Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Rekeying Locksmith Services
Re-keying your locks helps you save money while keeping your home safe.
If you have ever moved into a new home or had a roommate move out, you may have wondered if anyone else still had a key or if you should be rekeying locks to keep your home secure. Even if everyone has told you there are no other keys, it’s always possible that someone somewhere has a duplicate.
You may also want to rekey so you can get all of your door locks to work with the same key and not have to carry around several keys for your home or business. For these reasons and more, it’s a great idea to call our dispatch referral service and a contracted locksmith who specializes in rekeying locks will be dispatched out to your location. We have been serving the Meridian, Eagle, Star, Caldwell, Nampa & Kuna areas for over several years.
What exactly is lock rekeying?
When you are in a situation in which you wish to change the locks on your door, there is no reason to go to all the trouble and expense of totally replacing the lock. With the process of rekeying locks, an independent contracted locksmith can merely rekey them instead and save you both time and money. Rekeying locks is a method of altering the tumblers and pins that makeup the workings of the lock cylinder with new ones that are different in size from the old ones. The lock then requires a brand new key that works with the new arrangement. Our independent contracted locksmiths have trained themselves in this procedure and will ensure that the new lock works smoothly and you can just throw the old keys away.
Why is rekeying your locks a good idea?
There are more reasons than just a recent move or to match up all of your doors to one key to have a locksmith referred to do the job of rekeying locks. For instance, if you are a landlord, did you know that it is a law in some states to do this for the safety of the new tenants? It will also have to be done if the keys are lost or stolen, or if there has been a break-in. Plus, it is not a bad idea to do it every few years just to be on the safe side in case someone else has lost, duplicated or otherwise compromised a lock on any door in your home.
