Remove original core from cabinet
1) The lock currently in the cabinet must be in the unlocked position.
2) Insert the Core Removal Key (A.K.A. Control Key) into the lock. Be sure it snaps completely into the lock core which drops the retainer wafer (the last wafer in the lock core).
3) Place a slight twisting force on the Core Removal Key and slowly pull the key and old core out of the lock barrel.
