Phoenix EXPERT LOCK REKEY SERVICE
Are you looking to save money on replacing a lock? Consider contacting us to have it rekeyed instead. Our experienced locksmiths can rekey the door locks for your car or any door of your home.
Can I save money by rekeying a lock on my own?
You would likely end up spending even more money attempting your own repair than you would hiring a professional locksmith company from the start. Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework. Although the job of rekeying a lock might look easy, keep in mind that the people doing it are professionals who have specific training as well as the experience of having rekeyed hundreds or thousands of other keys in the past.
The good news is that we can usually rekey a lock unless it has severe internal damage. Sometimes customers want a lock rekeyed for security or personal preferences. We can do that as well. We are happy to replace your lock also, but we like to save our customers money whenever possible. The ability to save considerable money on lock replacement is one of the major benefits of choosing rekeying. You still end up with an upgraded lock. Whether you replace your lock or rekey it, the end result is that you have greater security at home, work, and when driving your car. We invite you to contact our company 24 hours a day, seven days a week to request lock rekeying.
What is the time estimate to have my lock rekeyed?
Although most jobs take just a few minutes to complete, yours could take longer depending on your individual circumstances. For example, older locks or those that our locksmiths must extract from inside of a door will take longer. Some brands tend to come apart easier than others for rekeying purposes as well.
As soon as one of our certified locksmith technicians arrives to your home or business or meets you at your vehicle, he or she will evaluate the situation with your lock and give you a more accurate estimate of how long you will likely need to wait. You can feel rest assured that we value your time and will work as efficiently as possible no matter what the situation.
Is it possible for me to rekey my own lock?
It probably seems like this wouldn't be a hard job to do. However, it only looks that way because the people rekeying your lock have done it countless times before and have extensive training as well. When you try to rekey your own lock, you could end up causing much more damage rather than resolve the problem. It requires in-depth knowledge of lock mechanisms as well as the need to complete steps in an exact order.
You obviously want to avoid this type of situation. At the first sign of a broken or worn lock, call us to request immediate service. We will arrive promptly and save you from having to remove and disassemble your own lock. Another reason to avoid a do-it-yourself rekey job is that you could put yourself and your family at an increased security risk.
Is it necessary to rekey locks when I take over ownership of a new home?
Yes, we always think this is a good idea and it's not just because we want to sell more rekeying services. We sincerely care about our customers and our community and would hate to see anyone become an unwitting crime victim. When someone moves out of a house, you don't know if they still have a valid set of keys or whether they gave a copy of their keys to someone with less than desirable intentions. Although the possibility is small, it's not a chance worth taking when our company is available to rekey the locks of your new home 24 hours a day.
Rekeying the locks of a new home is an important safety feature for yourself and your family. Besides the possibility of people who knew the previous owners trying to return, you need to consider the fact that some construction personnel could still have a valid key to your home. There's even the possibility that the lock to your home was master keyed. Starting over with an entirely new lock is a great way to begin life in a new home.
In the event someone did master key your lock, there's a strong possibility that it contains more master pins. The more master pins that exist within a lock, the greater the likelihood that more people can gain access to your home. That is because it will open to a number of different locks. When one of our locksmiths rekeys your lock, he or she removes the remaining master pins. This ensures that only you and your family members have control of the new key.

The lock rekeying process
Here are the steps involved in rekeying a lock for your home, office, or car:
Access the knob hole of the lock with a wire instrument and then apply pressure to loosen the knob from inside of the door; Pull out the upper ring of the cylinder and set it down until needed; Remove the lock cylinder's plug and use a plug follower to keep it together until we have removed it; Find the unique color code for each of the lock's pins and then insert the pins according to the color code to reassemble the lock; Ensure that no pins or springs have dislodged from the plug of the cylinder.
After completing these steps, we look again to make sure that all colored pins match their assigned code. Lastly, we place a key in the lock and attempt to open it and close it several times to check for proper functioning. It's our desire that all homeowners in your area feel safe and secure in their own home. We encourage you to consider rekeying your locks if you desire a security upgrade or feel concerned that your lock could break at some point in the near future. Just give our company a call to request service at your convenience.
