How Lock Rekey Services Benefit Residents, Businesses, and Drivers
A driver, homeowner, or business owner could find themselves needing to rekey their locks for a variety of reasons. A new home or business owner may want to rekey the locks to ensure appropriate access. Drivers often choose to rekey car door and ignition locks when the keys to the vehicle become lost or stolen. Businesses with company vehicles may do the same. Business owners may also wish to rekey their locks for greater security when the number of available access keys becomes too many or unknown. Break-ins and burglaries also make lock rekeying a desirable option.
As opposed to a complete lock change, when our locksmith rekeys a lock, they alter the mechanism within the lock so it will only accept a new key. The locksmith removes the doorknob and changes the tumblers within the lock cylinder. The tumblers are responsible for allowing a designated key to open a specific door. When the locksmith exchanges the tumblers with those of different sizes, the old key no longer works. The lock has been reconfigured to accept a new key. Our lock rekey services give customers a lower cost alternative to a complete lock change. When our mobile locksmiths arrive, they thoroughly review the lock to see if rekeying is an option. In certain cases, a lock may not be able to be rekeyed.
Changing the locks of a home or business may not always be the most desirable course of action for reasons other than cost. Some customers wish to keep the original or current locks for aesthetic reasons or in order to preserve vintage or custom made locks. The current lock may also be a very secure lock. For convenience, some homeowners choose to rekey multiple locks to open with one key. Property owners also rekey locks to accept the tenant’s’ key as well as a master key. In addition, residential property owners must rekey locks between tenants in some states by law. Rekeying allows home and business owners to customize their lock configurations to suit their personal and business needs.
