Has someone mentioned to you that your locks need to be replaced or keyed?  Perhaps you’ve noticed that the key isn’t working as well as it used to?  Whatever the reason may be, it’s important to know the benefits of lock rekeying so you can decide whether or not you need to call out a local locksmith.

If you’re not too familiar with lock rekeying, you can see our blog HERE – What is Lock Rekeying – From a Heidelberg Locksmith.

Reasons for lock rekeying

People choose to have their locks rekeyed for many different reasons.  The most common is when someone moves into a new home.  Quite often you’ll be told to have your locks replaced when you move into a new home.  This is always a good idea as you can never be certain who else has a key. The idea of replacing your locks is so anyone with the previous key can’t enter your home. So why not just have them rekeyed? Rekeying your locks will have the same effect; all previous keys will be rendered useless.  It’s much more affordable also!

Another reason people choose to have their locks rekeyed is because it’s far much cheaper than having them replaced. As we mentioned above, the effect is the same, however the price is significantly lower.  When you replace a lock there will be costs depending on the age, state and type of lock. When you have your locks rekeyed it is generally just one fixed price.

One last reason …

Convenience.  There are many people that have various keys with all different types of levels of access for their home.  They’ll have keys to the garage, windows, front door and sliding doors.  By having your locks rekeyed, you can get them rekeyed to the one single key.  This means you could have a complete level of access with just the one key!
