How Locks Work

Side-Locking Bar Mechanism

The patented side-locking bar technology is a recent innovation from Weiser. It is an improvement on the traditional pin and tumbler design, which is vulnerable to lock-bumping attacks. Lock bumping is an increasingly popular lock-picking technique in which an intruder would use a specially cut key to "bump" a lock open using skilled strikes to the key in the lock.

Weiser SmartKey deadbolts and locks feature the patented side-locking bar technology, which is also central to the SmartKey's ability to be rapidly and easily re-keyed.

Additionally, the cylinder uses two steel balls inserted into the front of the key face to provide improved drill resistance.

Delivering outstanding strength and protection, SmartKey deadbolts and locks have passed the most stringent lock-picking standard.
