What Is Lock Rekeying?

What Is Lock Rekeying?

Lock rekeying alters the internal pins of the lock so that you can use it with a new key.
The external hardware of the lock remains the same.
It involves replacing the spring and pins within the lock cylinder, making using old keys useless to ensure the new key will unlock the door.
It is a popular choice if you want to enhance your security without replacing the locks, making it affordable.

Most standard lock types, including deadbolts, knob locks, and lever handle locks, can be rekeyed.
This versatility makes it a widely applicable solution for various security needs.

Benefits of Rekeying

Rekeying locks has many benefits, as follows:

  • Cost-effective Security—Rekeying is more affordable than replacing an entire lock, as you only change the internal hardware of the existing lock.
  • Enhance Security—Rekeying the locks ensures that the old keys no longer work with the lock and adds a layer of protection, especially if you lost your keys or moved into a new home.
  • Convenience—If you have multiple keys, rekeying simplifies your life.
    Our locksmiths can rekey your locks to work with a single key, reducing the need for multiple keys. 

When Should You Consider Rekeying?

Many situations can arise when it comes to rekeying, as follows:

  • Lost or Stolen Keys—If you lose your keys or they have been stolen, it helps to rekey the locks to prevent the lost keys from being used to gain access to your property.
  • Moving Into a New Home—When you move into a new house, you do not know how many key copies are there. You can get a fresh start by rekeying so that only trusted people have access to the residence.
  • After a Break-In—If a break-in occurs, rekeying the locks can help restore security. It is a swift procedure that ensures no intruders get access using copied keys.
  • Security Upgrade—As security technology advances, the methods of bypassing locks change. Rekeying locks helps to upgrade your property’s security, making it resistant to tampering.
  • Changing Roommates or Tenants—When roommates or tenants move, it helps to rekey locks to prevent them from accessing your place.
