Why lock rekey is essential?
Let us tell you first how your cylinder locks work. Such special locks have a cylinder with springs and pins. Once you put the key in the lock, these springs are squeezed and the pins at the upper side move further up to the shear line and that’s how the door opens and locks. This is how the key fits in the first place. So when the previous owner of your new house still has the home keys, you won’t feel confident until these keys are rendered useless. And that’s what we do by rekeying your locks. The main purpose is key change. So we use a new key and change the pins of the cylinder lock to match the key notches.
What we can also do is create a master key system. By rekeying the lock, we change the configuration of the pins. And we can make them accept two different keys: the master and change keys.
