Why Opt For A Lock Rekey Instead Of A Switch?

Before you go about completely changing out your locks, learn about our Lock Rekeying Perth Service and why this may be actually best for your situation.

There are many reasons to rekey locks. Sometimes events occur in life which lead you to changing your locks to prevent unwanted people coming in. From losing keys after a few drinks on a night out, to leaving your keys on top of someone’s car roof, to having your bag stolen and breaking up with partners. Or in some cases, there may be an increase of security concerns in the home like after a break-in. We have seen it all. It is always best to rekey locks if you suspect that someone else has access to your home.

Did you know we can often fix your need for a door lock replacement without changing the whole lock? This lock re keying option ends up saving you time and money as compared to a complete changing of your locks.

What is the Difference Between Rekeying and Changing Locks?

A lock rekey is a service that replaces the locking mechanism on a door or window with a new key. In most cases, the existing key can be used to lock and unlock the door while the rekey is being done. This process can take about an hour, depending on how many locks need to be replaced.

The difference between a lock rekey and changing locks is that additional locks may need to be purchased for your Perth home or office in order to replace all of them at once. Whereas with lock rekeys, only one lock needs to be replaced.

A Lock ReKey Service Requires Trustworthy Locksmith Professionals

Lock rekeying (also known as cryptography) should only be performed by a professional locksmith. And it really only can be performed by a professional. You can attempt the rekey yourself, but you’d need all the professional tools and materials to do it. A lock rekey requires changing the internal pins inside a current lock to match a new key. Once a lock has been re keyed the previous keys will no longer work the lock, giving you peace of mind and security.

90% of locks manufactured today can be rekeyed. This allows you the option to have multiple locks all working on one key.

Cost To Rekey Locks:

A re key lock service can start from $27.50 per cylinder, conditions apply.
