What does "Changing the locks" mean?
"Changing the locks" or the commonly used term “rekeying the locks” is a locksmithing procedure of removing the inner mechanical workings of a lock and replacing them so the same lock will function with a new and different cut key.
When the property has been rekeyed, the old keys will no longer work.
Rekeying is a cost effective way to change the keys and ensure the safety and security of your property, without installing all new locks and hardware.
Our company is highly specialized in rekeying residential and commercial locks.
Why should I get the locks rekeyed?
Rekeying your locks stops the current key from working, locking out people who may have a copy.
Always rekey the locks to your house, apartment or business address after:

What else is included in the lock rekeying price?
When we rekey your locks, we remove and refit the locks, service the barrels, housings and cylinders, perform minor door, frame and lock adjustments, lubricate the lock and latches and perform minor repairs to allow your locks to work better. A poorly installed lock and strike or a misaligned door frame will prevent even a new lock from working properly.
Minor adjustments are usually included in the price.
