What is rekeying?
Rekeying is simply changing the inside parts of a lock to operate or work with a new key. Most locks have little pins inside of the lock that match the cuts of a specific key. To rekey a lock to a new key, a locksmith will just need to replace the pins inside the lock to match a new key. According to Wikipedia, locksmith rekeying is changing a lock in order to allow a different key to operate it.
What does rekeying cost?
The cost of rekeying locks is almost always less expensive than replacing all your home or business locks. Especially for businesses, commercial locks usually require more skill to rekey or repair, therefore rekeying a business or office complex usually cost more per lock to rekey. Generally, rekeying a single lock is on average about $65-85 with mobile service. This rate could increase between $10-20 per lock depending upon your needs. Lock-picking (required when you don’t have a working key) and master keying a lock (allows for multiple keys to work a lock) will also increase the price of rekeying.
Why rekey your locks?
We recommend rekeying locks when a home, business, or property owner when a home or business is bought or sold. If there is possibility that someone, either known or unknown, may have a key to your property, you should always consider rekeying. To make sure unauthorized individuals don’t have access to the property, our locksmith will change the lock pins so that only new keys will work in the lock. The list below are a few common examples of when locks should get rekeyed.
- Recent move into a new home/apartment

- Dismissal of an employee
- Business moves into a new property
