Changing lock cylinder in Trimark lock

I'm replacing the Trimark 30-900 door lock. Does anyone know if I can change the lower lock cylinder from the old latch to the new one to keep the compartment keys and door key the same?

Have you thought about taking the mechanism to a locksmith to have the new lock "re-keyed" to your existing key ...

I changed my lock a couple of years ago ... and I did not think about this until after I had the new lock installed ...

So now I have two keys ... I painted the head of one blue ... and the other red so I know which is which.

I changed the cylinder on mine from the original which had the casting damaged. Unfortunately, I do not recall the details of how it was done but I did have both the old and new removed from the door when I did it. You might want to give it a try to see if you can do it. I do recall there was something holding the cylinder in the correct orientation that allowed the removal of the cylinder. I assume you are replacing with a Trimark cylinder from the same model of lock. Not sure if this is much help.

I stopped at locksmith yesterday, he said he had the tool that will allow the lock cylinders to be changed.

When I attempted to change the door latch yesterday I found that the 30-900 I bought from PPL is different from the one on my camper. The parts I bought does not have the adjustment nut operating mechanism. Rats, back to square one.

I'm jumping in here where my only experience is with home door locks, so I may be way off here. A locksmith should be able to rebuild the original lock and rekey a new lock to the original key. When I was in maintenance we were always replacing worn lock pins and keying them to the original key. Took about 15-20 minutes. Check with your local locksmith.
