What Is Lock Rekeying?
Customers sometimes wonder: what does it mean to have your locks rekeyed? Well, that’s actually pretty easy to explain. Think of your locks like a puzzle, with pieces that all have to line up together. These pieces are called pins (or tumblers) and they all line up together when you stick your key in the lock in order to unlock the door. When we rekey your lock, we simply move these pieces around so that they align differently and require a new key in order to “solve” the puzzle (your lock.) There’s no need to change your locks, we just change them around a bit. You can keep your locks but you will need a new key!
If you’re confused by any part of the rekeying process, we will talk you through it as we work, answering all of your questions and addressing your concerns.
A Small Service With a Big Effect
Rekeying your locks may be quick, simple, and cheap but there’s one other thing it is – effective! It’s a small change that makes for a pretty great security upgrade. Think about it – if you’ve moved into a new home or commercial space, you can’t be sure who might have a copy of the key to your home or building. If you want to make sure they can’t use their keys, but don’t want to change your locks entirely, rekeying them is a great option. You get to keep your existing locks, but all old keys will become obsolete (and those who might have them become locked out!)
