Old key is needed to take out lock cylinder plug then new key is used to rekey lock. CHANGE-A-LOCK® rekey kits can not be used with old key to rekey other locks for the color coded pins match the new key cut. Each rekeying kit has easy-to-follow instructions and precut keys, and is specifically designed for a certain lock type. They will not fit any other manufacturer's lock types. Customers with more than 6 single cylinder locks may, at time of ordering, add additional pin sets and/or precut keys which will match the kit ordered.
Note: You must use the keys provided in rekey kit for rekeying. Pins match keys in kit and are not to be used to rekey with any other keys!
If you order 2 or more rekey kits and wish to have them keyed the same please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately after placing your order. We can not match manufacturer's original key code with pins or keys.
NOTE: BALDWIN®, EMTEK®, & PEGASUS® LOCKS must have the Schlage KEY compatible cylinder AND YALE LOCKS must have the KWIKSET KEY compatible cylinder for rekey kit to work!
NOTE: WEISER "ELEMENT" LOCKS order the KWIKSET 5 pin rekey kit for the ELEMENT takes apart the same as the KWIKSET LOCK.
ALERT: 6 PIN CYLINDER Schlage®, Baldwin®,
Emtek®, & Pegasus® 5-pin 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
