Project help : Locksmith


Hi all,

Need help with a potential project/trying to figure out possible headaches/guide client in correct direction.

40 unit condo building (old building, not a new build) is looking to upgrade/modernize/uniform their condo doors. The units are all either:

  1. Schlage K series mortise

  2. Schlage G lock

  3. Schlage H lock

Of course they hired a designer who is telling them to go with Schlage L. For the doors that have Schlage K series, I see no problem as we do this work enough. My main concerns are what route I can take the G and H locks. Condos here are required to have fire rated doors, so my question is.. can you even convert G/H locks to mortise? And, won’t that void the fire rating of the doors?

If it will either not be able to converted or it will void rating, what other options can I present to them hardware wise for uniformity that will not require new doors.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

I have a school project that requires me to have advisors with a professional background : Locksmith


Almost completely pick resistant? Have you never seen the “Lockpicking Lawyer”? If not, got over to YouTube and check him out.

And realize that “almost completely pick resistant” is almost impossible even for professional engineers. 🙂

If you’re going to be graded on the resistance? See if you can do a different project.

Need help with prototype for school project : Locksmith


Hello Reddit. I am a sophomore and I’m in the Business Entrepreneurship Program at my school. We have to create a product or service, our own idea, and my idea is a pill bottle cap with a combo lock on it. I want this cap to be able to fit and work on a normal pill bottle from the pharmacy, not a third party pill bottle. The only thing is that we need a prototype, due end of March and I have no idea where to start. We have two 3D printers at our school, so I can print it but I need to make and design it first. The only reason I’m taking this project so seriously is because my teacher brings in powerful people for the judges, such as Michael Fountain, the director of USF Center for Entrepreneurship. Just to put in perspective, USF has the 8th best entrepreneurship program in the NATION. He’s also a professor in 5 subjects. Anyways, if I make it to districts with my project, and I get first place, I can win up to $2500. That’s huge for me trying to get a car right now. Last year someone from our school won, and I’m confident I can make our school win this year. If I can successfully make a pill bottle cap with a combo lock on it, I know I can win. I can prevent children from getting into pills thinking it’s edible, AND I can prevent addicts from getting into it. The judges loves stuff related to medical / safety and this idea hits it on the head. If anyone can help me out please reach out to me. My email is [email protected] . Thank you! Hope to hear something from someone!
