How much does it cost to rekey a lock?
It’s unlikely that anyone has ever lost their keys and said “YES! I can finally rekey that lock!”
It’s an annoyance that often requires rearranging at least part of your day and relatively quick planning. Many people immediately decide to replace the lock based on convenience the(incorrect)assumption that rekeying is more expensive.
What is rekeying a lock and what does it entail?
Rekeying a lock involves modifying the inner workings of a lock so that it responds to a different key. Rekeying is precise, detailed work and requires knowledge of pin sizes and key depths.
Why hire a locksmith to rekey?
- Rekeying is precise, detailed work and requires knowledge of pin sizes and key depths.
- If rekeying is done incorrectly, several things may happen:
- Neither the old nor new keys will work, leaving you with no usable lock at all;
- Both the old and new keys will work; or
- The mechanism may be damaged beyond repair, requiring a new lock.
- Locksmiths are trained to evaluate each lock to determine if rekeying will meet a customer’s needs, or if the lock is in poor enough condition to require replacement.
