700 cylinders feature a single shear line. All models have seven pin stacks and use security pins. Cylinders are available in mortise, rim, and Scandinavian profiles and can be fitted in specialized padlock housings. The "SCD" stamp indicates that it is "Security Cylinder Drillproof". Keys for the 700 are nickel silver. The key combination is read from tip to bow. A #1 cut is the deepest and a #9 cut is the shallowest. MACS is 5.[1]

Disassembly instructions

  1. To remove the brass cap from the rear of the cylinder, take a thin flat head screwdriver and lift the brass cover slightly until the C-clip underneath is exposed. Spread the clip until the legs of the metal U-shaped retainer can be manipulated from under the C-clip, thus freeing the brass cap.
  2. Remove the C-clip.
  3. Insert the key and turn the plug 45-90 degrees.
  4. Withdraw the plug from the cylinder. (A plug follower is recommended)
