Or did you entrust your key to someone who is no longer trustworthy, maybe your roommate moved out and refused to return their key? The question is, should you be worried? Save yourself the stress, don’t give anyone the option to do something wrong, call a locksmith for a rekey. You don’t always have to change the locks in these situations.
It’s not always necessary to replace the entire lock system. Our professional locksmiths can rekey your locks for a fraction of the cost of installing an entirely new lock system. With the same result, we will keep your original locks on the doors.
Rekeying a lock is the most common job done. The process of rekeying a lock involves changing the interior tumblers inside the lock to a different size which will no longer accept the original key set. We interchange the internals of your lock, keep your original exterior shell of the lock, just changing the mechanism. This is ideal to not only spend less money, but also if you have stylized locks or certain locks you prefer to keep. You will receive a new set of keys from the locksmith and the rekeying process will eliminate any worry that old keys that are floating around for this lock will be used to compromise your safety or security.
You may also want to rekey all the locks in your home to respond to one master key rather than having to fumble with numerous keys on your keychain, each of which is needed to open a different lock. Rekeying is designed to be the simplest and most convenient solution available, if you need one key to work for multiple locks, we can easily rekey multiple locks to work for that one key. Before you decide to replace the entire lock, have a member of our locksmith team check to see if your system can be rekeyed to save you time, money and stress. Rest assured the locks we rekey will reject the old keys 100% of the time and keep your property safe.
