What Is Lock Rekeying?

The term ‘rekeying’ refers to the change of tumblers in the lock cylinder to stop a set of older keys from opening it. Post-rekeying, the existing locks accept only the new key set. Lock rekeying is ideal for:

  • New homebuyers who want to ensure the former owners and their friends and relatives no longer have access.
  • New tenants looking to ensure former tenants no longer have access.
  • Property owners that have fired/released a maid or any other employee with access to their property before.
  • People who have been separated from their spouse/partner.
  • People that have lost their house/office keys.
  • Landlords wanting to make a master key for their properties.
