A verified residential locksmith, otherwise known as a home locksmith or apartment locksmith, is a professionally trained and insured technician that’s able to work on your home door, home locks, home safe, home keys, and possibly even home cameras.  Most locksmiths are highly trustworthy and honest people who care about your safety and protection.

Typically, residential locksmith customers are in need of a lock rekey.  A lock rekey is one of the most common services a local locksmith can provide because it is cost effective when compared to completely replacing your locking hardware.  Rekeying locks is sometimes referred to as changing locks but it is best to clarify which service is needed when scheduling the appointment with your local locksmith.

Two of the more common reasons for having your home locks rekeyed are: you’ve moved into a new home, or you realize you’ve given copies of your keys to too many people.  A quick and simple service call to a local locksmith can fix both these situations and make sure your home is completely secure.

So what exactly is a lock rekey? It’s the process of removing your lock from the door, disassembling it, removing all the bottom pin tumblers and replacing them with new pin tumblers of different heights so that a new key will create a totally different shear line.  This means your old key will no longer work your lock. In fact, after taking apart your lock, many locksmiths will check the entire inside of your lock cylinder to ensure it has all top pins and springs.  They’ll then lubricate the lock before putting it back together. Locksmiths are very familiar with the multitude of different residential locks and keyways out there and they’ll make sure your lock is as secure as possible.
