Your taking the lock apart for what reason? If you need a key for this lock, I would highly recommend a locksmith. You won't be able to make a key for this unless you have the proper equipment.

Front door lock jammed after reassembling. 6 pin lock reassembled and is now jammed. I've taken a 6 pin lock apart, well it came apart in my hand, and think I may have put the pins back in the wrong...

Locksmiths can often solve this problem by using a very thin Stainless Steel shim. It needs to be stiff enough to push between the tumbler pins at the shear line, but thin enough to slide between the plug and the cylinder body. The pins must be raised with a pick or key blank until the shim slides through one pin chamber at a time. When all pins are aligned at the shear line, the plug will rotate and the cylinder can be disassembled. You might have a missing spring or part of a spring jammed

No key for a schlage dead bolt i like to rekay

If you don't know how to open a lock cylinder in your hand, you probably should take it to a professional locksmith. They don't charge much to rekey a lock that you bring into the shop, and they can usually do it in under ten minutes. Twelve minutes if you don't bring a key that can open it.

That said, you can open it by shimming with a key blank and a shim, bumping with a bump key, removing the slide or top of the cylinder, picking with a pick, pick gun, or electric pick, key picking it, using tryout keys, rapping it open with a hammer handle, or simply wiggling every old key you can find in it until it either turns or you run out of old keys.

Look down the end with the hole where there is a knurled knob inscribed "reset" on the end with an arrow . Turn to the right - clockwise - following the arrow. Now set the new number you want. Then twist the knurled knob back to the left... and you've done it!

Cannot unlock my husbands tsa lock we are in argentina

To set/reset combination on TSA Cable Lock

TSA Cable Locks come preset from the factory to 0-0-0. Set the combination to 0-0-0 or your already chosen combination. if different than 0-0-0. To set the combination, use a pointed device such as a pen to press in on B. While pressing on B (do not release B until combination is set), pick your 3 digit combination.

Once all 3 dials are set to the combination you want, release B. Your TSA Cable lock Is now set to your combination. TSA Lock will NOT be locked at this new combination - turn one or more dials and your lock will be locked. To unlock, follow instructions above.

Please make sure to remember your combination!

Make right door knobs to left

You mean you have levers that don't look right? Or you have keys upside down? Most of the levers come apart, there is a little hole or slot in the stem that you stick a pointed tool, it will release the lever, you switch it out with the other side. The same goes with the knob, you have to pull the key side apart and flip the lock over and put it all back together. The hardware store usually has someone who does this stuff, they can do it ten times faster than you can.
