Have you ever lost your house keys and been worried that a stranger could get in?
Unless you’re the first occupant of the property, you never can be sure how many copies of your keys exist. Locksmiths typically charge a fee to re-key an individual lock, even when you bring it to their shop.
Since most homes have multiple doors with multiple locks, rekeying can get expensive.
You can re-key a lock like a pro and at a fraction of the cost.
Re-keying kits are available for most lock brands, but they’re not interchangeable.
You have to buy a kit for each brand of lock used in your home. (If you’re lucky, they’ll all be the same brand!) They’re available in home centers and hardware stores and through online suppliers.
In rekeying a lock, the locksmith removes the pins and springs in the lock cylinder and replaces them with new pins and springs that work with a new and different key.
Unless a lock is malfunctioning or a totally different style is desired, many locks can be rekeyed in Folsom and kept in service, operating as well or better than ever.The most common reason to rekey the locks Folsom is to maintain key control when there is a change in possession of a property.
Key control simply means accounting for all keys made to operate the locks.
Once keys are loaned out, key control is lost. Obviously, with a previously owned home, you don’t know who may have had access to the keys. In new homes, contractors have had access to the keys.
In many single-builder communities, locks are construction master keyed. While the use of the homeowner’s key may prevent the future use of the contractor’s key, there are often master pins left in the lock.
Each master pin doubles the number of keys that will operate the lock.
In many instances, as many as 16 different keys would operate a single home’s locks. Rekeying would remove these master pins and eliminate the possibility of another key operating the locks.
