Lock rekeying FAQs

Can I change keys without changing the whole lock?

Yes, you can get your locks rekeyed. This basically means modifying existing locks so that only new keys can open them instead of replacing the whole thing.

When should locks be rekeyed?

There are a number of reasons for rekeying a lock rather than having it replaced. One of the most common of which being safety and security. Whether you choose to rent or purchase a new property, security is always of primary concern. Both commercial and residential properties can suffer from compromised security if the locks are not rekeyed. When a property is sold or rented out to a new tenant, there is no way of knowing just how many key copies have been made. There is also no way of knowing who might have a copy of one or more of the keys. So, before you start moving in your furniture or equipment, it's a good idea to have the locks rekeyed for security reasons. Many single-builder communities have locks with master keys which means that there are several keys out there that can operate the lock. By having the lock rekeyed, the master pins will be removed which means that your new key will be the only one that can lock and unlock the door. If you need to have work done on the property prior to moving in, you can put rekeying on the back burner for as long as it takes for the contractors to complete their work. The last thing you want is to have locks rekeyed only to hand a key over to your contractor.

What if rekeying doesn't work?

There are some cases that call for lock replacement rather than rekeying, which means that it's a good idea to be prepared for this possibility. When our team arrives, we will take a look at the state of the lock in order to determine whether or not it is the best candidate for rekeying. If there are significant wear and tear, our expert team will make recommendations accordingly. We always want every client to enjoy quality results that last, which is why we take the time to consider all possible solutions, should rekeying not prove to be the best option.

How is a lock rekeyed?

When you need a lock rekeyed, the pins and springs that are tucked away inside the lock cylinder will also need to be replaced. The new set of springs and pins will have a different configuration which means that they will no longer operate when you insert the old key. The lock will now only open when you use the new key. The main advantage of having a lock rekeyed is the fact that you don't need to have the entire lock replaced. Our team at Toronto Top Locksmith is available 365 and 24/7 for your lock rekeying and other lock services.

Can I rekey all of the locks in my house so they only use one key?

If you would like one key to open all of the doors in your home we can rekey all of your locks and create "master key" for you.

How do I know if my lock needs to be rekeyed or replaced?

If your lock is in good condition and you would like to keep them on your doors, then rekeying is your best option. However, if your lock is damaged and you would like new locks with a different type of security, then rekeying is the better option.
