This is a widely published and real threat to the security of your property. You can take action to reduce or eliminate the problem.
First thing which you can do to reduce or eliminate the problem is to have your locksmith install spool pins in the top of the cylinder. This will make picking, bumping or other methods of trying to get the lock open harder. We are finding many locks today are coming from the factory with this feature installed.
A second way would be to use high security cylinders. These have multi points of locking such as side bars, finger pins, and other patented features, along with unique keyways. This should reduce or eliminate the problem completely.
