The 1 pin lock can be opened with just a stern look, but the 5 pin lock will take a bit of effort, and the ones in between... well, you get the idea.
Over this past weekend, we changed the locks in our new house and I was faced with discarding 5 locks. Hmmm... 5 locks... 5 pins in a lock... waitaminute, let's make a set of progressive locks!
Here's how to turn Kwikset locks into progressives:
- Small flat head screwdriver for prying
- Needle nose pliers
- A set of lock picks (for testing!)
- A bunch of spare locks that you own
1. Take off the outer ring and discard.
