Shlage’s new lock design enables homeowners to re-key locks and deadbolts in two easy steps with no extra tools.

Imagine if you could change the locks in your home without actually replacing them or calling in a locksmith to re-key them.  Nice huh?

Homeowners can re-key Schlage’s new SecureKey™ locks and deadbolts in a matter of seconds without removing the lock from the door. Unlike traditional pin-and-tumbler locks, which must be removed from the door and disassembled for re-keying, SecureKey locks and deadbolts, which are available at retailers nationwide, employ a new high-security design that makes re-keying quick and simple without compromising security. Security is actually enhanced through the use of a pick-resistant Grade 1* cylinder and a special locking sidebar that protects against lock

The SecureKey design is 10 times more secure from key duplication than other re-keyable systems on the market.

Rekeying:  As Simple as One-Two:

Rekeying Schlage SecureKey deadbolts and locks is a simple two-step procedure that does not require any extra tools. Simply insert the cut blue Reset Key included with every SecureKey lock, turn it to the 11:00 position and remove the key. Then insert a new cut blue Reset Key that matches the new keys for the lock, turn it back to the 12:00 position and you’re done. The lock is now re-keyed to the new key.

All SecureKey locks come with two cut brass keys and one matching cut Blue Reset Key as well as one blank Reset Key, which could be cut to match an existing key, for  example. Reset Kits with two brass keys and one Reset Key (all with the same key cut) will be available for a suggested retail price of $5.99. Blank Reset Keys will also be available for a suggested retail of $1.99 each. Visit www.schlage.comfor a demonstration of the amazingly simple rekeying process.

SecureKey locks cost the same as Schlage’s conventional locks and are available in all styles of residential deadbolts and door locks, including handlesets, at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menards and other chains and independent home improvement and hardware Schlage’s New SecureKey High-Security Locks stores around the country. SecureKey locks are also available online at and
