Pronto Locksmiths highly recommends having a re-key completed instead of having your locks changed as a way to save money, while still achieving the same outcome that you would like. However, re-keying may only be a suitable alternative in some circumstances and customers should be aware of these to ensure they are always getting the best value for their locksmith services. To understand when you should have your locks re-keyed you first have to understand exactly what a re-key is. When our locksmith completes a re-key he is adjusting the pins inside of the lock so that an new key can function inside of the lock. This allows for a new key to operate in the lock and makes other version of the key ineffective.
1. Moving into a new home or apartment
It is highly recommended to have your locks re-keyed right after moving into a new home. The reason for this is that you can never fully trust who the previous owner gave keys to. By having your locks re-keyed rather than completely changed, you can keep any unwanted visitors from entering your home, without having to spend for brand new locks.
2. After employee turnover at your business
After an employee has left your business and previously had access to sensitive areas, it may be wise to have a re-key completed. By having this lock re-keyed you can ensure that they are unable to enter back into your business even if they made copies of your old key. Re-keying gives you that extra peace of mind that your business is safe.
3. When having a master key system installed
Master key systems are a great way to keep convenient access to your home or business. By re-keying all of your locks (even across multiple locations) our locksmith can provide you with one master key that opens every single lock in the system. The locks can also be set to easily delegate individual access to just one part of the system. The combinations and customization options for your re-keying service are nearly endless.
