Sargent RB kik cylinders won’t key up properly. Any advice or tips? : Locksmith


6 pin Sargent RB keyway using ilco kik cylinders master key system. Using Lab SGT115 pin kit. The way the keys work are random after pinning cylinder. Sometimes just one change key sometimes both change keys sometimes ggmk only or ggmk and one change key work. Code cut sargent factory RB keyways on hpc machine more than once doesn’t make a difference. Has anyone had this issue?

This apartment rekey on an undocumented master system feels like a trap : Locksmith


I just got a call for an apartment building. they have a tenant that wants her lock changed “Someone keeps breaking in” (yeah my first one of these) asking for more information they have a master system with master, GM and operating keys. They’re on everest, it looks like 7pin the apartments are LFIC except the front outer door. They don’t have any contact for whoever installed it, but they have the M, GM, Control and all the operating keys. . . . I feel like I may have to document their whole system just to change 1 lock. It’ll be a great learning experience, but holy fuck me! 24 apartments and 1 outer door. Do I read all the keys, record into a master sheet, eyeball the lot and guess a new apartment biting and match the master? . . I’m excited for the opportunity, but also curious of their budget for a single apartment rekey. it’s going to take hours to document everything.

The previous maintenance man had some code written down. it’s stamped into the GM key and doesn’t match the bitting. I’m guessing it’s a blind code, or file reference for whoever set it up.

Aaand digging a bit more, it’s a senior living facility. I may just drive out for a consult and get a little better scope of their actual need, maintenance staff and the likes.

After a padlock to fit a type of key. : Locksmith


Hi guys, my partner has an idea for secret santa but hasn’t thought it through. She has bought 100 of these keys. Unfortunately we now need to find a padlock that will suit it.

These are standard sort of doorkey in UK. Not sure if they’re different elsewhere. Im hoping someone can suggest a padlock to fit.

They have 1A printed on them if that means anything.

Also sorry if I’m breaking any rules
