grayghost I go with a lockpick kit, it takes practice and never goes as smooth as it does in the movies, but with practice it does work.

It takes lots of practice and timing the easiest way I found is very light pressure (twisting ) on the key and tap it with th a handle of the screwdriver also take a couple of shaves off the "stop" on hte key that limits its inward travel go to you tube and t here are or were liots of ppl with vids I prefer a pipe wrench or I have also fabricated a sheet metal tool that you pry over the door with a flat bar slide this between jamb and latch with door pushed on as if you were entering the house pull door towards you while pushing sheet metal tool towards door and it makes the latch depress and you are in Best thing for a dead bolt C4

Make sure you are using cobalt bits. A little cutting oil helps too.

I have had luck with real Kwikset locks. I've never had any luck with dead bolts or Schlage locks though.

With that being said, had you tried putting a small rubber o-ring on the bump key? It seems to make a difference. If it doesn't immediately help with the bump, it at least resets the key for the next hit.
