Question about Garden

Open Question

Today, purchased a Schlage security set-keyed 2 sides home security set that supposedly includes an F-51 series self re-keyable entry door knob. Have self-re-keyed deadbolt to match previously purchased sets, but the F-51 does not allow me to re-key to match my other sets. Per instructions, should use re-keying key to turn lock 30 degrees left to an 11 o'clock position, remove, insert re-keying key from previous sets, turn back to 12 o'clock position and remove. Latch should be re-keyed at that point. F-51 does not allow re-keying key to be removed at the 11 o'clock position, nor any position except the 12 o'clock. The objective is to have 1 key to open 3 deadbolts and 3 F-51 style door locks. For the 3 deadbolts, mission accomplished. For 2 of the 3 F-51's, mission accomplished. Label on box: FB52NSK V PLY 505 605 CN; Function Security Set-Keyed 2 Sides; Style Plymouth Knob; Finish Lifetime Bright Brass\Bright Brass.. Instructions say do not return to store of purchase.

SOURCE: Lost entry door key, need to rekey kwikset deadbolt

Unfortunatley you need to have the key to remove the cylinder. You can take it to a locksmith that can pick" it to remove the cylinder and make you a key but it may be more cost effective to replace it.

Sorry not to be mre help.

SOURCE: new schlage deadbolt stuck in locked position

Make sure that the tang from the lock side actually engage the mechanism in other side of the door. If the tang is too short or not engaged the lock will not work. Also check that the two screws connecting the lock to the other side is actually tight.

SOURCE: I am trying to replace

Home Depot has a template and tool that will make the hole bigger, it comes with everything you need except a drill. I think its around $20. It clamps on to the door and has the holes alighned to be drilled. Good luck. remember, it is important to get the holes centered!

We recently had a new door installed. It had a schlage lock. Can we program our other Schlage door locks so that one key fits all door? The locks are standard, not keypad.

Any locksmith can do it,BUT- if you go to hardware store you can find locks that have a number on the front of the box that says something like 'TypeA, or Type B' If you purchase the same lock type with the same number or letter, they will all use the same keys included. It's much cheaper than a locksmith.

I need to set/change the code on my Schlage lock but the sticker is completely unreadable.

I do not believe you will be able to reprogram the lock without the programming code, usually found on the sticker (unreadable, in your case).
Therefore, I urge you to call Schlage directly-they may be able to help you. here is the contact information:
United States Customer Support
Warranty & Technical Information: 1.888.805.9837

You are right about the support link going 404-It used to work. Get there by going
and clicking on "For your home"
Mouse over the "Service & Support" link, then go down & left click on "Instruction & Manuals". There ya go!

How can I program my electronic keypad lock when the instructions with the programming code have been lost?
The back plate of the keypad side of the lock on the exterior of the door has a sticker which includes the serial number, six digit programming code and two pre-programmed four digit user codes. The lock must be disassembled to a point the exterior of the lock can be pulled away from the door and the information on the sticker made note of.
This number is the programming code referenced in the information for changing the entry code.

This link will take you to the page that you need to get started:

Then scroll down to this heading on that page:
Electronic Security-Keypad Entry Flex-lock FE595/Keypad Entry Auto-Lock FE575 Documents

There's a wealth of info under that heading. You will be able to see a PDF file of the original print instructions, as well as a video of how to install the lock. This installation video (third item down) will be useful to allow you to disassemble it and view the sticker. This is also a great time to change the 9-volt battery! Batteries should be replace about every three years.
The eighth item under that same header is a video which walks you through how to reprogram the keypad to your new code, using that programming code that you found on the backside of the keypad.
A note about the PDF files: If you cannot view a given file, you need to first install Adobe reader. You can get the free download from here:

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

You did not indicate whether this is a new installation that you are having difficulty with,but I'm going to assume that it is.

I'm going to direct you to a web page that has a wealth of information for the Schlage locks:

This page has links to the PDF file of the installation instructions, which you should already have in your possession:

Also, there are two videos that may be helpful in troubleshooting your problem:

Installing your FE 595 Keypad Entry Lock video:

And, Programming Your FE 595 Keypad Entry Lock:

The reason that I think it's a good idea to review these two videos is that again, assuming this is a new installation, is that you may spot a mistake in the initial installation process.

Was the "Thumbturn" in the proper position when the inside plate was installed? (Shown at the 5 minute mark of the installation video)

Also to be found on the Service Support page link is a link to Schlage's Service & Support
which will allow you to contact Schlage if the problem remains unresolved after reviewing your installation.

I hope this helped. Good luck!

Schlage Secure key deadbolt is seized up. The reset key will not move at all in the lock. It is supposed to move 30 degrees to the left to reset the lock. It worked once. We have been using our front...

The best way to free up a lock is with graphite powder. Give it a good dose (put down some newspaper first to catch any falling particles) and "puff" it in. Do this several times, working the key between times and after. If it is still stubborn, loosen the interior bolts that hold the halves together. Loosen just enough so that the halves can re-orient themselves slightly (called "wiggling in"). You'll find a spot where the lock works smoothest. Tighten up the blots, but don't over tighten. Continue to work the key until you're satisfied that the position is as good as you can get it. Graphite is available at Lowe's, Home Depot or even Hobby Lobby (used for Pinewood Derby cars). Same stuff. By the bye, you should use graphite on all your locks from time-to-time. It keeps the cylinder, springs and pins freed up, making the action of the locks very smooth. I never work on a lock without adding graphite powder first.

Best regards, --W/D--

Cannot remove an old schlage door knob. There is a small hole on the underside of each handle. What do I need to do to get the handles off? I don't know name or item # but the page makes me choose one.

It is a small allen key (hex head) that comes with the lockset when purchased. They are just threaded into the handle (knob) and sets into a reset when threaded in. You can take some putty and push it into the hole and gently remove to make a negative imprint of the allen key, go to a local home center like Lowes or H. Depot and match it up. You can buy a set of allen keys that are like a pocket knife with multiple allen keys. Note, it is very thin. An alternative is to purchase another similar Schlage lockset, open carefully, use the key, and return the lockset saying it is the wrong one. Not nice to do, but in this economy every penny counts. I hope this helps and good luck.
