Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework.

What is the time estimate to have my lock rekeyed?
Although this job often takes only a few minutes, it's not always possible to state upfront how long it will take to rekey your particular lock. It depends on several factors, including the brand, age, and general condition of your lock. One thing that could add to your total wait time is if we would need to get the lock you want rekeyed out of a door. It will take longer to do this with some types of locks than it will with others.
After we dispatch a locksmith to your location or the surrounding communities, he or she will quickly assess your lock damage and give you a better idea of how long you should expect to wait for the rekeying job. Even if we must complete extra work, we always work efficiently so you can get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.
Should I consider rekeying my own lock?
It probably seems like this wouldn't be a hard job to do. However, it only looks that way because the people rekeying your lock have done it countless times before and have extensive training as well. When you try to rekey your own lock, you could end up causing much more damage rather than resolve the problem. It requires in-depth knowledge of lock mechanisms as well as the need to complete steps in an exact order.
It's a much better idea to leave the job of rekeying a home or auto lock to the experts. When trying to rekey your home lock, you need to first take the lock out of the door and then take it apart. All of this must take place before you can even start the rekeying process. Even though you may be handy in other areas and own a large collection of tools, it's best not to take the risk of working on your own lock. This could put you in a vulnerable position in terms of security as well as cost you more money to correct any mistakes that you make.
Should I consider rekeying the locks when I move into a new home?
This is a common question that our customers ask us. We always think it's a good idea just to be on the safe side. You don't know what kind of people the previous owners associated with and whether they have access to a set of keys. We say this out of concern for your safety and not in an attempt to sell an unnecessary service. Precaution is always much better than regret.
Some people have formed a poor impression of locksmiths because they assume that they recommend this service strictly for their own financial benefit. This is simply not true. , we happen to think that you just can't be too careful when it comes to your family's security.

The lock rekeying process
This is the general guidelines we follow when it comes to a rekeying service call:
Place a wire instrument into the lock's knob hole to keep it pushed down and then pull on it to remove the knob from the door; Remove the cylinder's upper ring and set it aside; Take the plug out of the lock cylinder and hold it together with the plug follower until it's out completely and ensure that the cylinder doesn't dislodge the pins and springs; Look for the color code of each pin and insert them by code to put the lock back together.
After completing these steps, we look again to make sure that all colored pins match their assigned code. Lastly, we place a key in the lock and attempt to open it and close it several times to check for proper functioning.
