What is a Rekey?

You have probably heard about rekey, but you don’t know what it means in the actual sense. Rekey is simply the processing of changing an existing lock in such a way that only a new key can operate it (the usual key will no longer work with the lock). In the process of rekeying, the configuration of the lock tumbler will be changed to the one that will allow a new key to work with the lock and the old lock will not work on it again. 

If you are considering moving into a new home and you want to change the locks, or your current lock has been compromised by an invader recently, you should contact Top Atlanta Locksmith as soon as possible for a reliable rekeying service.

What are the advantages of the rekey process

The main change involved in the rekey process is the changing of the tumbler configuration inside the lock. The tumbler configuration comprises several pins that will allow a particular key to open the lock when the correct key has been inserted. 

One of the main advantages of a rekey over the key or lock replacement is that it does not involve a laborious procedure, hence it consumes less time, less energy and fewer resources. With a rekeying process, you don’t have to replace an entire lock, you need to change only the pins inside the lock so that a new key will work. 

Not only is rekey cheaper and less time consuming that lock replacement, it can offer the most suitable safety measure for homeowners, commercial property owners, and realtors who want peace of mind. Aside from the rekey process, you will also require a new set of keys that will open the lock easily. 

Another benefit of having a rekey is that the locks and key used in most homes and commercial places will eventually work out from the inside, therefore having a rekey will prevent the instances of accidentally breaking the key inside the lock.  When a lock malfunctions, it becomes more difficult to open, and that could end up causing mechanical breaks that will force the homeowner to buy a new lock and key. Rekeying will reduce the risks of breaking your key inside your lock.
