Q: What does it mean to “re-key” my locks?

A: Re-keying is typically done to make a new key fit your current locks and to make the current key no longer work. Other options include master re-keying, which allows multiple keys to fit the same lock.

Q: When should I re-key?

A: It is important to re-key your locks anytime you move into a new home or business. This ensures that you are the only person with access to the new building or residence. It is also a good idea to re-key when firing an employee or removing a roomate. Even if an individual returns a key, other copies could exist.
