Insert the key rotating the plug ninety degrees clockwise. Place in the change tool into the access hole, which should be in the twelve o’clock position, and push in to the interior of the deadbolt.

Upon completion of this first step a spring action will be noticeable as the change tool is completely seated which lifts the rack outward, away from the movable blocks separating them from the rack but still linked to the lock tumblers.

Do away with the former operating key and place in a new key with a new combination. After inserting the new key the tumblers and blocks will be moved into the new key combination.

Follow this by removing the change tool and a spring in the housing forces the rack inside to the blocks keeping them held in their new arrangement.

Lastly, turn the key to the vertical position counter clockwise. This will make the V notches in the tumblers press into the projections on the blocks moving the sidebar out and in a locked position and any old keys will be unable to be used.
