Question about Locks & Locksmithing
I was rekeying a deadbolt lock and the top pins fell out. is there a way to find out how to replace the pins back and what order.
Sure. You need to install the key in the cylinder and keep it turned so the pins are on top. Then you install the pins one at a time in each hole until all the pins fit level with the top of the cylinder, You will probably have to re-arrange the pins once or twice to get the correct length in the correct hole but once all the pins are level you're home free.

The springs (which should be all the same length) go in the cylinder before the pins I believe. It's been a long time since I've done any lockwork so you might have to experiment. Lots of luck and hope I was some help.
