What Does Rekeying Consist Of?

The process of rekeying a lock sounds a little complicated, but in fact, is rather simple. It essentially means changing the lock so it can operate by means of a different key. By performing a rekey service, it means that any keys previously used to access the lock will not work.

Rekeying a lock means to alter the internal parts of it. These parts or ‘pins’ and ‘tumblers’ as they’re often referred to, are reconfigured, which essentially means that a new key is needed to access the lock. 

This is a popular service because it ups the security of your home or office, without the need for actually replacing the lock entirely. It is a much less complicated job but with essentially the same outcome.  

What About The Old Key?

The key you previously used for the lock will be needed to access the lock in order for us to rekey it. Without this, we would have to pick the lock to open it. 

What’s The Difference Between A Rekey And A Lock Change? 

As mentioned above, the main difference is that a rekey requires new keys, just like a lock change does, but without the extra hassle of having to have your locks changed entirely. Lock changes are more expensive and more time consuming, which is precisely why our rekeying service is so popular. Same results, less time! 

Master Rekey

A master rekey is essentially the same process mentioned above, but with a difference. A master rekey means matching several locks to the same key. Essentially, gaining you access to numerous locks with one key. 

For example, if you have numerous locks requiring different keys at your home or office, our master rekey service can make it so that all of these locks are operated by the same key. Wouldn’t it be great to just need one key to access all of those locks?
