Home High Security and Challenge Locks (825) American 3600 w/Everest Core

(825) American 3600 w/Everest Core



A pretty common American model 3600 with a not-so-common Schlage Everest core.  At first I was a bit worried because the actuator didn’t seem to be working right, turning an extra 1/4 turn before unlocking the shackle.  It worked every time though, so I gave it a whirl.  The Schlage Everest really isn’t a “high security” cylinder, but if you don’t realize the bottom detent button is there and know how to defeat it, it can kick your a$$.  The lock, although called a challenge lock, really contained stock pins so I used this as a chance to show the pin, how it works, and how to best defeat it.

No giveaway this time as the owner wanted it back.  Sorry.




  1. You can find definitely a whole lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a terrific point to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are actually questions like the one you bring up where essentially the most critical factor will be working in honest superior faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around factors like that, but I’m confident that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Each boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  2. Heyo Bill! Neat explanations on everything as usual.

    One quick question, probably one you have gotten a couple of thousand times.
    I live in Europe , and I have been looking for a pick sets to get, the first one I was looking at was a majestic set(13 piece), then a SouthOrd one(PXS14), and now that I saw the Serenity kit I got even more unsure on what to get.

    Would they all work for Euro-locks? or is there one of them(or two) that you would point me towards?
    Thanks before hand and thanks for all the great videos .

    1. I did what I criticize others of doing, not looking around properly and finding the info.
      well now I am more sure on what to get , if you still have some in mind for Euro profile locks I would still appreciate it .
      thanks again.

  3. Hey bill long time member of the tribe,great site my man.,i have a ? for you.why do you think there was so much slop on that american lock(the nuclear physicist).

  4. Hello Bill, I have tried in vain to participate with your giveaways, but due to the new security settings on my computer dictated by my company’s IT department, the YouTube comments section now has the infinite wheel of “Loading…” Would I be able to partake in these by posting a comment on this site instead?? (The sad thing is that I am the IT department [not to mention, head of security, CEO, CFO, CIO, and the rest of the alphabet soup], that is how I got started on watching your videos).

    1. Sorry Carlos, we have not gotten the comments here to sync with YT yet due to an API glitch. You’ll need to register on YT to enter.
