What is Lock Rekeying?

Lock rekeying is the process of changing the internal mechanism of a lock to work with a new key. This is often done as a security measure to prevent unauthorized access or when keys are lost or stolen. Instead of completely replacing the locks, our experienced mobile locksmiths can reconfigure them to work with a different key. Here’s a brief overview of the process using a door lock as an example:

  1. Remove the lock from the door and remove the cylinder.
  2. Remove the old pins from the cylinder and insert a new key that has been cut specifically for this rekeying job.
  3. Insert new pins into the cylinder that precisely match the cuts on the new key.
  4. Reinsert the cylinder into the lock and reattach the lock to the door.
  5. Test the lock to make sure it’s working perfectly.
  6. Rinse and repeat for any additional door locks the customer wants to be rekeyed.
