Why rekey instead of buying new locks?
When the locks are in good working order a rekey is much more cost effective then changing the locks and can accomplish the same goals. Lock hardware is pretty expensive to purchase new, and when you replace multiple locks, it can add up to several hundred dollars quickly. Also, when you purchase multiple new locks, they usually come with their own unique key. This means you will end up having a keychain full of different keys to operate each lock. This can all be avoided by simply rekeying your existing lock. In turn, you will end up saving a lot of money by using this simple, fast, and effective service.
Types of Rekey
- Door locks
- Car Locks

- Safe locks

Masterkeying is the the technique used to have one key that can open several different locks that are not keyed the same way. This is very common for facilities such as Universities, Apartments, Offices, and sometimes even large residential properties. Master keys can be relatively simple, using just a master and a user key. They can also be very complex having a grand master, multiple master, and sub master keys.
