How To Install Lori Single Cylinder Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith White Rock

How To Install Lori Single Cylinder Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith White Rock: Installing a Lori deadbolt. The Lori Deadbolt can be  a little bit confusing, because most deadbolts have the screws on the inside, so it’s pretty easy to figure out how to remove it, its double cylinders are a little different, so most of our Kwikset, Weiser, and Schlage deadbolts is pretty simple. You have a couple of screws, you take it out the traditional way. The Lori Deadbolts have a set screw hidden along the side of the bolt. You will need a 5/16-inch long-shaft Allen wrench to install or remove the set screws.

How To Install a Lori Single Cylinder Deadbolt

Tools to Install Lori Deadbolt

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • 5/16-inch long-shaft Allen wrench
  1. Open the Door
  2. Detach the slide bolt faceplate from the door edge by removing the two flathead screws using a Phillips screwdriver.
  3. Remove the thumb latch assembly from the interior side of the door, if applicable, by removing the two screw bolts on either side of the latch handle, then pulling the assembly horizontally from the door.
  4. Slip the long shaft of a 5/16-inch Allen wrench into the space on either side of the slide bolt to engage in the cylinder set screws and turn the set screw counterclockwise two to three full turns to loosen. Repeat for the set screw on the other side of the slide bolt.
  5. Remove the deadbolt cylinders by turning the cylinders counterclockwise until the cylinder is free of the mortise housing. You can insert the deadbolt’s key into the cylinder for leverage in turning the cylinder. Repeat for the opposite side cylinder in double-keyed models.
  6. Pull the slide bolt assembly from the door edge, then remove the cylinder housing from the door hole.

Lori Single Cylinder Deadbolt

A couple of screws. You can see the screws, you can see how to take it apart. And everything apart. So that’s your traditional single cylinder deadbolt. Now I’ll show you the Lori. They’re made by a ilco, UniCan, kaba, whatever you want to call them this week. It’s not my favorite deadbolt. In the year, you know, 35 years ago, it was a good deadbolt and I’ll show you why, because we could make almost any cylinder fit this. So, and that’s why they’re confusing when you see this on the door. Sometimes they’ll say Lori, other times they’ll say, could be Schlage, could be kaba, could be medical. It could be almost any type of lock. And you’ll see why it’s confusing for Locksmiths and also beginner locksmiths, or just the home, do it yourself or try to take this Lori lock off the door. So this is the ilko Lori, pretty simple. It’s instructions. Now, you’ll see it’s already slightly different than our normal deadbolts. And what the important pieces on this is, it’s the Allen key. You needed a long reach Allen wrench or Allen key. What do you want to call it? The Allen wrench or Allen key is five 64 of an inch. So this is what you need. And this is what’s a real pain in the butt. And it has to be a longer one, the normal. So sometimes your little kits don’t have the reach for it. So that’s the most important thing to the installation of this lock. And we’ll just show you what we got here. Now, this is a single cylinder and it’s pretty basic stuff. What you have here is the housing and it’s pretty easy. It says right on there top, is there an inside and outside? Here’s the confusing part. It has the little set screws and you can’t really see it when you’re trying to take it off. But when we’re putting it in, it’s a little bit different. So to install it, we have the cylinder housing, make sure your set screws are flush. That makes it easier to do the install. Top there, just place it in there, take our dead bolt, basically going to feed it in there. This is the single cylinder deadbolt. So this is what comes in the kit. Now this is what gets a little confusing. These machine screws are for holding the thumb turn on, these ones in the bag here, are for holding the housing to the bolts. So we’ll take these out right now. So there we have, now the bolt is into the housing. So the next step is, we have to change, this is a mortis cam and they have to use the Adams right cam. Take it off, put it in, and make sure, you know, you get the right side down. This will set flush, and that’s another common mistake. People put these in. So again, just tight don’t over crank them. And they have to be flush. So we’ve got the Adam’s right cam on the boarder cylinder. Everything’s good, we got the right key. Okay, everything’s perfect. So the spacer goes on first, then our little springy cover. And what we have to do now, take the outside housing, and what we’re going to do, is we’re going to install it. It’s going to screw in similar to an Adam’s rights storefront. But we’re going to screw the mortar cylinder in here. And again, don’t cross thread it. It’s pretty easy to cross thread. And I take the key out a little bit and gently get it snug. We have the mortar cylinder in the outside. Now I’m going to install the thumb turn on the inside. Other screws. Again, don’t force anything. You’ll cross thread the heck out of everything. So again, just do it snug, double check it, and check this. Now what we have to do to make sure, make sure that’s vertical. Now this is the confusing part. You can take your Allen wrench 564s. It has to be long. Now this is the difficult part for most people. You have to get it right in there, and just sort of wiggle it a little bit, and then you get in the set screw. Right to tighten, and again, snug not crazy, so we know we’re in, pull it out. Try that. Yeah, we obviously didn’t, I think we’re, I got to go in a little bit tighter. Cause see how it’s binding a little bit there, right there. We’re either binding on the, I think we’re binding on the set screws. You’d have to back it off or put it in. So let’s just snug. Now it’s a lot better. So just check by putting your, lock it, take the key out, unlock it, take the key out, one more check on the inside. Now we don’t have to do the set screw there because it’s a single cylinder, and these are held into the housing, these two screws. So we don’t have to set the screw there. The cover plate. Make sure it works. Don’t over-tighten these, if you over-tighten it, you’re going to find the bolt won’t open and close properly. There we go. Pretty simple. The advantage of this lock in the old days, again, I am not a fan of it right now, we run across a lot of them, is I can put any mortar cylinder with the Adam’s right cam in here. So I can put in anything. I can put it in a high security, any mortar cylinder lock, or any brand lock, any brand name will screw into that, and you can key it up to anything. So it’s a very versatile. In the old days it was versatile because we didn’t have too much choice. And now we have so many choices right now. As you know my favorite is the, take the Schlage, the B 660s or the 560s, or even the the end series, the new ones, the 60 ends. I can put the kick cylinder, we call them kicks owners. So it’s a cylinder we can put in. But we’re talking about this lock today. So this is the Lori Kaba. In its day it was versatile, but we run across a lot of these and some customers still have them, and some commercial buildings have boxes of these things. So we’re still installing them. They’re okay, I’m not a fan of them. I find them, if they’re exposed to weather, that little set screw rust up and the inside rust up. Again, not my favorite lock. It’s not that cheap either, but we run across them. So this is the Ilco, Lori, Kaba style deadbolt. It’s mostly called the Lori single cylinder deadbolt. Hope you enjoyed the video. Good luck when you run across these. Okay, have a good day. I hope you enjoyed watching this video.

WD-40

WD40 or “Locksmith in a can” is a great product and I have opened hundreds of lock where the customer had a key that didn’t work and I would lightly spray the key hole and the key would work (Note: I would usually rekey or replace the lock after opening). If I can not pick a lock I will spray the lock with WD40 and it will then pick open. I have had no luck with other lubricates, It may be psychological but it works. Source: WD-40

Graphite

Graphite is the traditional material for lubricating pin tumbler locks, however, I do not like using it. My Dad used it profusely in locks and had a large tin of it on his work bench. I consider graphite old school because locksmiths today have a great selection of superior lock lubricants available.

Mr. Locksmith White Rock: (604) 210-9875

2020 RAM 3500 LED Headlight Upgrade for Dodge Ram pickup owners have challenges with the stock factory Halogen Headlights. The stock Headlights are extremely poor for driving at night.  A LED light upgrade is very simple and fast on the Low Beam Headlights. Installing High Beam LED replacement light requires removing the Air Cleaner box on the passenger side headlight.

Ram OEM projector headlights

If you have a Ram 2500 or 3500 with the OEM projector headlights you need this package! Improve the mediocre light output from your factory projectors to what it should have been from the factory!

I am extremely happy with the new LED replacement bulbs. Also, the LED bulbs typically last longer than the factory halogen headlights.

On a recent nighttime drive through the Rocky Mountains the new LED lights performed perfectly.

I highly recommend the 2020 RAM 3500 LED Headlight Upgrade.

Duracell 550 Lumen Headlamp Review | Mr Locksmith White Rock

Mr. Locksmith White Rock: (604) 210-9875

I love Costco. They always got some fantastic deals and they’re always got the Duracell batteries on sale and they got some flashlights every now and then. What I did is I bought a pack of these, they were under $20. I thought, “oh, this is okay. “Cool, it’s got the headlamp.” I’m not really into the headlamps. I didn’t think I was. So I thought, “hey, this is a good deal.” I’ll put a one in my service truck for locksmithing, ’cause you never have enough light. And I’ll give it a try. And I’ll put one inside my camper and one inside my truck for camping. So I bought it and I thought, “Wow.”

Duracell 550 Lumen 3-pack Headlamp

I tried it out, they were fantastic. So I bought another pack, while they’re still on sale and they still got them. And there was actually hardly any left this time. The biggest pain in the butt is getting them out of this package. They pack them up so good. So scissors. Okay, there we go. I got these in my camper. I’m quite happy with… Oh, I can do that when I’m looking down there. Okay. So I guess that’s… That’s one thing I hate about this. Someone’s got this on their head and they’re talking to me and it’s right in my face. I can’t see a thing. So this is kind of cool. So I do like these. I don’t like wearing a headlamp normally, but I kinda like this one. It’s lots of batteries, lots of bits and pieces, but the good thing with this is I just don’t have one. I have them all thrown all over the place, so it’s quite handy. Okay. Have a good day. Hey, good Christmas idea for your locksmith or anybody, camper, hunter, locksmith. Good idea.

Features:

  • 9 Beam Modes
  • 220 Degree Viewing Area
  • 550 Lumens of Light Output
  • 9 Duracell AAA Batteries Included

Unboxing Schlage Sense Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith White Rock

Unboxing Schlage Sense Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith White Rock

Mr. Locksmith White Rock: (604) 210-9875

Unboxing Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt: Hi, I’m Terry. Today I am going to unbox a Schlage Sense. The Sense Electronic Deadbolt is built on their successful line of residential, electronic deadbolts and also key in knobs, so this is the electronic deadbolt, the Schlage Sense.

Schlage Sense Bluetooth Encription

Some of the big problems of the earlier electronic locks were using unencrypted Bluetooth that could be hacked. The Schlage Sense is using Bluetooth 4.0 and has an encrypted signal.

Bluetooth, as opposed to wifi, ZWave, ZigBee and all the other protocols for communicating with your electronic locks is low battery drain. Bluetooth is easy on the batteries just go on forever and ever, also, the Bluetooth is good for about 40 feet. Again, depending on your building and all sorts of things, but again, the Bluetooth 4.0 is fantastic for encryption and the other thing is long battery life. So you’re gonna get a lot of battery life out of this.

One of the earlier problems with the other electronic deadbolts is they were just draining battery power like crazy. Because the wifi is just constantly draining the batteries, even when they go into sleep mode it’s just a big battery hog. So, whenever you’re looking at any product, any Bluetooth product, make sure it’s a 4.0 at a minimum, 4.0 for the encryption and it is not a battery hog.

Unboxing Schlage Sense Deadbolt

The Schlage is for residential use. I absolutely love their products. Nicely packaged. I with the oil rubbed finish. Well written instructions. We got batteries which is good. One key? I’ll just open this up, all my bits and pieces. So they gave us Duracells, excellent batteries. Plates, screws, again pretty simple, this is a drive-in or Mortise. And, what do we have here? Instructions, so, We have User Guide, instructions. Now, this one is compatible out of the box with Apple TV, so you need Apple TV. Also if you’re gonna run it with any other program you’re gonna need the wifi adapter.

We will show that in another video. So, out of the box, this is Bluetooth capable. Now, you have to download the app, so just to to the App Store, just Google Schlage Sense, get it, the app downloads quickly, put it on your Android or your iPhone, and that’s for accessing the, making the lock open and close. We’ll hook this up on a panel, we’ll see how it looks. Again, out of the box, pretty good. It’s the Schlage Sense. Now, the Schlage user is pretty good even with the wifi adapter and hooking it all up. As a security precaution, and there’s no way around it at the moment, you cannot say, “Open door” or “Alexa, open Schlage door”.

Schlage-Sense-Smart-Deadbolt-White-Rock

Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt White Rock

– [Alexa] Sorry, I’m having trouble with understanding.

– Yeah, it doesn’t matter, it’s not hooked up to work through the wifi to open up the door. You gotta watch that on some of these other electronic products. Out of the box, you can say Alexa or Google or whatever and open the door and it’ll open from outside so,

– [Alexa] I’m not sure.

The Schlage is an interesting product and we are testing all the different Google, Amazon products and Apple home, out of the box this will not open through your voice commands. You have to use your app on your cell phone or you have to plugin, you know, punch in your number. The interesting thing is, we can have, I gotta check on all the specs, but I’m pretty sure we can have temporary codes that will just work for a bit.

Now, through your app and your cellular into the wifi and through your internet to your home so you can do this remotely, let people in remotely or give people codes, so it’s great for Airbnb. Again, this is a residential lock, we’ve had very good luck even putting the, we’ve had excellent luck putting these on Airbnb’s and also some bed and breakfasts. I’m going to install this on a customer who wants to be able to remotely see who comes and goes. I think he’s checking on his kids when he goes away on vacation.

Good product, there are other Keyless Locks and products, we’ll see how this one is. We are going to test it and install it up on the door and we’ll try all the different options and see how it works.

How to Take a Copy of a Key | Mr Locksmith White Rock

How To Take A Copy Of A Key | Mr Locksmith White Rock

https://mrlocksmithwhiterock.com/

Sending a locksmith the picture of a key can help us identify the key or lock. This may seem like a silly video, but it’s actually very important. I made the “How to Take a Picture of a Key” to help our customers.

  1. Take an in-focus picture of the key.
  2. Take a picture of both sides of the key.
  3. Remove any tape or obstruction covering the head of the key.
  4. If possible a picture of the end of the key.
  5. In-focus pictures of the key.

Key Copy Near Me

A lot of times customers ask Where can I get a “key copy near me’”  “I need my locks rekeyed.” or “Duplicate Key” and then they try to describe it to me. Sometimes they can, sometimes they can’t, sometimes there’s no information that you can see, but I can see. So, a lot of times we ask our customers “Take a picture, take an in-focus picture of the key.” So we ask our customers, email or just text me, a picture of your key. So this is how to take a picture of your key so I can see what you have. You gotta take both sides of the key. So take a picture there, so I can see what the make is, I can look at some of the grooves and then turn the key over and take a picture again, and then I can see from the other side I know it’s a Schlage, and on this I can see it’s a C123. So I can tell you “Yes I have that key.” So whatever key you have, whether it’s a car key, or house key, motorcycle, whatever, in focus, both sides of the key, then you can email it to me or a locksmith and we can tell you if we have that key.

Sometimes we’ve had people on fishing expeditions up north, they’ve taken their keys with them they’re in the middle up north, in the middle of nowhere, the wife is locked out, they have the key, and this one, we can actually see this one has a code, so we now know we can cut that by code and we can get that person in the house really quick and easy.

In conclusion, silly as it sounds “how to take a picture of a key”, in focus, both sides of the key, text or email, then we can tell you what you have. [email protected]

Amazon’s Ring video doorbells catch fire! Can’t Fix Stupid | Mr. Locksmith White Rock

Amazon’s Ring video doorbells catch fire! Can’t Fix Stupid | Mr. Locksmith White Rock

Ring Video Doorbell Fire, Ring and Nest are the two major video doorbell products. Ring Video Doorbell has sold approximately 8,700 units in Canada.

For further information go to https://mrlocksmithwhiterock.com/

I have tried them both and they do what they say they are going to do. But what’s interesting, this is the Ring notice on it. But there’s been this doorbell 2nd generation tool has been linked to numerous fires throughout the US and Canada. I don’t know about Canada so much, but I know in the U S. Now Ring has not done a recall on this. They have sent out a notice, and we’ll put the link here on the video saying what the problem is. And it’s an interesting problem. So again, this is not really Ring’s problem. What is happening, and I’ll pull this apart here, is people are, it has a little battery pack and you can chargeable batteries or replace them or whatever. But there’s a machine screw that covers the battery pack. Well, what people who have been purchasing this have been doing, instead of the machine screw, they’re taking the longer wood screw screwing it into the housing, and it goes into the batteries and that’s what’s causing the short or the heating and is causing the fires. They have not done a product recall (update Ring has just announced a recall), and I can understand. You can’t fix stupid. The people are going to you know if you have a machine screw and they throw a wood screw in there is that really their fault that customers are stupid. However, we call it regression towards the mean somebody you’ve got to design stuff so stupid people can’t hurt themselves. So I grabbed this Ring video doorbell that is has a battery pack. And this is generation two which they say is the problem.

Let’s see what we got. Never unboxed this one, this is brand new. So there is the Ring. For simple, easy to do, this one is not expensive. I think they’re blowing them out the door cheap right now. It’s not an expensive doorbell. It’s like 100, $150, but it’s, again, it’s not a recall. They’re just saying, and I always loved they come with a nice little kit here, a little, you know it’s got everything in here to install it quite easily. And this is the one for people who don’t have. You have the battery pack because you don’t have the doorbell wires leading to your doorbell. So this is really good with the battery pack for people who don’t have the wired system to the front door. Here is the little machine screws. So there’s one little tiny machine screw, these three other screws.

Ring Video Doorbell can catch fire if wooden screws are used instead of machine screws

Ring Video Doorbell Fire

It’s well packaged, Well, you know, well-designed like under $150, I think they’re on sale even less. Let’s warn everybody we have a video. The secret to these things really is they want you on the monthly plan. You can’t blame them for that. They wanna make money. This is a good little kit. Oh, even a little level. Oh my goodness, they got a little bit of everything in here. When you install this, with the wired system or the unwired, there are two areas they can make a mistake on. What’s happening is there, people are taking the woodscrew and there’s when they put this on the door, instead of, this is how you slow people down from stealing it. You put in the little screws on the bottom. So there are two little machine screws, go on the bottom. If you put in the two screws, it slows them down. They have to have a Torx, a small Torx. There are two little Torx screws that go in the bottom. Now what’s happening is people are either losing these because when you try, you’re trying to install this upside down and backward, you know, upside down on your door and you’re gonna lose these little screws. Yeah, it’s just a fact of life. You gotta drop them. People are dropping them, losing them. And whether they’re doing is taking the longer screw putting it into the bottom. And they’re tightening that screw all the way into the battery pack. So it’s not really Ring’s fault. So that’s why it’s, there’s a warning out to the public from Ring on this problem. And this is basically, is just basically people who don’t know the difference between a machine screw and a wood screw and people being stupid and forcing this thing. You really got to crank this to go in there and destroy that lock or destroy the battery pack. It’s a good product. I like their products, they’re good. It’s not a, it’s not a Ring problem.

If you have a sticky lock, whether it’s on your house, your business, a padlock, or your car door, a car ignition is different, if you have a sticky lock, there is a couple of solutions you can do.

Never, never put oil, or linseed oil, or motor oil, or sewing machine oil, or even graphite. Graphite, do not put that into your lock. Now, WD-40 is penetrating oil. It’s fantastic for getting a sticky lock unstuck but is not a lubricant.

My favorite for a lock is Tri-Flow, just love this stuff. Put a little spray, it does not take a lot, just put a little spray into your lock and it will be fantastic. Or now you know Lock Saver, there’s Houdini. I don’t have any Houdini handy, but this is my go-to is Tri-Flow. So again, WD-40 for sticky locks. It will unstick it, but it’s not gonna lubricate it. Tri-Flow will lubricate the lock perfectly.

Do not use graphite, graphite is bad for you. It’s not good for the locks. It’s an old way of lubricating locks, don’t do it. So go to Tri-Flow. If the lubricant does not work, it could because your key is old and worn, especially on cars we find that a lot. So cutting you a brand new key to factory code, the lock usually works perfectly after that. So it could be a worn key.

Your lock could be worn and the lubricant may be a temporary fix, but it is not going to fix the problem. You have an old lock on your door or the padlock’s old, it’s worn out, you need a new lock. And sometimes, especially with the Honda ignitions, the high security, sometimes the ignition needs to be, the parts, replaced, and you would need a new key because those things just seem to wear out.

The other issue could be that the door is sticking. So it could be the hinges are dropping, or what really happens, with the change of weather, is the latch, or the deadbolt specifically, is not lined up anymore with the hole. So I have a few more videos on how to fix that. But the way to see if it is the problem is the door frame is open the door and does the key work the lock perfectly? So if the door is open and you can turn the lock perfectly and then when you close the door and it does not lock, then the problem is with your door frame. However, if you open the door, try the key, and it’s still jammed, then the problem is your door.

Locked Out because of a Sticky Lock?

In conclusion, do not use WD-40, oil, linseed oil and do not use sewing machine oil. WD-40 is, a penetrating oil, it’s good but it is not going to lubricate your lock. Use a Lubricant that is meant for locks, Tri-Flow is my favorite. Lock Saver and Houdini are good.

If you have any recommendations, put it at the bottom. So this will help you with sticky locks.

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key in Knobs | White Rock

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key in Knobs White Rock

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Mr. Locksmith White Rock (604) 210-9875

Lots of these Rekey old style Weiser Locks Key-in-Knobs still in use. Rekeying Locks

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key-in-knobs where extremely popular long, long time ago, it was everywhere in North America. Nowadays we see less and less of them, but it’s still important to know how to rekey it. One of the key parts is identifying it. Basically, it could be a knob like that, different colors, it could be an orbit, circular, just different styles of the rose and how the lock comes out. Now one way of identifying it was, a lot of them have the push and turn lock. So on the inside to lock it, you just push and turn, and then when the key goes in, here, you turn the key, it just turns a little bit. It just pops it out and then the lock is unlocked.

Now one of the big problems of Rekey Old Style Weiser Key in Knobs is when this handle gets old, it just stays in, so the customer’s turning the key, and the key turns but the lock won’t come undone. That’s another issue, on how to get through that, but right now we’re just going to show you how to rekey them. So to rekey the lock is quite simple, there are just two small screws on here. Go ahead and take the knob off. Just loosen it a little bit, loosen the other one. You have to come in on an angle to get it out. I had somebody ask me once, “Do you have a screwdriver that will do this easier?” And I’m going, no, this is the way it is, unfortunately. Again, the brand name is Weiser, they never, we see a lot of Weiser locks now which are actually Kwikset locks, this was never part of Kwikset, so it only says Weiser, Weiser locks. It takes the Weiser key, in a pinch, you shouldn’t do it, but in a pinch you can use a Kwikset key, but that’s not proper. So basically the knob was just lock-in, and what always happens is that little spring in there would just wear out. Now they used to sell a kit, extra springs, but that was back in the day when you did a lot of repairs, and the people would replace the spring. So the lock is very simple. Take it out; now another way of identifying this, how to take it apart, is there are no holes anywhere, to press the retainer in to remove this cylinder, or the knob. In the back here, see how it’s springy? What we have to do to remove this, we have to hold this out, and then, you see when it was locked, the key only turns that far, to unlock the door. When we wanna rekey it, we pull out the rear post, and at basically the five o’clock, 10 to five position, and it just comes out. And you can see here we can take our bible, to put it back together again, we have our bible, we have the little slot there in the knob, so we’ll put it back at 10 to five, that’s the time I call it, hold out the little post again, and you put it in at 10 to five, and basically put it back in. Sometimes it can be sticky, but the biggest problem is just pull that out, turn it, boom. If you don’t have a key, now it gets a little bit more difficult, but again, it’s a Weiser, it’s extremely easy to pick, just pick it to that position, just pick it over, just hold the post out, pick it to the 10 to five position, and sometimes you can push on this a little bit and it will push out the cylinder. Now to rekey it is interesting. Now if you don’t have key, if you have a key you can take it apart, but if you don’t have a key you have to shim it, and again, it’s a Weiser, it’s easy to pick, easy to shim. So we got the cylinder, so to take out the plug, got the little circlip, and I love this, this is Snap-on, it lasts me forever, and if it breaks they give me a new one. Just gently, just open it up just that little bit. Insert your key, turn it slightly, I have an HPC, hollow follower, just fits on there really nice. And it’s five pins. And we have done enough rekeying videos, this one’s lucky, it’s got the, got the code on there, it’s a direct code. We can just pin it up with the lab kit, and then when you put it back in, just make sure you put it on a slight angle and just put the plug back into the cylinder. Take out the key. I am doing this for the camera, but it’s best to put it on your desk flat. I got my little Snap-on tool. Again, don’t go crazy on opening this, and just put it back on. Always test, test, test. Sounds perfect, clips on good. Now I put it in the 10 to five position. Put my bible into the little spot there. And give it a little twist to make sure that the little post has engaged the back of the lock. So again, there are some different methods, this is the simplest, pull out the post, hold it, some people put a pair of pliers on the back, turn it, now this one did come out extremely easy, let me show you a tougher one here. So that one’s really easy. Here’s another one, this is a real old one I got kicking around. Old one with a new insert. How does this one? See, this one’s not coming out so easy. So again, I’ll just push on the post a little bit, there we go. So basically I’m just pushing on that, and it just pushes it out. So this one’s a little bit more awkward and tougher. And it goes in okay. Rekey Old Style Weiser Key in Knobs. Still see them out there, and you could also see different colors and a different knob style, but again, the secret is it’s got the post on the back.
