Benefits of Rekeying a Lock
Many times, individuals will call a locksmith technician or company to change or rekey their locks for various reasons. In order to make the right decision, it is important to understand the difference between lock rekey and changing locks.
Lock change involves installation of a new lock while lock rekey occurs when you need to fix the tumblers and mechanisms of the pre-existing lock. With a lock rekey, instead of changing the entire lock, the locksmith simply changes the key to your lock and then resets the lock mechanism.
Most people will want to just change the lock altogether if it breaks down rather than fix it. However, actually keeping the lock and fixing it reaps several rewards.
First, you get to keep the style and size of the original lock. Second, getting the lock fixed may actually save you more money rather than tossing it. Compare getting the lock rekeyed at $40 as opposed to discarding it and getting a new lock such as a Smart Lock that goes anywhere from $15 to $150 these days. So if you’re living in a new home and want good quality, you may benefit from Rekeying Services Las Vegas.
