Lock rekeying is one of many services offered by Locksmith Tribeca. There are a number of situations when someone might consider lock rekeying in their home. Here are some of the possibilities:
Too Many Keys On Your Chain
This may sound trivial to some, but having too many keys on a keychain increasing the likelihood of eventually forgetting where one of the keys works. Many people don’t like a bulky key ring or the space that a handful of keys on a key ring takes up in a purse or in your pocket. Locksmith Tribeca can solve that problem by rekeying all the locks in your home to a single key.
How Many People Have Keys To Your Home
At some point, it’s simply a good security idea to change the locks or keys in your home. It’s a fact that most people give out copies of their home keys over time – to kids, workers, friends, and neighbors. At some point, it’s a good idea to begin again. You can change out the locks or call Locksmith Tribeca and ask the locksmith to rekey the lock so the old keys become ineffective. It’s not expensive but very effective. Make copies of the keys and give them out carefully to only a limited number of people you trust explicitly.
How Do I Find My Lost Keys
If a member of your family in your home has lost their keys, the only way to know that they didn’t fall into the hands of a thief is to rekey the locks in your home. If the lost key only worked on the main entry door, that’s the only lock you need to rekey. Rekeying locks is less expensive than replacing them and leads to the same result.
In a new home. Think for a moment about how many people had copies of the house key at your old home. That’s likely true in your new home and a compelling reason to change the keys in the home. If you buy a new lock and keys the old keys become worthless. In a new home scenario, the issue is the degree of safety offered by the locks in your home. If they are made of high-quality materials and include a heavy gauge deadbolt, then there really is no reason to replace the locks, which costs more than rekeying the locks.
