Frequently Asked Questions
Can I save money by rekeying a lock on my own?
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.
The good news is that we can usually rekey a lock unless it has severe internal damage. Sometimes customers want a lock rekeyed for security or personal preferences. We can do that as well. We are happy to replace your lock also, but we like to save our customers money whenever possible. The ability to save considerable money on lock replacement is one of the major benefits of choosing rekeying. You still end up with an upgraded lock. Whether you replace your lock or rekey it, the end result is that you have greater security at home, work, and when driving your car. We invite you to contact our company 24 hours a day, seven days a week to request lock rekeying.
What is the time estimate to have my lock rekeyed?
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.
As soon as one of our certified locksmith technicians arrives to your home or business or meets you at your vehicle, he or she will evaluate the situation with your lock and give you a more accurate estimate of how long you will likely need to wait. You can feel rest assured that we value your time and will work as efficiently as possible no matter what the situation.
Is it possible for me to rekey my own lock?
No, we don't recommend this. Rekeying a look requires someone to have in-depth knowledge about how its inside mechanisms work as well as which pins to alter. You must complete steps in a precise order or your work will be in vain. We have seen people waste a lot of money and time attempting their own rekeying job that could have been avoided by working with a professional locksmith.
Rather than make a mistake that could cost you more time and money, please contact our company instead. You might not realize the many steps involved, including removing the lock from the door and disassembling it first. In addition to costing you more, an error in lock rekeying could also compromise your security.
Is it necessary to rekey locks when I take over ownership of a new home?
While it's not a legal requirement of any kind, we always think this is a good idea. You hardly know the people you bought the house from, much less the reputation of their family, friends, and associates. Unfortunately, any one of these people could still hold a key to your house. Rekeying the lock ensures that neither they or any unauthorized people can get into your house.
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.
One of our skilled and experience locksmiths will quickly resolve this problem for you by rekeying your home locks.

Unfortunately, the work environment can be hostile for a lot of people. Even when you're the boss, you can't always control the conflicts that other people in the company have with each other.

The process of rekeying a lock
This is the general guidelines we follow when it comes to a rekeying service call:
Access the knob hole of the lock with a wire instrument and then apply pressure to loosen the knob from inside of the door; Pull out the upper ring of the cylinder and set it down until needed; Remove the lock cylinder's plug and use a plug follower to keep it together until we have removed it; Find the unique color code for each of the lock's pins and then insert the pins according to the color code to reassemble the lock; Ensure that no pins or springs have dislodged from the plug of the cylinder.
After completing these steps, we look again to make sure that all colored pins match their assigned code. Lastly, we place a key in the lock and attempt to open it and close it several times to check for proper functioning. It's our desire that all homeowners in your area feel safe and secure in their own home. We encourage you to consider rekeying your locks if you desire a security upgrade or feel concerned that your lock could break at some point in the near future. Just give our company a call to request service at your convenience.
