Rekeying is the process of modifying a lock so that a different key can operate it while the old one will not. Rekeying is done by changing the configuration inside the lock. The nice thing about rekeying is that it can be done without replacing the lock itself which makes it a more affordable solution.

Rekeying Locks: How to Re-key a Schlage Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith Video. For further information go to http://www.mrlocksmith.com

One of my favourite deadbolts is the Schlage B660 Deadbolt. It is a commercial grade deadbolt common in hospitals and schools and a great deadbolt for residential. Several options for keyways ranging from the popular Classic SC1 keyway to the new C129 and the High Security Primus (rated UL 437, pick resistant and drill resistant). Keyway selection is almost unlimited.
Most people think that when you lose or misplace your house keys, you need to replace the lock. Missing keys can jeopardize the safety of your home. We see horror stories all the time about people using missing or stolen keys to gain access to people’s homes — endangering the contents inside, as well as the people. Even if you just lone your key to someone else, they could make a copy before they return it to you (this happens a lot!). Because of this, we always recommend that you address the problem of missing house keys before it is too late.

Missing keys jeopardize the security of your home, however; this does not mean that you need to replace the door lock — instead, save yourself a lot of time and money by having your lock rekeyed. Almost all deadbolts, handle sets, and door locks are able to be rekeyed. A typical rekey costs around $100 while replacing the door lock can range between $250-$500.

A rekey is when the internal mechanism of the lock is rearranged or recoded to match a new set of keys. This is basic security work and every locksmith should be able to do this quickly and affordable. A rekey means that the old keys, including the missing or stolen keys, no longer operate the lock, and a new set of keys will. This is the most efficient way to secure your home.

Door locks typically have 5-6 pins inside the cylinder which align with the key to create a sheer line, allowing the cylinder to spin and draw the latch. During the rekey process, those pins are recoded to match a new key. When Mr. Locksmith rekeys your door locks, we give you 5 free keys, and we always guarantee the old keys no longer operate the lock.

We recommend rekeying your locks every time a key is lost, stolen, loaned out, or goes missing. This is the most effective way to ensure that someone doesn’t have access to your home.

We moved into a new place and needed the locks changed. We gave Patrick a call and he came the next day with recommendations of what locks would work good for us. After choosing our locks, he came back the next day and installed them for us. Patrick was friendly, courteous and professional. We would recommend him to others.

Called mr. Locksmith on Sunday to have 5 locks rekeyed after losing my keys. Patrick offered same day service as most business are closed on weekends and he didn't charge extra. He gave me a great price, answered his phone on the first call and was available to work within a few hours. He was efficient, professional and friendly. I highly recommend him to all.

My key got stuck in keyhole of my front door, which meant that I could not lock my door from the inside and that I would not be able to go out that evening to see my brother off at the airport. Patrick came within 20 minutes of my call. Thank you Patrick for your prompt, friendly and professional service. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
