Rekey Locksmith ServicesRekey Your Locks & What That Means
What does the term “rekey” mean? Rekeying should not be confused with replacing an entire lock. A locksmith simply disassembles the lock cylinder – the area that accepts the key – discards the old pins, and replaces them with ones that fit your new key. This is a cost effective way to replace old keys with new ones, and it only takes a short amount of time to complete.
