How Do Our Locksmiths Rekey a Lock?

After the new key is in the cylinder, new pins are inserted to match the new key’s cut pattern.

Lock rekeying involves changing a lock’s internal components to work with a new key. This process is a practical and cost-effective solution to ensure old keys no longer provide access to your property. Instead of replacing the entire lock, rekeying focuses on altering the pins within the lock cylinder, making it a straightforward yet effective security measure. Here’s a brief overview of how our locksmiths rekey your locks:

  1. Remove the lock from the door and remove the cylinder.
  2. Remove the old pins from the cylinder and insert a new key cut specifically for your rekeying job.
  3. Insert new pins into the cylinder that precisely match the cuts on the new key.
  4. Reinsert the cylinder into the lock and reattach the lock to the door.
  5. Test the lock to make sure it’s working perfectly.
  6. Rinse and repeat for any additional door locks the customer wants to be rekeyed.

Commercial Lock Rekeying Services

Schlage Primus high-security IC core lock

Schlage Primus is a brand of high-security IC core locks designed for commercial use. The cylinder core is designed so it can be quickly swapped out by a professional locksmith using specialized tools.

Maintaining a high level of security in and around your property is vital for businesses in Pittsburgh, and rekeying locks is much more budget-friendly than replacing the whole lock. We can rekey a wide range of commercial locks for external door and gate locks, office doors, IT server rooms, supply closets, file cabinets, safes, and more. If you have a master key system with IC core (interchangeable core) locks, we can rapidly rekey those locks by swapping out the cores using specialized control keys.

Automotive and Motorcycle Lock Rekeying

Our highly-trained locksmiths can also rekey the door, trunk, glove box, and other storage box locks for your car, van, truck, SUV, and motorcycle. If you’ve lost your keys, you suffered an attempted break-in, or you bought a used car or motorcycle, and you want to make sure the door locks are 100% secure, give us a call, and we’ll come out and rekey them, and make as many duplicates of the key and fob/remote as you need.

Benefits of Lock Rekeying

Rekeying provides several advantages over completely replacing locks, including:

  • Enhanced Security: Old keys no longer work, preventing unauthorized access.
  • Cost-Effective: Less expensive than replacing all the lock hardware.
