Simple re-keying for bump resistant residential locks

Schlage : 07 January, 2010  (New Product)
Schlage will be at the International Builders Show demonstrating innovative residential door locks that are resistant to picking and bumping and allows the lock to be re-keyed in a simple two-step process
Jobsites will now be more secure and home builders will be able to quickly change keys at any time during construction with the new line of SecureKey bump- and pick-resistant residential door locks Schlage is introducing at the International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, January 19-22.

Unlike traditional pin-and-tumbler locks, which must be removed from the door and disassembled for rekeying, SecureKey locks and deadbolts employ a new high-security design that enables them to be rekeyed in seconds—without removal from the door and without compromising security. Security is actually enhanced through the use of a pick-resistant Grade 1 cylinder and a special locking sidebar that protects against lock bumping. The SecureKey design provides well over 100,000 possible key combinations, making it 10 times more secure from key duplication than other rekeyable systems on the market.

Rekeying Schlage SecureKey deadbolts and locks is a simple two-step procedure that does not require any extra tools. Simply insert the blue Reset Key included with every SecureKey lock, turn it to the 11:00 position and remove the key. Then insert a new blue Reset Key that matches the new keys for the lock, turn it back to the 12:00 position and you're done. The lock is now rekeyed to the new key.

"The beauty of SecureKey is that in addition to providing greater security and convenience for builders and homeowners it saves time and money since no special skills are required to rekey a lock," said Eric Deddens, Vice President of Sales and Marketing-Builder Channels for Ingersoll Rand, the parent company of Schlage. "Rekeying can be done by anyone and it takes seconds instead of minutes, which is significant for builders who need to change and manage keys for many homes during various stages of construction, including when a home is ready to be turned over to the new owner.

"With other rekeyable locks you have to insert a separate tool into a small hole located on the cylinder and make sure it's pushed all they way in, which adds a third step and opens the possibility of a rekeying error," explains Deddens. "With SecureKey, rekeying is facilitated by the Reset Key alone, resulting in a process that is streamlined, virtually fool-proof and more secure due to the unique key design."

A plus sign on the face of the lock cylinder makes it easy to identify SecureKey products, which can be keyed to other Schlage C keyway 5-pin products, making it easy to manage keys with staff and sub-contractors. Other SecureKey benefits include:

* The lock cannot be forced into rekey mode with a generic tool or foreign object because the unique blue Reset Key must be inserted to rekey the lock.

* The lock is secure even when the lock is in its rekey position, which is not the case with other rekeyable locks on the market.

* Once the lock is in its rekey position, builders can give any set of keys to the homeowner, making it easy to manage keys for each home.

SecureKey locks cost the same as Schlage's conventional locks and will be available in all styles of residential deadbolts and door locks, including handlesets. Demonstrations will be ongoing during IBS at Schlage's booth (C3142) in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
