Rekey Door Locks
Rekeying is the process of removing the pins and springs in the lock cylinder to replace them with new ones that require a different key for gaining entry. Many locks can be rekeyed, providing a cheaper alternative than having to completely replace them and giving you control over who has access to your home.
Why Rekey Door Locks?
The most common reason to rekey your door locks is to maintain control and provide peace of mind when there is a change in possession of a property. This also applies to keys that may be lost or stolen as well.
It can sometimes be difficult to account for all keys made for any particular lock, and key control is technically lost the minute a key is loaned out. This can apply to new homes as well as older ones as contractors could have had access to keys as well.
The Master Pin
Locks are often construction master keyed, meaning a homeowner’s key will prevent the future use of the contractor’s key. There are, however, usually master pins left in the lock which doubles the number of keys that can access a lock. Rekeying removes the master pins bringing the number of access keys back under control.
When Should You Rekey?
It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so we recommend you consider rekeying your door locks whenever:
- You change roommates
- You change any domestic helpers like cleaners
- There is a change of contractor for home or building improvements
- You move into a new house
- Your keys are lost or stolen
