Lock Re-Key Service
When moving into a new house or business, it is important to verify that no other person is in possession of duplicate keys. The most effective way to prevent this, is by re-keying your existing locks.
This process involves removing the lock and changing the combinations of internal pins and levers so they function on a completely different key. This renders the old keys useless on the existing lock and saves you the time and expense of replacing all the locks on your property.
Our locksmiths are highly trained and efficient in ensuring the re-keying process is executed accurately, and to your specifications. This may be carried out on-site at your residence or by scheduling an appointment at our storefront location.
When you have an existing lock and simply wish to alter the key, call GET Locksmith at (713) 766-6328!
