will Medeco cylinders fit into AL series locks

RELATED FAQS

Question
Answer
The T lock can accept a Schlage Full Size core, but the cylinder suffix must be specified as "J IC-SC" so the correct parts are supplied (including the tailpiece) Example: T581J IC-SC
The RU lock can accept a Schlage Full Size core, but the cylinder suffix must be specified as "J IC-SC" so the correct parts are supplied. The tailpiece will come with the lock. Example: RU581J IC-SC
The AL lock can not be ordered to accept any competitor full size core.  The ND lock should be used in these applications.
Specify the J cylinder suffix followed by IC-CR6 or IC-CR7 (6 or 7 pin Corbin core) Example: T581J IC-CR6  This will accommodate an 8000 or 8000-7 Corbin Russwin Full Size core.
