Locks are your first line of defense against thieves and vandals.

How does lock rekeying work?
You can contact our expert locksmiths for a free security consultation to determine if you’re eligible for lock rekeying. If you have rented a new property recently or if you’re a landowner and want to rent out your property to someone new, it’s a good idea to re-key locks. You may also want to re-key locks if your locks are very old, or if the locking mechanism is getting jammed when you turn the key in the lock. Locksmith Key Shop’s locksmiths will check to see if broken locks can be repaired before advising you to get them replaced or rekeyed.
The rekeying process itself is pretty simple – we will simply replace the inner mechanism on your pin and tumbler lock with a new one, and give you new keys that go with this mechanism. The old keys that opened the lock before will now be defunct. That way, any old tenants will no longer be able to get inside you property.
Benefits of rekeying locks:
- It’s cheaper than replacing the lock
- Old keys will no longer work with the lock
- Get better control over who enters your property
- A cost-effective way to upgrade your security
- It is possible to create a master key system through rekeying
- Removing a master key system is also possible
