ALERT: SCHLAGE® 6-PIN KEY CYLINDER
Schlage®, Baldwin®, Emtek®, & Pegasus®
5-pin key cylinder locks often come with a 6-pin key cylinder. The 6-pin key cylinder only has bottom pins in the first 5-pin holes,with the 6th. pin hole position being empty. When you insert the key from the CHANGE-A-LOCK® rekey kit into the 6-pin key cylinder, and using the special instructional sheet to replace the bottom pins, the last hole after the tip of the key is the 6th. pin hole position.
Therefore, the 6th. pin hole position is not used when rekeying.
ALERT! SCHLAGE SecureKey® LOCKS
Do not use the CHANGE-A-LOCK® rekeying method with the new Schlage SecureKey® Locks. The Schlage SecureKey® locks have a + above the key slot. You can use the keys in the CHANGE-A-LOCK® rekey kit to have all your locks keyed alike. However, you will need to have a new "blue" reset SecureKey(TM) cut to match the CHANGE-A-LOCK® keys. Schlage® corporation has exclusive control over the new "blue" reset SecureKey(TM); therefore, we can not provide them at this time. The "blue" reset SecureKey(TM) can be purchased at your local home center.
Watch Schlage SecureKey® rekeying method:
ALERT! BALDWIN PRESTIGE SERIES® LOCKS
Do not use the CHANGE-A-LOCK® rekeying method for the new BALDWIN PRESTIGE Series® Locks. The Prestige Series(TM) locks use the new KWIKSET SMART KEY® method for rekeying. The newly design Baldwin® locks will have a small slot on the left side of the key cylinder slot which uses the KWIKSET SMART KEY® for rekeying lock. BALDWIN® LOCK COMPANY was recently purchased by the KWIKSET® CORPORATION. The Baldwin Prestige Series® locks now have the KWIKSET® key cylinder. Previously, BALDWIN® LOCKS had the SCHLAGE® key cylinder.
ALERT: WHAT TO DO IF KEY CAN NOT BE REMOVED AFTER LOCK HAS BEEN RE-KEYED. If your key cylinder has a screw-off end cap, tighten or loosen one or two notches at a time until you are able to remove key. If this does not work or if your lock cylinder does not have a screw-off end cap then refer to master keyed locks below.
MASTER KEYED LOCK:
Your lock may have been master keyed at one time. If key can not be removed once lock has been rekeyed, then remove the key cylinder again using the follower. Remove the follower to let the top pins and springs drop out of cylinder housing. If lock has been master keyed you will have more than 5 top pins for a 5 pin cylinder lock system. Refer to the directions on how to replace the 5 top pins of equal length and the 5 springs. Do not use the other pins which drop out of the cylinder housing!
If you have a 6 pin key cylinder system then replace the 6 pins of equal length and the 6 springs.
