Locks Rekeyed – Need to re-key your locks?
Lock rekeying entails changing the lock codes. The process involves taking the lock apart and replacing the locking pins with new ones and new springs, as well. The new keys are then made to match the new pins. This means that the old keys will be obsolete. They will be useless, which is why having locks rekeyed is an effective security measure.
Reasons For Rekeying
There are many reasons to have your locks rekeyed, but they all boil down to key control and security. For instance, a building with three keys to open its doors suddenly lost one key. The building owner has two options – replace the locks that the lost key can open or re-key all these locks. If the hardware of the locks in question is still in good shape, then just having them rekeyed is an ideal option. You can call for a locksmith to do this for you and A-Access Lock & Key can definitely help! In fact, they can even send their locksmith over to your home or business establishment.
Key control is the biggest reason to have your locks rekeyed. If you discovered that some of your keys are unaccounted for, the safest thing to do is to have all the locks rekeyed. This should be the first thing to do in your list of security measures before it is too late.
Without complete control over the access to your residential or commercial building, you will not feel secure. Don’t worry; our technicians are capable of rekeying most quality locks. If you happen to use high security locks, you will still have the locks rekeyed but you will get a new registered code aside from the registered keys.
You know that rekeying is the best option if:
- The keys are lost
- Rekeying is cheaper than getting new locks installed
- The hardware remains in good condition
- The lock is high security
- You need new keys for the existing locks immediately
- You need multiple locks to be activated by the same key

Having the locks rekeyed is also advantageous if you are planning on converting the keying sequence in the building. If you want several locks to open using the same key, rekeying is a good option. Just tell us at A-Access Lock & Key and we will dispatch an experienced technician to wherever you are right away. He will take the locks apart and rekey them to be accessed using the same key.
