What exactly is rekeying a lock? Rekeying locks means changing inner pins of the lock, providing access for a different key to make the lock open. There are several reasons for a lock to be re-keyed, but to do this done as well, it will require the services of a professional locksmith.
The causes for needing to rekey your locks can range from misplacing your keys to your keys being stolen. Rekeying a lock is also a great substitute if you wish to keep the current locks already installed on your door. Another reason is, if you move into a new house or apartment, as you would also need to re-key or replace your locks because you do not know how many people still have the keys. For a lock to be re-keyed it must have at least a National Standards Institute Grade 1 designation, or you may have to replace the entire lock. It can be costly to replace a whole lock, so re-keying allows the old key to be replaced without replacing the entire lock.
