All is not well…
From Andy Swanson of Mid-Central Door. Today’s the last day to send in photos for a chance to win a 5th birthday present – a $50 Amazon gift card!
For us dummies who don’t get the picture…. What’s the significance of the Sargent Assa Abloy lock sitting on a Schlage key?
Brad, the plug in the cylinder is a Schlage Primus.
It’s not the cylinder and key placement that’s a problem…it’s that somehow a Schlage Primus high-security core has been installed in a Sargent cylinder.
I’m assuming that is a stunt pic and it doesnt really function…..
Ebony & Ivory!
LOL – literally!
The plug face is bigger than the cut-out in the cylinder face. A miscalculation in Photoshop.
I changed my mind – I just checked and a Schlage plug will slide into a Sargent cylinder shell but the head is too big and it sticks out a bit. When you close one eye to simulate a 2D photo, it looks just like the photo above.
I am surprised the Schlage core isn’t red with shame for being caught is such a seedy neighborhood
funny about brands… a schlage mortise case does not have a one-piece solid face frame. just a folded shell and 2 loose mounting tabs.. now, go try to kick in a door with a once piece face frame, like yale or sargent..
This was not photo shopped – my locksmith took this picture.
Lori, where is the photo from? The common denominator between Primus from Schlage and some of the ASSA key systems are of course that they were invented and patented by lock legend Bo Widen from Sweden.
Hi Peter –
I’m pretty sure the photo was taken in Minnesota.
Obviously this is the CIA/KGB/Mossad’s next foray into high security. SOMEONE is taking over the world!
Bottom line folks, this is just a cute joke. Smoke and mirrors. Show me a cylinder like this that actually works correctly and then you will have done something
not sure if that’s “cross-breeding” or “in-breeding”… :(o)
