We get many requests from customers such as rekeying or changing a lock. Let’s Learn the difference. When we re-key a lock, we replace the existing pins in the cylinder with new ones that will fit a new key. The old key will no longer work after this. This should be done with any new place you move into or when you have a person who has a key that you no longer want to have access. This could be for a residential or commercial property.
Changing a lock is if your lock was non-repairable, you wanted to change the style and color, or if you wanted to upgrade to a better lock for added security.
