Most used/handiest tool : Locksmith


I thought of a better question to ask/answer.

Which tools do you keep backups of in your van?

I have backup screwdrivers and Allen keys. Everything else I reckon I can get by without for a couple of jobs, but no way am I going into battle without either of those things.

I guess a drill is nearly essential too and I actually have an old one that needs repairing. Once I’ve done that, it’s going into the tool box.

I also keep a fully charged 18V battery in the glove box. It’s strictly for emergencies only and it’s got me out of jail once or twice when I had to drill and realised I’d been slack with keeping the rest of them charged.

Replace 5 pin cylinder with 6 pin : Locksmith


My SO bought a bunch of Schlage keyed entry levers for my house which have 5 pin SC1 keys, similar to this. I’d like to key them alike to our deadbolts, which appear to be 6 pin SC4 keys (the key is visibly longer).

Is doing something like this possible? My guess is that the locksmith would have to change out the whole cylinder, would it even fit in the lever assembly?
