Rumble / Weird ScienceThis video demonstrates a plastic bump key for the ABUS E20/E30 6-pin tumbler lock. Created by a pair of engineers, they first developed a piece of software called Photobump, which creates the necessary 3D file for a bump key with just a photo of a lock and a few bits of accessible information. Although they do not intend to release the software, it does bring up the issue on how easily standard locks can be compromised.
