DIY: Rekey a Schlage deadbolt

I recently learned how to rekey Schlage deadbolts. With a screw driver and a rekey kit (around $10), you can rekey a lock without calling a lock smith!

Rekey kit I used:
Prime-Line Products E 2402 Schlage Type C Re-Keying Kit, 5 Pin

It come with 3 keys and allow you to rekey up to 6 locks. It came with instruction as well, but video tutorials are extremely helpful

According to Amazon customer Mr. H, "If you want to know if you have a 5 pin lock, count the number of depressions on your house key. There should be five."
