*Bump Keys are ON SALE*
Question about the SC20
Posted 22 September 2006 - 03:20 PM
Now my question is it indeed ONLY a 6-pin key? but then on your site for the SC20 the picture shows it as a 5-pin key... plus another thing... if it IS indeed a ONLY a 6-pin then how will it work as a skeleton key on 5 pin schlages?
and i did search around for it online.. i've only seen 6 pin ones... can anyone help me out on this one?

hmm funny enough i went down the the locksmith later on today and he made me a SC19! and he said THATS the 5 pin one and the SC20 is the 6 pin... and theyre the same thing basically, its just 19=5pin 20=6 pin... cool.... thanks for the replies anyway guys
Your locksmith is correct, there are two different keys specifically for 5 pin keyways and 6 pin keyways, but as I tried explaining before the 6 pin key works perfectly fine in the 5 pin keyway. A bit unecessary, but hey, if you feel more comfortable with two keys then it's up to you.
It does seem that you need to do a bit of research on how the keys actually work www.toool.nl/bumping.pdf if you did then you would understand why a 6 pin key would work in a 5 pin keyway.
Also when starting out remember not to practice on a lock that you use often as you might damage the lock.
