What Is Lock Rekeying?

Here’s a door lock cylinder we rekeyed. The colorful dots are metal pins that come in different heights that correspond with the cuts on your door key.

​Lock rekeying is a method for changing locks that can save you money on new hardware. We can update the internal cylinder of your lock so that the old key doesn’t work anymore, and grind you a set of keys for the new configuration. By replacing the pins in the lock cylinder with new ones we can effectively set you up with new locks without replacing the entire lock hardware, cutting the cost of a total lock replacement. Rekeying the cylinder in the locks on house doors, commercial structures, and other common security systems to work with new keys is an efficient way to update your security. Our professional locksmiths work with all kinds of security systems, and we can have your deadbolt, door lock or other system rekeyed and ready for service right away.
