Frequently Asked Locksmith Questions
A re-key is similar to a lock change in the sense that your lock will no longer function with the key that was used before, but there are some big differences. When our trusted technicians perform lock changes they replace the entire lock hardware that is present on the door with a new lock of your choice. When a re-key is performed the original lock hardware still stays intact, however the tumblers are removed from the lock, and the pins within are rearranged so that the lock no longer accepts the previous key, and is fitted to take the new key. You can give our residential locksmiths a call to find out more about which service would be best for you.
