Lock Change Service
New Locks or Rekeying - which is best for you?
If the locks are old and rusty, stiff and hard to use, or maybe lower security grade than you would wish, you should consider upgrading your locks. Access Locksmith Brisbane will remove your old lock and install a brand new one. This might be more expensive than simply rekeying locks but it gives you the chance to have the locks you choose and upgrade by using stronger and safer locks such as high security deadbolts.
Lock change is required when the existing lock fails to secure well, is damaged or old, or you simply want to reinforce the security of your property. In such cases, you can contact us to recommend the best solutions. We can definitely change the lock of your letterbox or file cabinets, but also replace an old or ruined door lock. Need digital deadbolt installation? You can trust that our team can install both digital and mechanical locks for both doors and windows. Our expert locksmiths arrive equipped properly in order to carry out the lock replacement and installation service in no time.
Rekeying is the process of modifying a lock so that a different key can operate it while the old one will not. Rekeying Locks 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.
Access Locksmiths Brisbane can Rekey the following types of Locks
- Cylinder lock
- High Security Cylinder Lock
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 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 Access Locksmiths rekeys your door locks, we give you new 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.
