SOURCE: Key will not turn on deadbolt

The pins are probably frozen. Spray some w/d in lock, then try with key, keep repeating till key turns, this should free up lock. Dirt and moisture gets in lock cyl and gets gummed up. You could also remove handle and have locksmith take apart and clean, they will then use graphite instead of w/d wich attracts dirt.

How do I remove a brinks deadbolk lock from door

1. Open the door.
2. Unscrew the 2 screws on the inside and the 2 screws on the edge of the door.
3. Pull the thumb turn off, pull the outside cylinder and ring off, and pull the deadbolt assembly out of the edge of the door.
4. Unscrew the strike plate from the door frame and remove it and the plastic thing behind it, if it was installed.
5. Throw the whole thing in the trash. I wouldn't even reuse the screws!

Why can i not get extra keys made for your padlocks?

I think a local locksmith would either be able to make the keys or give you a reason why keys can not be made for your locks. Look up 'locksmith' in your local yellow pages.

I bought Rona Collections Electronic Deadbolt. My problem is when my door is locked and when you pressed padlock button without entering your pin code the door will unlock. Any solution to this problem?...

You must ensure the deadbolt is in the locked position when attaching the control mechanism. The control mechanism must also be set to the locked position. Turn the manual knob to the left then attach the mechanism (with the batteries) to the flat pin. You can do all of this with the door open, so you can enter the codes. My initial install created the same issue. It worked properly out of the package, so that meant that I screwed something up. You don't need to return the item. Just do a little fault finding.

I am trying to replace brass Schlage deadbolt locks with black. I need to adjust the deadbolt from 2 3/8 to 2 3/4 before I install the deadbolt. I can not get the deadbolt to turn in the groove.

Home Depot has a template and tool that will make the hole bigger, it comes with everything you need except a drill. I think its around $20. It clamps on to the door and has the holes alighned to be drilled. Good luck. remember, it is important to get the holes centered!

The door locks when you put in the code and unlocks when you push the lock button.

Your problem is likely that the lock is programmed for the "wrong-hand"-left door versus right door installation. Here's a link to the installation instructions; pay close attention to step 8:

I put in my code and it locks however when returning home if you push the lock button in the middle it will unlock with no code punch in?

Here is the link to the installation instructions:

I think that you may have the door jumper set in the wrong position for the way your door opens (door handing; see page 6 of the instructions).

A note about the PDF files: If you cannot view a given file, you need to first install Adobe reader. You can get the free download from here:

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.
