Removing Best SFIC Core

Removing SFIC core. The control key (cut on the same blank and otherwise indistinguishable from a regular key) turns about 20 degrees clockwise to disengage a retaining tab that locks the core in the housing. The core pulls out while the housing stays in place in the door (the one shown here is a standard-size screw-in mortise cylinder).

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.
