Interchangeable Core High Security Locks

Best locks (interchangeable core) and Best keys have been around for years. Best locks are high quality and come in two formats, which are large format interchangeable cores and small format. 

They make housings that will take an interchangeable core for almost any application. 

Some include smart locks, cylinder locks, mortise locks, door locks and many more.

Locking and unlocking interchangeable core locks is the same as any other lock. 

Key goes in, turns left or right. But unlike standard locks, to remove the cylinder from the door you use a specialized control key.

What Is An Interchangeable Core Control Key?

IC locks can be keyed individually to keep the doors secure, or master keyed. Master keying the lock takes away from the security because it allows more keys to pass through the lock.

IC lock keying systems have a lug that hold them into the cylinder deadbolt.

 A Kwikset 980 lock only has one shearline in it. A core lock has two shearlines, one for the lock mechanism. One to pull the core plug, for service. The core can only be pulled with a core key, or control key.

When removing the core with the control key, it only turns just a little to retract the lug. If no control key is available, it must be drilled. Lock picking to the control position is usually very hard.

We Service Best Locks 

If you need to purchase a new IC system Assa Abloy Group Company sells them. 

We will also sell the parts without the express cost of dealing with the corporate giant. We replaced last August Smart Locks with an IC system. 

Our systems also replace the interior strike plates, to stop forced entry. Liberty Locksmiths shop location is at 176 Gulf Freeway South Ste. A-3 League City Texas 77573.
