  3. For those of us who have to rekey these most Schlage depth gauges have one or two notches machined into them that make removing these pesky cylinder retainer clips easier. As for picking these can be rascals until you figure them out. Well done.

  4. I just found this video and  thought I would add my own.
    Roger Shoaf nailed it. Schlage, in order to save money, switched from a two piece F series knob to a one piece knob. In order to get the cylinder in they had to totally redesign it. Yes they didn't save much money and made the F series even easier to pick and bump open. You have to use a pick or thin piece of metal to depress the retaining cap to get the POS in & out of the knob now.
    Bill was incorrect about how the pins are in the lock. The small part of the pin is for the spring to go over. If you try to use standard Schlage drivers, the retainer will pop off. Also if turned over, the pins will get caught in the construction ball holes(those little extra holes by the pin holes) totally locking up the cylinder and you'd have use the F series bypass tool to press the retainer to release the knob.

  5. These locks use the T pins, but this was not done to increase security, it was done to allow a design change in the knob.  There was not enough room for standard pins and the T pins allow the cap to be depressed in order to be inserted in the knob.

  6. I've never picked T-pins b4?? I'm not much for taking locks apart, as they don't ever seem to go back together, easily…and I end up pissed off in the end! So… Anyway did you ever track down your Canadian traveling lockbox's? I know I keep asking but I keep hoping that someone may have let you (like they should) that they have one and who they are sending it to.
    Peace n Tanks for your channel it's the best!(as if you didn't know) Lol keep it up Bro!

  7. lol at 5:05 " let me get a pair of tweez… woop carp!" then the guy in the background lets you know you dropped the pin as if you didn't see it flying at your face

  8. Nice job Bill and thanks for the insight on picking t pins. Sorry I so confusing in my note. I wasn't suggesting serrated pins were in there, just my trouble at picking them. Also in that core there is kind of a rim at the bottom of each tubes in the bible. Crazy thing! Thanks again.
