Lock Rekeying Vs Changing The Locks

Lock rekeying involves changing the pins inside the lock. Your new set of keys will fit lock, and any old keys will no longer work. This makes lock rekeying a faster and more affordable solution than changing the lock (in changing locks we are replacing the entire lock).

Columbus Metro Locksmith experts will assess whether your lock can be rekeyed, and will always offer the most cost effective solution for your situation.

Replace or Rekey?

It all depends on the condition of your existing locks.  If your existing locks are defective, damaged, worn out, or hard to operate, we would recommend to have your locks replaced.  Eventually, old locks will fail and you may end up locked out of your house.  Lockouts almost always occur during the worst possible timing, not to mention that there will be a lockout charge.

What’s Involved With Our Lock Rekey Service

To rekey a lock, our licensed locksmith needs access to the lock cylinder, which means removing the lock from the door it’s installed on. Once the lock is removed the locksmith works to change lock pins in order to prevent the existing keys from working on the lock. The pins are then set using a depth chart and key decoder, which takes the guesswork out of the process. Once the lock is changed, new keys are cut to match the updated pin depth.

Our expert Columbus locksmiths will make sure the job is done correctly the first time. We won’t leave your location until you’re fully satisfied with the job we have done. If you need locks rekeyed, call The Professional Locksmith and let one of our experts provide you with better security.

Less Expensive than Replacing Locks

If you’re looking for a more cost-efficient way to deny access to your home, rekeying may be the answer. Lock replacement is often more expensive and only necessary if you’re upgrading the lock or it’s in need of replacement. When you’re happy with the door lock you currently have, rekeying provides an easy way to keep others out and control who has a key to your home.
