Rekeying is the process of modifying a lock so that a different key can operate it while the old one will not. Rekeying is done by changing the configuration inside the lock. The nice thing about rekeying is that it can be done without replacing the lock itself which makes it a more affordable solution.

If the locks are old and rusty, stiff and hard to use, or maybe lower security grade than you would wish, you should consider upgrading your locks. Mr Locksmith Halifax NS  will remove your old lock and install a brand new one. This might be more expensive than simply rekeying locks but it gives you the chance to have the locks you choose and upgrade by using stronger and safer locks such as high-security deadbolts.

Whichever you choose, rekeying your locks or upgrading to new locks, Mr. Locksmith Halifax is here to help. Mr. Locksmith has been rekeying locks and locksmithing and have over 30 years and four generations of locksmith experience. So we can provide the best service possible.

One of my favorite deadbolts is the Schlage B660 Deadbolt. It is a commercial-grade deadbolt common in hospitals and schools and a great deadbolt for residential. Several options for keyways ranging from the popular Classic SC1 keyway to the new C129 and the High-Security Primus (rated UL 437, pick resistant and drill resistant). Keyway selection is almost unlimited.

Rekeying vs Changing Lock

Most people think that when you lose or misplace your house keys, you need to replace the lock. Missing keys can jeopardize the safety of your home. We see horror stories all the time about people using missing or stolen keys to gain access to people’s homes — endangering the contents inside, as well as the people. Even if you just lone your key to someone else, they could make a copy before they return it to you (this happens a lot!). Because of this, we always recommend that you address the problem of missing house keys before it is too late.

Missing keys jeopardize the security of your home, however; this does not mean that you need to replace the door lock — instead, save yourself a lot of time and money by having your lock rekeyed. Rekeying Locks: Almost all deadbolts, handle sets, and door locks are able to be rekeyed. A typical rekey costs around $100 while replacing the door lock can range between $250-$500.

A rekey is when the internal mechanism of the lock is rearranged or recoded to match a new set of keys. This is basic security work and every locksmith should be able to do this quickly and affordable. A rekey means that the old keys, including the missing or stolen keys, no longer operate the lock, and a new set of keys will. This is the most efficient way to secure your home.

Door locks typically have 5-6 pins inside the cylinder which align with the key to create a sheer line, allowing the cylinder to spin and draw the latch. During the rekey process, those pins are recoded to match a new key. When Mr. Locksmith rekeys your door locks, we give you 5 free keys, and we always guarantee the old keys no longer operate the lock.

We recommend rekeying your locks every time a key is lost, stolen, loaned out, or goes missing. This is the most effective way to ensure that someone doesn’t have access to your home.
