Changing locks or Re-keying locks

There are a lot of different terms that describe the same. A lot of people refer to it as rekeying. I’ve heard it described as we tumbling. I just call it a lock change.

Essentially when we re-key a lock what we’re actually doing is replacing the pins inside of the lock. We do this with different sizes of pins. Therefore the old key will no longer work and a new key will. The benefit to this is it’s cheaper than replacing every lock in your house or business. As far as security goes it’s just like a brand new lock and any key previously cut to the lock will no longer work.

A bulk of our business is changing or re-keying home and business locks. When a business loses an employee. If someone goes to a divorce. When there’s any kind of domestic issue they call us to rekey or change the locks on the property. If your goal is to keep out someone that previously had a key to a business or residence re-keying your locks is your most affordable option. It also renews the functionality of your lock hardware because all of the internal workings for the most part have been replaced.
