Rekey Locks Versus Lock Replacement. This is a question I get all the time. People ask always whats the pro’s and cons and we will get into some of them later on in the blog.  I always tell customers if you are happy with your locks keep them.  We can always do monthly maintenance that can preserve them for a long life.

Some of the pros of rekeying the locks is cheaper than replacing them with new locks.  The savings is huge and if you can save money and change your key for whatever reason you have to.  Another advantage sometimes the paint can come off when you take locks off that haven been taken off since the door was painted.  Now if you are do a lock replacement the lock can not match up perfect with the missing paint and now you will have to either paint the door or touch it up.  Theres a old say if its not broken don’t have to be fixed.  Our Locksmith West Palm Beach will evaluate you locks and always give his advice on what kind of shape they are in and will tell you if its a must to replace.

Some of the cons are common sense.  First you are getting a new lock and will last a long time.  Second reason its obviously will look nicer when the lock is shinning on your door.  Our Locksmith West Palm Beach has all colors of locks or door knobs right in there van so you can go with what you want.  You can also go with a more high security lock than you had for more protection.

Now we are going to go over what rekeying really is.  It is when the locksmith West Palm Beach changes the pins in your lock to match another key.  Every key has the pins level so when the key goes in it can turn.  Now if the pins don’t go level when the key goes in it won’t turn.  That is why when locksmith West Palm Beach rekeys the lock they make sure it is level and every thing turns smooth.

Reasons why customers want to rekey.  People rekey when they want to change there key.  That usually happens when they either lose there keys and they are worried somebody might have them.  Another reason there is a break up or fight between there family that happens often.  Sometime people just want to change there key for whatever reason.

Well A Lenny locksmith West Palm Beach hopes this blog helped you out and if you have any questions feel free to call anytime we are always open.
