The Rekeying Process
DC lock rekeying is a process where the tumblers inside the locking mechanism are replaced to fit with a new key. This process became possible in the 1850s when inventors named Andrews and Newell found a way to replace the tumblers. When you rekey a lock, the old key can be thrown away as it will no longer fit in the lock. This will ensure that previous owners will not be able to enter your new home. After the tumblers are changed, the lock will require a new key that corresponds with the new tumblers. Once a new key is matched, then your lock will be ready to operate with your new key. We can rekey your locks at a significantly lower cost than full replacement of the lock. Rekeying your locks is just as safe a choice as if you went and completed changed the lock system; however, a full replacement may be required if the locking mechanism is damaged.
