When Should I Replace My Locks

Locksmith services are often in high demand for replacing and re-keying homes, businesses and cars. Knowing which method of changing your locks is ideal to your situation could help you keep your family safer while also helping keep some extra money in your pockets. Consider the following information the next time you need to change your locks.

When Is Rekeying Ideal?

When locksmith services include rekeying a lock, they must remove the springs and pins from the lock cylinder and replace them with springs and pins that function using a completely different key. This is ideal for cases where you like the style of an old lock but want to increase your security level and ensure that you are the only one with access.

The most popular reason for people to choose to rekey their locks is to prevent others from gaining access to their properties. One of the clearest and most commonly experienced examples is when property changes ownership. Real estate is sold using lockboxes that contain a key to the property. Anyone with access to these lockboxes can make a copy of the key and keep it for their own unauthorized use. Contractors may also have their own copies of your keys during home renovation projects. Rekeying the locks gives you back key control and prevents others from using your property without permission.

Choosing to Replace Locks

Although rekeying locks is often less expensive, there are situations where you should call on locksmith services to replace your locks instead. Old, malfunctioning locks will not be able to be rekeyed. If you do not like the aesthetics of your old locks, or want to change the feel and style of a door and room, replacing the locks with a style that matches your design will help bring the room together. Additionally, some locks may need to be replaced to allow access for those with disabilities.

Whether you choose to rekey or to replace your locks, it is vital that you do not put off changing your locks when it is time. This will keep you and your family from losing your property or being placed in harm’s way.

What our clients say.

Remi did a really good job getting me into my apartment through a tricky deadbolt. He spend over 30 minutes working on it since we knew we couldn't drill out the lock. I am very appreciative of his service - he saved me from sleeping in the car all night!

They came right out at 8 PM on a Friday night! Unbelievable! I was so happy to have such quick and friendly service. I highly recommend calling Job Done Locksmith!

Was on time, curteous and even replaced our door knob so we could have a fresh set of keys. Will definitely call again anytime we get locked out.
