End user restricted full size keyways.Schlage restricted keyways are for end users – they are not for dealer programs. Keyways and key sections in the Everest 29 T family are named with a “T” followed by three digits, such as T123. Restricted keyways are not shown for security reasons, but their ten keyways are similar to those of the S family. Cylinders with Everest 29 T family keyways are 6-pin and cannot be interkeyed with any 5- or 7-pin products. In addition, Everest 29 T keys can be used to open T keyways or Everest D keyways, but cannot be used to open Everest Primus XP locks with a T keyway. Everest 29 T cylinders can be stocked by commercial distribution channel less keys, for quick delivery time to end user, as sub-assembled (all cylinders type) or 0 bitted for FSIC.
Key control.All Everest 29 T family keys are protected against unauthorized manufacture and distribution by U.S. utility patents 7,665,337 until 2029. These keyways offer substantial key control at a mid-price point between conventional cylinders and Primus XP high security cylinders. The Schlage Master Key Department randomly assigns the keyway(s) for each job. There is no geographic exclusivity. A letter of authorization on the end user’s official stationery controls where the restricted material is sent.
Establishing a new key system.Restricted keyways are reserved for large key systems. A letter of authorization on the end user’s official stationery must be submitted with the initial order to establish the authorized ship-to location.
Ordering products for existing systems.Restricted keyway locks, cylinders and blanks on subsequent orders will be drop-shipped to the location originally specified by the end user. Any order that must be shipped to a different destination or change of supplier requires a letter of authorization on the end user’s official stationery.
Key machines.Factory provides key blanks which can be cut on key punch #40-099, or use rotary cutter key machines to duplicate these keys or cut them by code. Standard Schlage depths and spacing are used, so there are no new settings for code machines.
Pin kits.Cylinders with T family keyways are compatible with all existing Schlage pin kits. However, Schlage recommends purchasing a pack of 34-007 check pins and C603-951 check pin springs to replace these two Everest components should they get lost during servicing.
Distribution.Available to Schlage commercial end user customers only.
Everest 29 R keyway – restricted security for SFICEverest 29 R keyways provide restricted security because distribution and duplication are limited. These recently redesigned cores deliver even higher performance and long life for the keys and cores thanks to a proprietary manufacturing process that drills the pin holes into the lock’s individual components during the pre-assembly phase, rather than after the core has been assembled. This innovative process increases the tolerance of the core to deliver excellent resistance to cylinder manipulation. In fact, lock pick ratio of attempts to success is 50 percent lower, based on this new design. The 7-pin core is also noticeably easier to operate, requiring 60 percent less force for insertion and rotation. The core’s accurate design also helps to reduce the amount of time spent with core maintenance by minimizing key breakage and extending the life of the cylinder.

Key control.All R family keys are protected against unauthorized manufacture and distribution by U.S. utility patents 7,665,337 until 2029.
Keyway assignment.The Schlage Master Key Department assigns one of the available keyways at random for each job. Each job is assigned a facility code which is stamped on all key blanks and cut keys. End users are not permitted to cut keys with any facility code other than their own. There is no guarantee of geographic exclusivity. End users who require this are encourage to upgrade to full size Primus XP cylinders.
Establishing a new key system.A letter of authorization on the end user’s official stationery is required with the initial order to establish the authorized ship-to location.
Ordering keys or cores for existing systems.Restricted keyway locks, cores and blanks on each subsequent order will be drop shipped to the location originally specified by the end user. Any order that must be shipped to a different destination or change of supplier requires a letter of authorization on the end user’s official stationery.
Key machines.R family keys can be cut on a special version of the Blue Punch available through Schlage as 40-071. It is not possible to retrofit any existing Best or Blue Punches to cut B family keys. You can also use a rotary cutter key machine to duplicate these keys or cut them by code. The stop is at the shoulder of the key, even though the bittings are read and written tip to bow. This merely requires using new spacing specifications on existing rotary cutter code machines.
Pin kits.All Schlage small format cores are compatible with most brands of A2 system kits. However, Schlage does not recommend using Arrow™ or Kaba Peaks bottom pins in Everest cores. If you do not already have an A2 pin kit, you can purchase Schlage SFIC pin kit 40-129.
Other service equipment.If you already service Best style cores, no new service equipment is usually required for Everest other than the key machine. If you have no SFIC service equipment now, Schlage’s 40-129 pin kit contains all the standard tools, such as the capping block, key gauge, etc. Schlage small format cores are compatible with virtually all brands of capping blocks, capping presses, capping pins, ejector pins, A2 key gauges and other specialized service equipment designed for Best style cores. The only exceptions are items designed specifically for Kaba Peaks 140 spacing and for Falcon cores using a single spring cover.
Keying options.Cores must be ordered master keyed or uncombinated. There is no such thing as 0-bitted small format cores.
Sales sample cores.Sales sample cores have the R125 keyway. No key blanks or uncombinated cores are available for samples since this is a restricted keyway. Each sample core comes with one operating key and one control key. Please specify sales samples when ordering. R family dealer restricted.
