No one ever said that replacing a lock for your home, car, or business would be easy or cheap. Fortunately, there could be a better solution. In most cases, We can repair a lock and save you the time and expense of having to buy a new one.
Should I attempt to rekey my own lock first?
You would likely end up spending even more money attempting your own repair than you would hiring a professional locksmith company from the start. Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework. Although the job of rekeying a lock might look easy, keep in mind that the people doing it are professionals who have specific training as well as the experience of having rekeyed hundreds or thousands of other keys in the past.
Rekeying your lock offers many benefits, including saving money over having to replace it entirely. You get an improved lock that looks better and helps you to feel more secure again. If you're considering having a lock rekeyed rather than replaced, please contact us to request our services right away.
What is the average turnaround time for lock rekeying?
Although this job often takes only a few minutes, it's not always possible to state upfront how long it will take to rekey your particular lock. It depends on several factors, including the brand, age, and general condition of your lock. One thing that could add to your total wait time is if we would need to get the lock you want rekeyed out of a door. It will take longer to do this with some types of locks than it will with others.
When we arrive at your home or meet you at your vehicle, our locksmiths will survey the situation and provide you with a more accurate estimate. We respect your time and will never keep you waiting any longer than necessary.
Is it possible for me to rekey my own lock?
It probably seems like this wouldn't be a hard job to do. However, it only looks that way because the people rekeying your lock have done it countless times before and have extensive training as well. When you try to rekey your own lock, you could end up causing much more damage rather than resolve the problem. It requires in-depth knowledge of lock mechanisms as well as the need to complete steps in an exact order.
You obviously want to avoid this type of situation. At the first sign of a broken or worn lock, call us to request immediate service. We will arrive promptly and save you from having to remove and disassemble your own lock. Another reason to avoid a do-it-yourself rekey job is that you could put yourself and your family at an increased security risk.
Should I plan to rekey my locks when I move into a new home?
Yes, we always think this is a good idea and it's not just because we want to sell more rekeying services. We sincerely care about our customers and our community and would hate to see anyone become an unwitting crime victim. When someone moves out of a house, you don't know if they still have a valid set of keys or whether they gave a copy of their keys to someone with less than desirable intentions. Although the possibility is small, it's not a chance worth taking when our company is available to rekey the locks of your new home 24 hours a day.
Another thing to consider is that construction workers and others who had access to your home during the building or remodeling phase may have a master key to your home. A master key means that several different types of keys can open a single lock. Another thing to know about a master key is that it also contains numerous master pins. Because of this, the number of unauthorized people who could access your home increases.

The process of rekeying a lock
As we mentioned, it's necessary to follow steps in a certain order to ensure that a lock will work correctly after rekeying. These steps include:
Gain access to the lock's knob hole using a wiry instrument and then exerting firm pressure to free the knob; Locate the cylinder, pull on its upper ring, and set the ring aside for a few minutes; Pull on the plug of the lock cylinder and then hold it together using a plug follower until the entire plug is dislodged; Locate a color code that corresponds to each lock pin and use that information while putting the lock back together; Check to make sure that no springs or pins have broken free from the cylinder plug.
