Prowler Proof don't take short cuts when selecting hardware for our security screens. We understand that every component that goes into your security screen is important. That's why we include Lockwood Kinetic Defence cylinders in our security doors, to protect your door from bumping.
“Bumping” is a method of transferring energy to the internal pin tumblers to separate the pin sets while a rotational force is applied to defeat the cylinder. Awareness of the method of bump attack on pin tumbler cylinders has increased with the advent of easy access to the internet and the prevalence of sites such as YouTube.
A unique set of driver pins, along with tight manufacturing tolerances increases the security of the cylinder by resisting bump and picking manipulation. These stainless steel driver pins have a unique geometry which resists the kinetic forces applied when under a "bump" attack. They grip to the inside of the pin chamber and prevent the driver pin from being bumped and trapped above the shear line into the top chamber of the cylinder which would allow the cylinder to be compromised.
