Residential Locksmith Services
Re-keying is the process of changing the pins in a lock’s cylinder to work on a different key.The term re-keying generally implies this process along with creating new keys (with as many duplicates as necessary) and assuring that the old keys will no longer work the lock.

In most cases of break-ins that do not involve forced entry, keys have been duplicated, lost or stolen without the owner’s knowledge. In these situations it is strongly recommended that you have your locks re-keyed. Once someone has access to your keys they can easily have them copied. Even if you recover the key following a case of burglary, there is still the chance that your security has been compromised.
Re-keying can also be done as a preemptive measure if you suspect that someone has gained access to your keys. If you believe this person to have malicious intent, changing your locks is often well worth the cost if it avoids a potential break-in.
There are other times when re-keying is necessary such as when you buy new locks and need them to work on the same key, need to have locks changed to work on different keys, or need to have some keys work on all your locks, and some on just a few.
