Rekey Locks And Save Money

Instead of installing a new set of locks, you can choose to rekey your existing locks. Lock rekey service is much faster and less expensive, as to rekey a lock means only to change position of the pins in the internal lock mechanism and not to replace the entire lock. After a locksmith will have changed the pins, they will also cut a new key for you, as the old ones will not work any more.

When To Rekey Your Locks

If you just moved into a new house, apartment or office, it is recommended to rekey all your locks.

What Customers Say About Us

Customers Testimonials

I usually have the worst luck with these types of services… my experience this time was completely different! I lost my keys somewhere on the way home from work yesterday; I called for a locksmith that could get to me QUICK!! The locksmith was here in about 7 minutes- no joke!! I was so relieved to get inside my house.

Ok, first of all, good prices, secondly, the locksmith was really an expert, replacing my locks on the front and back doors of my house. In my last house we had this done, and the locksmith ended up damaging the door, it was a whole mess. This time it was pleasure, Chris- you did a great job man.

Excellent service
I would recommend to anyone. I locked myself out of the office, there was no one in the building that late, I considered calling my business partner to bail me out, but that was something I could never live down. When I called I was so relieved to find that it was a 24 hour service. The locksmith showed quickly and really helped me out!

The windows in our house are so old and it occurred to me that the locks may not be safe anymore. So we called a locksmith to come have a look and it turns out I was right, the locksmith replaced all the locks that day. I feel much safer now. Thank you for that.

These guys are hands down the best locksmiths in town!
I was out shopping in an outlet mall, about 45 minutes out of town. When I got back to my car, my keys were gone!! I was ready to cry, completely exhausted… I called your locksmith service, and within 30 minutes Steve shows up. He got me back into my car and cut me new keys all for a very reasonable price.
