Re-Key Locks – Local Locksmith
If you lose your key and suspect that it could have been stolen, the only option left is replacing the entire lock, right? Wrong! It’s a common misconception that the only solution to securing a property once effective key control has been lost is lock replacement. The experts at Local Locksmith believe that you can get an equal level of security as that offered by a new lock installation by a simpler, more budget-friendly option – locks re-key!
What does it mean?
When we say we could re-key locks, we mean that we could modify your lock in a way that it works with a completely new set of keys. The procedure involves the removal of inner pins and cylinder and replacement with an entirely new configuration. A key is crafted to fit the newly configured lock. This way, even if you have several copies of your keys in circulation, they’ll no longer work on your locks, even though the locks might look the same from the outside.
Here are a few situations where a re-key locks procedure might work well compared to a full lock change:
