What Is Rekeying A Lock
- When you buy a new home, you don’t want to change the old owner’s locks! Rekeying the lock is a great way to make your home safe and secure quickly and economically.
- When your key gets lost or stolen (rekeying is a cheaper and faster option than replacing the whole lock).
- When your home has several locks with different keys, you can rekey your locks, and they all will match the same key (but all the locks must be made by the same manufacturer).
- When you want to keep the lock because of its appearance, because it’s vintage, etc.
- When a roommate or companion moves out.
- When your key has been in the hands of housekeeping or construction teams.
