Walmart, home depot, ebay, anywhere really. Or you could take apart a lock from a door that you really don't use that often and try that one out. It's not that hard to take them apart, usually just two screws, from the inner side of the door of course.

Sorry to state the obvious but there is a site with billions of pages of info... take a look for yourself. You're bound to find some locks that are useful.

Listen, people are willing to help people who help themselves. No one is going to give you links to something that is so widely available and you can find on google. If it were something more specific and you said you've already looked around and couldn't find it then someone might help.

I am a bit tired of buying locks at 20-30 bucks a piece. I have found that after a while, I'll bump a lock long enoug hthat the dimple will make it so it is almost impossible to bump. Is there some way that I can buy a box of, 20 schlage cylinders or something? Is that what you guys have been doing?

ummm.. I'm not sure what the trouble is when searching but a quick search on "fleabay" alone yielded quite a few cylinders or locks. Most are well below $10... Even full locks can be had below $10 and you can take the cylinder out pretty easily if you REALLY want (screwdriver).

The search terms? "schlage cylinder", "yale cylinder", "kwikset cylinder", etc.. You can even add "lock" to your search terms if you want.

Didn't take a "long ass time" either... About 5 seconds for me (actual results may vary depending on connection speed).

Well put --

As you said all it took was a quick search. I have no problem helping someone, but really - people have to help themselves first!

I googled it for you, and guess what, it was the very first result. What a surprise.

Check with a locksmith.

When bldgs are constructed or when they change to a different type cylinder the old ones often get tossed.

We switched our bldg from Schlage to Peaks a few years ago and threw away almost 300 cylinders.

To practice what I always do is check my local locksmith stores and ask them for old and unused locks for practice and I think that is a good idea to practice.
