So, I learned a few things today while I was out shopping. I went back to Lowe's to see if they would give me any security pins. So I ask the guy there if he has any. He didn't know what a security pin was *sigh*. Eventually I drew him a picture and he understood. Apparently, the only time they see top pins is when they screw up while re-keying.
So on to the actual locks I looked through. The Lowe's brand Gatehouse locks don't have any security pins unfortunately (They are bottom of the line deadbolts, although people apparently think they protect their houses. You get what you pay for when you buy a deadbolt for $13...). The next set of locks they had were Kwikset locks. Unfortunately they were either smartkey locks or basic locks without security pins. Next to the Kwikset locks were Shlage. They had security pins but are a little above my budget unfortunately.
So Lowe's wasn't much help (Although I did get a few files, a pair of safety glasses and a few key blanks. Impressioning here I come
). So I went over to Walmart to see what they had in terms of deadbolts. They were much more helpful and I found a brinks security double cylinder deadbolt for $17. It was very easy to take apart and the piece on the back that prevents the core from coming out simply screws off. Inside the actual lock there were 2 spool pins and 3 normal top pins.
So I tried picking some of the spool pins. It was pretty interesting. I read elsewhere to put very light tension and let the cylinder turn back slightly as you press down the spool. It worked better than I expected.
So a busy day overall, but I got quite a bit done
