If you have looked into changing the locks of your home for whatever reason, you may have noticed the term “rekey.” But what does it mean to rekey a lock?
When a lock is rekeyed, the pins and springs inside are replaced, and a new key is used. The existing exterior housing however, remains the same.
So why do this? The main reason most people choose this service is to gain control of who has an operating key to the lock. Once copies are made, you just never know who has one anymore. Your locks might be in perfectly good working order, so why replace the entire piece of equipment, when all you need is a new key?
So if you think you need a rekey, or if you just aren’t sure what to do, give us a call!
