We can make keys without changing the lock.
Whether you’ve just moved into a new home, have gotten a security scare or aren’t sure who now has the keys to your home, or maybe want to update your security system, lock re-keying is a practical, affordable way to re-secure the locks in your home. It’s fast, easy, and can be done either inside our shop or at your home – and it’ll let you make key without changing the lock.
The process of lock re-keying is simple. Inside every lock, there are 5-6 pins of different heights. Each PIN corresponds to the cuts in your keys, and when the right key is inserted, the reductions cause the pins to line up appropriately and open the door. Also, changing only one pin will cause a key to avoid working, but for added security, we make it a practice to modify every pin. Changing the pin ensures the old key will never work, giving your new key sole access to your home. It is less expensive than updating your locks and are major things on your list after you move into a new home or have a security scare.
Why wish at it, obtain one key to open every door. Just ask your certified locksmith to key every lock “alike” for you – because of this, you can carry only one key that works on everything, and there is an additional cost. We can visit you to re-key your locks, or if more convenient, please bring your locks into our shop, and we’ll re-key them while you hold out.
