REKEYING YOUR HOME: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Whether you’ve just moved into a new home, have been the victim of a burglary, or are simply looking to improve your home’s security, rekeying your home can be one of the simplest things you can do for improved safety. The Flying Locksmiths offer a wide variety of residential locksmith services that will help make your home safer and more secure. Lock rekeying can provide a host of different benefits for you – both when it comes to the security of your home and also when it comes to your own convenience. If you’re considering having your locksmith rekey the locks of your home, here are a few things that you should know.

ONE UNIVERSAL KEY FOR ALL YOUR DOORS
If you’re tired of carrying around so many extra keys, lock rekeying provides a terrific way to decrease the clutter in your pocket. With our lock rekeying service, we can change the different locks on your doors so that only one universal key is needed to open any and all of them. This will give you total key control and eliminate the need for having to find and bring the proper key.

MORE AFFORDABLE THAN REPLACING YOUR LOCKS

While removing and replacing your locks is an effective method, the problem is that it’s much more expensive. When you replace your lock, you’ll also have to pay for new handles and deadbolts. Additionally, you may even have to modify the door in order to get it to accept the new locks. Lock rekeying follows a much easier and more inexpensive method. Our expert locksmith technicians will simply remove the lock from the door and take out the pins. Those old pins will then be replaced with new pins in a different configuration and placed back on the door. This will essentially invalidate the old key and make it so that only the new key can open the door. It’s a quicker – and cheaper – method that achieves the same goal.

YOU CAN KEEP YOUR EXISTING HARDWARE
As mentioned previously, when you replace your locks, you’ll have to get rid of your door hardware, handles, and deadbolts. While this can be costly, sometimes the biggest problem with this is that you won’t be able to find a suitable replacement for them. The original hardware likely matched the exterior of your doors and home; finding another set that matches just as well can be a tremendous hassle. If you get your locks rekeyed by The Flying Locksmiths, you won’t have to worry about any of that – you can just keep your already coordinating hardware!
