Schlage Everest Torque tool
Simple Schlage Everest torque tool.
Everest locks are no harder or easier to manipulate
than standard six pin Schlage locks, but the check pin
must be lifted while applying torque. This can be done by
inserting a thin wire below the vertical ward in the
keyway, or by using the bottom part of an Everest key
(the bow of which can also serve as a torque tool). In the
homemade tool shown here (which was cut down from a
standard Everest blank), a hole has been drilled in
the bow to allow insertion of a stiff wire for
additional leverage and working room.
