The lock tang (the item between the two lock parts inside the door) has been turn 180 degree out of position. Take the lock off, turn tang 180 degrees, reassamble, and it should work like new.

I just installed a Schlage deadbolt. If I lock it from the outside (using the key) it locks fine, but I can't remove the key without unlocking it. Now What?


Hi Winston:
Is it possible to try this:
- pull the lock from the door while leaving the deadbolt in place
- turn the mechanism 180 degrees.
- re-install and give it a try.
Let me know how you progress.

Rekeying house door lock


rekeying depends on the specific brand of lock you have.

The easiest solution would be to replace your current locks with the same brand. Figure out how many of which locks you want to change, ie: deadbolts, entry knobs, etc. and buy matched sets from your local hardware store. They are marked with a key code on the box...make sure they match if you want the keys to be the same.

How do I fix a Schlage deadbolt. B60 series will not unlock from the inside unless the key is inserted from the outside


With the door open, remove the interior trim (thumb turn) from the door, and using the key, turn the deadbolt to the locked position. Now re-install the thumb turn, in the locked position, and with the key removed see if you are able to unlock the deadbolt. I suspect that the tailpiece (part that sticks out of the lock cylinder and into the thumb turn) is not in the correct position.

Schlage deadbolt will not unlock even with the use of a key?


it sounds as though the linkage that pulls the deadbolt back has disengaged... if you undo the screws from the inside of the door and remove the manual knob there will be 2 more screws holding the key lock to the door. A thin flat bar is attached to the key lock that goes through the deadbolt and into the manual knob. This bar turns with the key, sliding the bolt on its track to lock and unlock the door. Once the lock is apart check the key in the lock to see if the bar turns when the key does. then see if there is anything that may be obstructing the deadbolt from sliding. The locks are pretty indestructible so if there is a problem it may have been from the install... perhaps the door is to wide for the lock to engage properly and the lock worked loose in the 6 months that it worked.

Key won't turn deadbolt


Try using your smartkey to "rekey" the lock to the original key... there's really no reason to buy the smartkey system unless you change locks alot... they are meant for the apartment industry more than anything I believe... in any case, the smartkey system allows you to rekey the lock without removing it from the door... so, use the original key and use the smartkey to rekey it or select a different cut and key it to that key... should solve your problem.

Last resort... take it back to HD for replacement.

I have deadbolt segal lock that was working for 2 months. suddenly today i can't lock the door from the inside. locking works from the outside. when i lock it from the outside i can unlock it from the...


Sounds like the tumbling mechanism for the handle may be off......check to make sure that the screws are tight that lock the front and back of the deadbolt together. Make sure that the door is fully closed and check to see where the deadbolt is hitting the striker. It mat be as simple as the door and frame have expanded a bit and the door is not fully seated when you close the door from the inside. See if these help if not please contact me as I wish to find a solution to your problem.

Thx

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.

Lost keys to my Entry door lock


Visit your local Home Depot and purchase a Kwikset re-keying kit. They're inexpensive and work fine but stay alert and follow the instructions properly. This kit comes complete with proper pins as well as new keys. Good Luck!
