Knowing when you should rekey your locks is crucial for all homes. Lock rekeying normally happens when someone looses their keys to their home or business.  They become worried that someone who has one of the keys may try to enter their property to steal from them, or even worse, to harm them.

Another reason may be it’s been a while since you have had your locks rekeyed and you are unsure who else has keys to your property. It could be an old neighbour or friend you once trusted and now you have lost contact with them, or the relationship changed.  The trust level drops, and your worries increase.  It also happens when there is split up in a relationship.

Why should you rekey your locks?

On a lighter note, we love to attend sites and rekey locks on happy occasions as well. For example, when there is a new purchase of a home, business, or investment property is made.  All these reasons provide a great opportunity to have the locks rekeyed.  It’s also a good idea from a security and legal point of view to rekey your locks so that you, and only you has access to your property.

Another common reason for lock rekeying is for convenience

At Five Star Locksmiths, we see clients every day with lots of keys for their house that could sink a ship with them.  I then ask them, “did you know that I could key alike all the locks in your house to just one single key or at least to just a few?”.

There are many reasons why you would, and should rekey your locks, and at Five Star Locksmiths this is something we do on a regular basis.
