Very Impressive, shame that I had no idea about this until a few seconds back :)
I have a doubt : so does every spring has a different stiffness coefficient?

No, not necessarily. The lower pins are of different lengths, which is what causes only the correct key to unlock it.

And here's how a "bump key" works to open any simple lock of this sort: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQDR-DBQRfI.

Hey, that's easy! Thanks for sharing. I mean, we all know that already, right ;)? But thanks anyway :)

This is how the most simple locks work, this is why they are so easy to lock pick..
