Master 6835 ProSeries

I have this Master 6835 ProSeries I have not been able to pick, so I took it apart to see what was on the inside.

Seems like 4 spool pins, but I am confused because only 4 pins? with 6 pin holes? I am pretty sure that none went flying I took it apart in a contained area.

Also the 6th hole doesn't even have a spring in it.

So I was wondering if any of you guys could shed some light on this?

Re: Master 6835 ProSeries

I find the key way very small on the pro series I use TOK and a small short hook . I tend to over set the non spool pin that you are missing there should be one regular or serrated and 4 spools .

Not too unusual to see an unused hole on some makes of locks. Master/American frequently do that, from what I've seen. How many cuts on the key?

yeah I have trouble with the keyway I used TOK but only have a standard wrench so it sticks out and is hard.. if I put the pick in first I can put the wrench in the bottom but the wrench still seems to be in the way. One of my next upgrades is going to be some smaller wrenches.

I think 5? I put it back together with the 4 spools in the 1st 4 holes and it seems to work normal.

Re: Master 6835 ProSeries

Tok wrenches are great there are all kinds of different ones you can make . There are vids were you can see homade ones to copy . The Peterson pry bar are the best commercial ones I have used . It gives you a lot more room
In small or restrictive key way . One of the easiest one to make is out of hard wire bent at a 90% angle and cut short and filed flat to fit the key way.

Re: Master 6835 ProSeries

yeah its a 5 pin lock witha 6 pin cylinder... not that big a deal...

and I even have an answer to the 4 drivers and 5 keypins....

ITS MADE BY MASTER... what else did you expece ;)

it means if you did pick it... you would have streched that 5th spring around the plug... doing some serious damage

It's a 5 pin lock. You're missing driver pin (probably a spooled pin) found its way into the sixth chamber.:wink:

Edit: That happens when the cylinder isn't turned before pulling/pushing it out of the housing. You actually got lucky that it didn't lock up on you.
