Schlage Everest Plug (Bottom, with Key)

Schlage Everest plug (bottom), with check pin retracted. When an Everest key is inserted in the keyway, the check pin retracts into the plug, permitting the lock to operate. Note that the position and depth of the check pin is the same on all (open keyway) Everest locks, although different key profiles limit key interchange between different systems to some extent.

Image taken with a Nikon D-100 digital camera with a Nikkor 85mm 1:2.8D tilt/shift macro lens (with Kenko extension tube). Lit by electronic flash and various reflectors.
