August Lock Gen3 installation on deadbolt with spindle attached to thumbturn : Locksmith


I recently purchased a August Lock Gen3 for my apartment and I realized that my deadbolt’s thumbturn(?) is attached to the spindle, making it incompatible for installation. I took it to a local locksmith and they said they don’t have the right spindle and its simply not compatible However, I feel like if I can right sized spindle, I can somehow make it work.

Here a picture of the deadbolt/knob with spindle attached: https://imgur.com/a/jBTfyeF

Anyone had any experience with making this type of installation work or am I just out of luck here?

Appreciate any help offered!

Just bought a house with an August Smart lock, and the key turns the lock forever without unlocking the deadbolt? : Locksmith


Hi guys–I’m having a hard time finding a solution online, since most support is for sticky keys and is for issues that can be solved with WD-40. I’ve just bought a home and the previous owners had an August Smart Lock on the deadbolt (which they left for me). It works fine from inside and effectively locks the deadbolt, but when taking the key to the outside, the key will spin forever in the lock without unlocking the door. Because this key is good for all the locks (garage, door handle lock, patio), I’d prefer not to replace all the locks, but I”m wondering if this is familiar to someone here who can help me learn how to fix it? Relying just on the smart lock and garage door opener makes me a little nervous vs. having a physical key I can unlock my door with. Thanks!

Knob alternative? So it has 2 locks, one simple deadbolt for my August Lock, and the main(manual) to be safe during the night. However, since I have no knob, the smart lock is pretty useless since I still need to insert my key to be used as a knob to open the door. Are there any alternatives? Thanks

Have you worked with the Yale August lock keypads? : Locksmith


I have a customer that uses these on quite a few doors and they will occasionally fall off the door. The screws have 5/16 – 3/8 of extra length before tightening so I can’t figure out what the deal is. I’m having to loctite all of these which is ridiculous because I have NEVER had an issue like this. Anybody have issues with these locks?

An aside, I didn’t sell these nor would I ever sell them. The customer acquires their own hardware.

Update: should have known better. The assembly is perfectly fine. However, the lever itself came off with the cylinder. Still an issue with these shitty locks.

Final update: I just finished up. The tenant evidently destroyed the old lock. The new (used) one I was given to install had a missing detent. An issue they’ve had with numerous other locks of the same model in the building.

This all started because the lock failed and the tenant was locked in. I don’t blame them for destroying the lock but that shouldn’t happen.

Lock in question: Yale YRL226

August Pro for mortise lock : Locksmith


Does anyone know of a lock cylinder that has a tail piece like a rim cylinder but can simultaneously hold a cam to operate a mortise lock?

I am trying to install a August Pro onto a mortise lock (one that takes cylinders), so I need the mounting holes and the tail piece from a rim cylinder to fit the August, but I also need it to hold a cam to operate the mortise lock. I found one from Assa that is a good candidate (it has threads, mounting screws, a tail piece, and the ability to swap in a cam), but I’m not sure it can do both the cam and tailpiece simultaneously:

Or any other ideas on how to fit an August Pro onto a mortise lock that takes cylinders would be appreciated!
