Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if it's possible to rekey the lock or if I should replace it instead?
While a worn or broken lock doesn't always require replacement, it's still best to leave the job of rekeying it to professional locksmiths with many years of experience and training. Our locksmithing team can usually complete rekeying of a lock unless an important component inside of it is damaged beyond repair. We also understand that customers sometimes want to rekey a lock simply to improve their security. Our company won't pressure you to choose one service over the other. Instead, we will present your options and help you make the best choice for your situation.
One of the greatest benefits of rekeying your lock instead of replacing it is the money savings. You still get a new and improved lock without having to spend the money for replacement and new installation. Best of all, you feel more secure in your home, car, or office building as well. If you're considering rekeying one or more of your locks, please contact us as soon as possible. For your convenience, we have certified locksmith technicians available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
How long should I expect to wait while you rekey my lock?
Although most jobs take just a few minutes to complete, yours could take longer depending on your individual circumstances. For example, older locks or those that our locksmiths must extract from inside of a door will take longer. Some brands tend to come apart easier than others for rekeying purposes as well.
After we dispatch a locksmith to your location or the surrounding communities, he or she will quickly assess your lock damage and give you a better idea of how long you should expect to wait for the rekeying job. Even if we must complete extra work, we always work efficiently so you can get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.
How likely is it that I can rekey my own lock?
It probably seems like this wouldn't be a hard job to do. However, it only looks that way because the people rekeying your lock have done it countless times before and have extensive training as well. When you try to rekey your own lock, you could end up causing much more damage rather than resolve the problem. It requires in-depth knowledge of lock mechanisms as well as the need to complete steps in an exact order.
It's a much better idea to leave the job of rekeying a home or auto lock to the experts. When trying to rekey your home lock, you need to first take the lock out of the door and then take it apart. All of this must take place before you can even start the rekeying process. Even though you may be handy in other areas and own a large collection of tools, it's best not to take the risk of working on your own lock. This could put you in a vulnerable position in terms of security as well as cost you more money to correct any mistakes that you make.
Is it necessary to rekey locks when I take over ownership of a new home?
While it's not a legal requirement of any kind, we always think this is a good idea. You hardly know the people you bought the house from, much less the reputation of their family, friends, and associates. Unfortunately, any one of these people could still hold a key to your house. Rekeying the lock ensures that neither they or any unauthorized people can get into your house.
Some people have formed a poor impression of locksmiths because they assume that they recommend this service strictly for their own financial benefit. This is simply not true. , we happen to think that you just can't be too careful when it comes to your family's security. It's not uncommon for construction workers and others with access to the home for a period of time to master key the lock. That means potential intruders could use several different locks to gain access.
When someone master keys a lock, it means that the lock has several master pins as well. This increases the possibility of multiple people being able to access your new home due to the number of different keys out there that can open the door. Our locksmith will come to your new home to take the master pins out of the lock. This successfully blocks access to anyone but you and your approved family members.

The process of rekeying a lock
As we mentioned, it's necessary to follow steps in a certain order to ensure that a lock will work correctly after rekeying. These steps include:
Access the knob hole of the lock with a wire instrument and then apply pressure to loosen the knob from inside of the door; Pull out the upper ring of the cylinder and set it down until needed; Remove the lock cylinder's plug and use a plug follower to keep it together until we have removed it; Find the unique color code for each of the lock's pins and then insert the pins according to the color code to reassemble the lock; Ensure that no pins or springs have dislodged from the plug of the cylinder.
We are still not done with the job once we have completed this process. It's also essential to test the new lock and key combination to ensure that they work as expected. We want you to feel safe wherever you happen to be, whether it's at home with your family, driving on the freeway, or leading a board meeting at work.
