Let’s say that for security reasons you want to replace some of your locks. Did you know that it is possible to alter your existing locks to fit a key you already have or new key? This process is called ‘rekeying’ and it involves changing the ‘tumblers’ of a lock cylinder with a different combination of tumblers.
You might want to rekey your locks because you would prefer some or all of your locks to be opened with the same key, or because you have lost a key. Other reasons include moving house or place of business in Melbourne and not wanting the bother and expense of replacing all the existing locks, and being concerned about past owners or tenants having access to your property. You also may prefer to have only one or two keys in your possession instead of a large heavy bunch to carry around, and then try to figure out which key fits in which keyhole!
Rekeying requires the ability to understand how lock mechanisms work and to use fine tools in the process. It is far better to have a trained expert rekey your locks than to try to do it yourself. Rekeying is a service offered by many locksmiths and costs less than replacing all your existing locks.
