Rekeying means altering a lock so that its keys are no longer compatible with it. Rekeying involves altering the tumbler configuration; more specifically, your locksmith will remove the pins and springs from the lock cylinder and replace them with new pins and springs that are compatible with a new key.
Here are a few situations where rekeying is a good choice, and some advantages offered by the procedure:
There are some locks on the market today that allow consumers to do the rekeying themselves. While this may sound convenient, these locks are not standard pin tumbler locks and may include more complex and sensitive parts that may easily malfunction. These types of locks may actually turn out to be less secure!
Most locks can be rekeyed, so consider rekeying your existing lock. Contact us today to learn more and get started.
