuck it away for storage until you want to secure your doors again. Following the above steps will enable you to have a safe, protected and secure home to relax to and take away your worries.

U.S. Postal Service running out of money

U.S. Postal Service running out of money

December 28, 2016 · Filed under Uncategorized

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Tensions are running high at the U.S. Postal Service as it faces an enormous budget shortfall. Even after announcing it was cutting 3,000 jobs, the beleaguered government agency is still quickly running out of money.

Postmaster General John Potter asked the United States Congress for help on Wednesday, once again bringing up the possibility of reducing mail delivery from six to five days a week. The service reduction would save approximately $3.5 billion this year.

Another way to cut costs could include changes to how it pays for its employee retirement plan, which would save a further $2 billion. Closing small and rural post offices is another possibility that has been discussed.

Many measures have already been taken to stem the agency’s losses. Construction of new facilities has been put on hold and existing ones put up for sale, millions of man-hours have been cut, and executive salaries have been frozen.

House Oversight Post Office Subcommmittee chairman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Mass.) has expressed reluctance with the plan to reduce service, saying “With the Postal Service facing budget shortfalls the subcommittee will consider a number of options to restore financial stability and examine ways for the Postal Service to continue to operate without cutting services.”

Other than cost cutting, Congress could also appropriate taxpayer dollars to fund the struggling Postal Service, which currently does not rely on public funding outside of a subsidy for international voting mail and services for the blind.

If nothing is done, the USPS will soon run completely out of money, and may be unable to pay many of its bills. Salaries are the agency’s highest priority to continue paying, though other debts may have to wait to be paid, said Potter. Last year the Postal Service lost $2.8 billion.

Wikinews interviews Darcy Richardson, Democratic Party presidential challenger to Barack Obama

Wikinews interviews Darcy Richardson, Democratic Party presidential challenger to Barack Obama

December 28, 2016 · Filed under Uncategorized

Friday, November 25, 2011

U.S. Democratic Party presidential candidate Darcy Richardson of Florida took some time to answer a few questions from Wikinews reporter William S. Saturn.

Richardson, 55, is a political activist that helped form the New Democrats in 1989 and founded the progressive Battleground Blog earlier this year. He is also a political historian, and has authored six books covering third parties and presidential elections, including A Nation Divided: The 1968 Presidential Campaign (2002). His current work, The Spirit of ’76: Eugene McCarthy’s Struggle for Open Politics, chronicles the late Democratic Senator Eugene McCarthy’s 1976 presidential campaign for which he volunteered. Richardson admires McCarthy, and served as manager for his 1988 presidential run. Recently, Richardson advised Brian Moore’s Socialist Party USA presidential campaign in 2008.

In addition, Richardson himself has sought political office, albeit unsuccessfully. In 1980, he ran for Pennsylvania Auditor General, and in 1988, vied for one of Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seats as a member of the Consumer Party. Last year, he ran for Lieutenant Governor of Florida as the running mate of gubernatorial candidate Farid Khavari.

Richardson has criticized President Barack Obama’s policies for being too similar to those of former President George W. Bush. He hoped to convince several prominent progressives to challenge Obama in the Democratic primaries, but none were available to do so. Last month, Richardson decided to begin a campaign himself and announced through his Battleground Blog that he would challenge Obama in the Democratic Party primaries as a progressive candidate. So far, he has qualified for the New Hampshire primary in January and the Missouri primary in February. In an interview with the Independent Political Report, Richardson proclaimed his campaign slogan as “no fourth term for George W. Bush.”

G20 Summit plans to inject US$5tn into economy before 2011

G20 Summit plans to inject US$5tn into economy before 2011

December 28, 2016 · Filed under Uncategorized

Friday, April 3, 2009

The G20 Summit held in London, England concluded Thursday with an injection into the economy of US$5 trillion by the end of 2010.

Global trade would be supported by $250 billion (169.5 billion pounds). “We are going to act decisively to kickstart international trade. We will ensure availability of at least $250 billion over the next two years,” said Gordon Brown Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

The International Monetary Fund IMF will have access to $750bn in resources of which $250bn will support special drawing rights.

Developing countries received $100bn which will be dispensed via Multilateral development banks. Towards this end, the IMF will sell off gold reserves.

China will support the IMF fund by $40bn, the European Union by $100bn, and Japan by $100bn.

There will be increased regulation on banking and credit ratings agencies. There was a commitment to clamp down on hedge funds, tax havens and toxic assets. To restore consumer confidence in the financial sector, a new Financial Stability Board will be initiated internationally. There would be new policies implemented to control pay and bonuses paid to the heads of banks and corporations.

The G20 leaders were adverse to protectionism and rallied to support international trade and investment.

The Leaders’ statement said, “We reaffirm the commitment made in Washington: to refrain from raising new barriers to investment or to trade in goods and services, imposing new export restrictions, or implementing World Trade Organization (WTO) inconsistent measures to stimulate exports.”

Eoin O’Malley, senior adviser on international trade at BusinessEurope, said “The measure also needs to be part of wider package to avoid protectionism and conclude the Doha round which will stimulate trade growth. The key point now is to move forward with Doha. The key now is implementation. G20 governments must act quickly to provide this finance to companies that need it urgently.”

Detoxifying Breakfast

November 8, 2015 · Filed under Uncategorized

Submitted by: Amy A.May

Detoxifying the body has become an apparent key preventetive measure to all kind’s of health problems. Since most of us are busy, and unable or unwilling to maintain a strict diet in order to completely eliminate all the toxins from our bodie. We have chemicals building up in our bodiess day after day. Since these chemicals are not harmful in small amounts, only in larger accumulated amounts, we don’t notice side effects until we are much older.

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that children that eat breakfast do better in school than those who don’t.

However, we also all know that it isn’t always easy to find time to prepare that all-important meal or to convince our children to eat it! One way to create a positive attitude toward breakfast in your children is by showing them that you enjoy breakfast!

Detox, short for detoxification, is the removal of potentially toxic substances from the body. Learn more about detox diets today. Eating breakfast as a family is a great opportunity to spend some quality time together. Spending time together, making breakfast can turn out to be a child’s favorite part of the day! By being creative and maybe just a little bit organized, you can make a variety of tasty and healthy breakfasts. Try these ideas:

* for a quick and easy breakfast try a toasted bagel spread with low-fat cream cheese.

* or peanut butter spread on whole-wheat toast.

Detoxification provides the liver, colon and other organs with the enzymes, nutrients and support that they need to eliminate the waste build-up and to function efficiently again.

* how about a fruit smoothie? Toss whatever fruit you have in the blender with milk.

* when you have a little time, prepare a large batch of pancakes or waffles. Freeze in a single layer, then stack in a zip-top bag. In the mornings, pop one into the toaster, then top with fruit and yogurt.

* or spread peanut butter and jelly between 2 pancakes.

* try some non-traditional foods, like leftover pizza–kids nearly always go for it!

* kids don’t want to drink their juice? Try this easy recipe for Orange Juice Smoothies.

o 1/2 cup orange juice

o 1/4 cup sugar

o 1/2 cup milk

o 1/2 cup water

o 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

o 5 or 6 ice cubes

Mix all ingredients in blender till smooth.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be ham and eggs anymore! Nor does it have to be cold cereal. By using a little creativity you can have a healthy breakfast every morning!

Conventional, mainstream (allopathic) medical practitioners have yet to latch on to this concept, since they’re only trained to treat diseases and symptoms specifically without treating the patient as a whole.

vary, but they typically advise restriction of the diet to raw vegetables, fruit, water and yoghurt
