What does the rekey procedure involve?
So what does rekeying locks mean? Rekeying locks is a process wherein the entire locking mechanism is replaced with a new one. The old keys are thus unable to open the lock and the rekeyed lock needs a new key to open it. The process is as effective as installing a new lock. Lock rekeying gives you better control of who can access your property.

Some common scenarios where you can opt to rekey locks are:
- Moving to a new property: If you have shifted to a new house recently, you might want to rekey the locks in the property. You never know how many people, including the contractors, previous tenants and real estate agents have the keys to the lock and you would do well to rekey your locks for improved security.
- You’re renting out to someone new: If you have recently evicted your tenant, you must rekey your locks so that your ex-tenant cannot use the spare keys without your permission.
- After divorce/fall outs: If you have fallen out with your spouse or an employee, the best way to go is to rekey your locks. This will prevent them from gaining access to your property.
