If you’ve ever moved into a new office, experienced a burglary, or worried that your key’s fallen into the wrong hands; chances are you’ve considered rethinking your security situation. Many people are unaware that instead of changing their locks, there is a simpler and cheaper option: rekeying your locks. It’s a great option for home and business owners, property managers, and anyone else searching for that peace of mind that their property is secure.


Rekeying a lock is the process of changing the lock so that a different key may operate it. It renders any previously issued keys inoperative.

We do this by changing the internal parts of your locks (known as pins or tumblers.) We change the tumbler configuration by taking the lock apart and replacing some of the tumblers inside. Each series of pins inside your lock correspond to a particular key. So when you change those pins, you will require a new key to operate it. It may sound like a complicated procedure, but with the right tools and a knowledgeable locksmith, a residential lock rekey shouldn’t take too long.


Will I Need My Original Key?
In order to provide residential lock rekey services, our locksmith will have to have your current key. Without the key that matches your current lock, the locksmith will have to pick open the lock. It’s no problem for a skilled locksmith, but will usually incur additional charges that often exceed the price of switching to new locks.


What’s The Advantage Of Residential Lock Rekey?
The advantage of rekeying a lock over replacing a lock is that it doesn’t require the tedious and more costly process of switching to entirely new locks. Simply put: it’s faster, easier, and cheaper!


When Should I Have My Locks Rekeyed?

There are a few different situations where you may consider getting our residential lock rekey services. They include, but certainly aren’t limited to:

When moving into a new home
Generally, after moving into a new space, whether it’s residential or commercial, it’s always recommended to either rekey your locks or change them entirely. That way anyone with the old key doesn’t stand a chance of getting in.


When you’re not sure who has a key
When you’ve lived or worked in a space for a long time, it can be tough to remember who exactly has a copy of the key. Instead of worrying about keys being in the wrong hands, rekeying your locks can give you assurance about exactly who has access to your property.

Rekeying isn’t only used for when you want to retire old keys, but also for matching several locks to one key. This key is known as a master key. If your home has several different locks that require different keys, rekeying them all for a master key is a great idea. This will cut down the number of keys you have to keep track of.
Creating a master key is also a great idea for business owners or property managers who often manage larger areas that contain many locks that require different keys.
