Do you need to change your locks?
Whether you just moved in to a new apartment, lost one of your house keys or just fired an angry employee, we all need to change our locks every once in a while. Changing locks or rekeying them keeps your house safer and helps you and your family sleep better at night. So when do we recommend changing a lock and what are the difference options for doing so, efficiently and affordably?
Most common house-hold locks' mechanism hold inside 5 pairs of pins, which essentially make up the security of the lock. These pins differ by length and unique to each lock in a way that each key is cut to fit just one combination of pins. This type of locks is not considered to be "High-Security Locks" but still makes it hard for an untrained person to pick or compromise. In time, these pins wear out in a way that compromise the security of the lock, making the lock easier to pick and also, the older a lock is, the harder it is to keep track of the number of keys that had been duplicated over the years. That's why it is highly recommended to change the locks in your house every couple of years and prevent the mechanism from wearing out. But what if you just moved to a new house with fairly new locks but want to make sure you are the only one to have the keys? There's a better solution - Rekey.
Rekeying a lock is the process of changing the pins inside a lock in a way that makes the old key not to work anymore, but still avoiding changing the lock altogether. This is a quicker, more affordable solution, aimed at home owners who wants to keep their locks but changing the working keys, or business owners who had just fired an employee that didn't return his keys for example.
