Same Locks, New Key

When we re-key, the door hardware remains the same, we simply “change the key.” Rekeying means changing the pin combination within the lock so that old keys will no longer operate it.

Residential Lock Rekeying FAQs

Can a locksmith rekey existing locks?

As long as the lock is functioning properly, there shouldn’t be a problem rekeying it.

How can I have my locks rekeyed so that I only have one key?

In order to rekey the locks so they work on one key, the locks have to be compatible.

To check the compatibility of your locks, try inserting the key that opens one of the doors into the keyholes of all the other locks. If the key can be inserted easily (even if it doesn’t turn within the lock), the locks are compatible. If the key does not fit, the hardware will need to be replaced in order to rekey the lock(s) to one key.

Why Rekey Your Locks?

There are many benefits to rekeying, as opposed to changing out hardware, such as:

  • Cost-Efficiency: Rekeying is generally more cost-effective than completely replacing the lock. You don't need to purchase new hardware, which can be more expensive and time-consuming.
  • Convenience: Rekeying is a relatively quick process that can usually be completed by a professional locksmith in a short amount of time. It's a convenient solution when you need to change your locks promptly, such as after moving into a new home or following a security breach.
  • Key Control: Rekeying allows you to maintain control over who has access to your property. You can be sure that only those with the new keys can enter, reducing the risk of unauthorized access.
  • Customization: Rekeying enables you to standardize all your locks to work with the same key as long as all of the locks are key compatible. This can simplify your life, as you won't need to carry multiple keys for different doors or locks within your home.
  • Preservation of Existing Hardware: If you have high-quality locks or hardware that you'd like to keep, rekeying allows you to retain the existing hardware while still improving security.
