13 WHY CHOOSE IMPRESSIONING? When first hearing about impressioning, many people will ask when they would ever opt to attack a lock using a tactic that takes longer and is more tedious than lockpicking. ” This is a perfectly legitimate question. Indeed, many times lockpicking is an adequate—or even superior—means of entry to a secured area. However, if we compare these two tactics in greater detail, it should become clear that certain situations call for a degree of discretion and repeatability that can only be achieved by impressioning.

Personally, I always opt to start with zero-cut keys… because you never really know, there’s always the one-in-a-million chance that some screwball bitting combination is being used in a particular lock system and one position may actually have to remain at the blank key height. A particularly useful technique for accurately identifying marks on the key as you impression a lock involves using your magnification and illumination tools before you turn and wiggle the key in the lock… not just after you do so.

Now, with a blank key inserted and turned to one direction, the moment is right for the real work of impressioning… producing marks on the blade of the key. It is a somewhat difficult concept to understand at first, but what one must do at this time is attempt to “wiggle” the key in an up-and-down manner. I realize that this sounds like an impossible task. After all, most keys are not purely flat pieces of metal, but rather they are contoured with ridges and valleys. These features correspond to the unique shape of the keyway profile in the lock (known as the warding) and this leaves very limited means for the key itself to move vertically in the lock when it is inserted.
