What does it mean to rekey a lock?
To “rekey” a lock means to change the internal workings of a door lock so the old keys no longer open the lock. The lock is reset to work with a different key. The deadbolts, knobs or levers, and hardware are not replaced—only the internal mechanisms that accept the key. Rekeying locks is a cost effective way to change the keys to your home or rental property.
There are many situations where a Rekey is needed.
- Lost, stolen or unreturned keys.
- Want all your home locks to use the same key.
- Purchased new home and want to insure no one else has a key.
- Tenant turnover of a lease or rental property.
- Change of cleaning service or maintenance companies.
- Tenant or roommate moved out.
