tried home depot. off the shelf could only find a max of 2 and they couldn't rekey the 3rd.
Well, you should have drivers in there, so the springs never come in contact with the plug.
It’s been a while since I rekeyed Schlage with C-clip, but if I remember correctly, the end of the plug, where the tailpiece goes, is shaped like an oval. You need to insert the plug at more or less exactly 90º so that the end of the oval shape keeps everything in the bible like it should.
As nice as the padlock is, it requires modification of the control key. As it sits, the control key is too long and once the cylinder is installed, you can’t get the key in all the way to remove it. This may not apply to normal FSIC cylinders, but this is the case for SL FSIC.
I noticed a new construction apartment building installing these keyless key fob entry schlage (pieces of shh..) .. So I figure, as much as it sucks this is the future of locksmithing or an increasingly large part of house lock out entries.. Either way..
Say you get called to a lockout because the batteries died or customer lost the fob.. What would you do to gain entry? Drill? Where? Air wedge the door? Just wondering.. It appears to be the future and it sucks. Did I mention that already?
I went to a local locksmith to ask about rekeying a house, and just want to compare the prices on what they are selling.
They bragged that the stuff they had is much better quality than what would be found at Hone Depot or the likes.
Where can someone find these products? I’m typically a DIYer, and feel replacing a knob is within my scope. What is not, is figuring out the mortise I will be posting later for you all, so I’ll still be using them most likely for that.
