  • Publication number: 20210301558
    Abstract: A lock module comprises a cylinder including a control latch configured to mechanically rotate between an extended position to prevent removal of the cylinder from a lock assembly, and a retracted position to allow removal of the cylinder from the lock assembly. A rotator is configured to enable the control latch to rotate between a locked position and an unlocked position. An actuation rod is configured to travel between a tab-blocking position maintaining the control latch in the extended position, and a retracted position allowing the control latch to retract into a retracted position. A control pin is configured to restrict the travel of the actuation rod in a control pin-blocking position in response to the rotator being rotated to a locked position and to retract from blocking the travel of the actuation rod to the control pin-unblocking position in response to the rotator being rotated to an unlocked position.
