At Top Security Locksmiths in Point Plesant, NJ, we can rekey a huge range of locks including deadbolts, residential door locks, high-security locks, filing cabinet locks, automotive door, trunk, and glovebox locks, and more! Our highly trained locksmiths have years of experience in the industry, making us a trusted and reliable choice for all your lock rekeying needs in Ocean County and Monmouth County.

What is Lock Rekeying? Let us Explain

Rekeying or changing a lock is the process of altering a lock’s internal lock cylinder so it works with a new key. One of the most popular rekeying services we provide is changing/rekeying the exterior door locks for new homeowners. We also get a lot of calls from businesses and other commercial properties asking us to change the locks on office doors when an employee has lost their set of keys or there’s been a break-in.

So you can have a better understanding of how we change your locks, here’s a basic overview of how it’s done:

  1. The locksmith cuts a new key with a unique pattern of notches.
  2. The lock is removed from the door and the cylinder is removed from the lock.
  3. The pins are dumped out of the cylinder and the new key is inserted.
  4. New pins are inserted into the cylinder that match up with the notches on the new key.
  5. The cylinder is reinserted into the lock and the lock is reattached to the door.
  6. Your rekeyed lock is tested to make sure it’s working perfectly.
  7. Our locksmith will cut as many extra copies of the new key as you need.

Common Lock Rekeying FAQs

What does it mean to rekey locks?

At Top Security Locksmiths, our professional locksmiths rekey locks by replacing the internal pin tumblers so existing keys no longer work. We install new pins matched to your new key for refreshed security. We also lubricate the lock components and test for smooth functionality in the rekeying process.

Should I rekey the existing locks when I move into a new home?

We highly recommend rekeying locks when moving into a new property. Even if the previous owners give you their keys, other copies may still be out there. Rekeying through Top Security Locksmiths ensures no surprise visitors and security peace of mind in your new home.

Is there a difference between rekeying and master keying?

Yes, rekeying switches out lock components so a new key now opens a lock versus the old key. Master keying organizes multiple locks into groups that each have their own key, but designated master keys can open them all. Top Security Locksmiths can explain all your rekeying and master keying options.

Should I rekey my lock on my apartment that I rent?

It’s wise to rekey rental units for added security, but check with your landlord first since they legally retain right of access. We suggest compromising where you rekey your unit to your own new key, but provide the landlord spare copies to keep on hand for emergencies per the lease terms. This way you control day to day access.

As a new homeowner, what steps should I take regarding locks and keys?

As a new homeowner and Top Security Locksmiths client, we recommend full home rekeying, installing new deadbolt locks if needed, arranging master key access if desired, replacing any visibly worn locks, considering keypad electronic locks where useful, and originating enough copies of your new keys for your needs. We offer package deals on these services.

How much does rekeying a lock cost?

Our lock rekey prices depend on factors like the number of locks, type of hardware, master key setup, and special services requested. Call us for an exact quote!
