What is the time estimate to have my lock rekeyed?
Although most jobs take just a few minutes to complete, yours could take longer depending on your individual circumstances.

How likely is it that I can rekey my own lock?
No, we don't recommend this. Rekeying a look requires someone to have in-depth knowledge about how its inside mechanisms work as well as which pins to alter. You must complete steps in a precise order or your work will be in vain. We have seen people waste a lot of money and time attempting their own rekeying job that could have been avoided by working with a professional locksmith.
It's a much better idea to leave the job of rekeying a home or auto lock to the experts. When trying to rekey your home lock, you need to first take the lock out of the door and then take it apart. All of this must take place before you can even start the rekeying process. Even though you may be handy in other areas and own a large collection of tools, it's best not to take the risk of working on your own lock. This could put you in a vulnerable position in terms of security as well as cost you more money to correct any mistakes that you make.
Should I plan to rekey my locks when I move into a new home?
While it's not a legal requirement of any kind, we always think this is a good idea. You hardly know the people you bought the house from, much less the reputation of their family, friends, and associates. Unfortunately, any one of these people could still hold a key to your house. Rekeying the lock ensures that neither they or any unauthorized people can get into your house.
Some people have formed a poor impression of locksmiths because they assume that they recommend this service strictly for their own financial benefit. This is simply not true. , we happen to think that you just can't be too careful when it comes to your family's security. It's not uncommon for construction workers and others with access to the home for a period of time to master key the lock. That means potential intruders could use several different locks to gain access.
