So, What Does It Mean To Rekey Locks?

When we rekey your locks, we simply move around the internal pins (the parts that make up the lock) into a new formation so that they require a new key. Your old key will become obsolete. However, you can keep your existing locks.

When Should I Rekey My Locks? 

We get many calls from customers – homeowners, business owners, property managers – with many different reasons for wanting to rekey their locks. Some common reasons are:

Moving Into a New Home or Business Space

If you’ve moved your family into a new home or you’ve moved your workforce into a new space, you’ll need to ensure everyone’s safety. A great way to do that is to rekey the locks that are on the door. While it may be an extra step to take during an already stressful process of moving, it’s a worthwhile one. You want to make sure that whoever previously occupied the home or commercial area no longer has a working key (just in case.)

You’ve Lost Track of Keys

If you’ve got a big family, it can be hard to keep track of everyone’s keys. If one member loses a key now and then it’s easy enough to replace, but you can’t ever really be sure what happened to it. In that regard, it may be a good idea to rekey the locks on your home if you’ve lost keys. 

The same goes for your business. If several employees have copies of your keys, it’s a good idea to rekey your locks from time to time. You may not be able to control whose hands keys fall into. And if you’ve let go of employees or had to deal with a disgruntled worker, then you’ll want to rekey your locks. 

Your Keys Have Stopped Working

Your keys are like any other piece of hardware – they don’t last forever. Over time, the teeth of the key can be worn down or can accumulate rust, making it difficult to use or sometimes even totally unable to open the lock. The obvious solution may be to simply replace your key. However, if your key has seen some wear and tear, then your lock almost certainly has too, especially if you’ve been using a faulty key on it. In order to make sure your new keys are usable (and that other keys aren’t) we recommend rekeying your locks.
