Would a Weiser WR5 Bump Key work with a lock that uses a Weiser WR3 key to open it?

Thanks!

I'd like to know this also. I ordered a WR5 key but it seems most of my locks (including the one I bought for practice) are WR3. I'm Canadian, btw.

When my keys get here I'll give it a shot and report back.

I found out that WR3 and WR5 are interchangeable, so we are in luck. :)

Yeah, a WR3/WR5 would work with a WR2. I read that somewhere.

i just bought a wr5 key, and recieved it today. i am wondering if it is supposed to have 5 or 6 pins, because the one i have has 6 pins, and i thought it was a 5 pin key.


also could you bump a 5 pin lock, with a 6 pin key. like for example, the sc4 (6pin) in a lock that is originally a key with a sc1(5 PIN)


thanks.

As long as the keys are compatible (spacing between pins is right, depths are the same, etc.) and the key fits in the keyhole, it can bump it.

Thus, an SC4 will bump an SC1 keyway, as the SC4 has six pins where the SC1 has five, as you stated. The SC20, although the keyway is different, will fit, and because it's still a standard Schlage keyway, it will bump both of them, and all others. :D

The WR5 is, by the way, a five pin system. However, it may be cut with an extra groove to facilitate the pull out method, if the extra groove is on the tip; or to be a handy key that will also bump a six pin WR4, if the tip is normal but the extra groove is behind where the fifth pin falls in a five pin Weiser cylinder.

Yeah, a WR3/WR5 would work with a WR2. I read that somewhere.

Could you please post the resources where yo read because I also want to clarify that.
