Memphis EXPERT LOCK REKEY SERVICE
It costs a lot of money to replace a lock. When the need to replace a lock happens suddenly, you may not have the budget for it. Thankfully, you can save money and still get the lock repair you need by arranging to have us rekey your lock instead.
Can I save money by rekeying a lock on my own?
You would likely end up spending even more money attempting your own repair than you would hiring a professional locksmith company from the start. Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework. Although the job of rekeying a lock might look easy, keep in mind that the people doing it are professionals who have specific training as well as the experience of having rekeyed hundreds or thousands of other keys in the past.
One of the greatest benefits of rekeying your lock instead of replacing it is the money savings. You still get a new and improved lock without having to spend the money for replacement and new installation. Best of all, you feel more secure in your home, car, or office building as well. If you're considering rekeying one or more of your locks, please contact us as soon as possible. For your convenience, we have certified locksmith technicians available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
How long should I expect to wait while you rekey my lock?
Although this job often takes only a few minutes, it's not always possible to state upfront how long it will take to rekey your particular lock. It depends on several factors, including the brand, age, and general condition of your lock. One thing that could add to your total wait time is if we would need to get the lock you want rekeyed out of a door. It will take longer to do this with some types of locks than it will with others.
As soon as one of our certified locksmith technicians arrives to your home or business or meets you at your vehicle, he or she will evaluate the situation with your lock and give you a more accurate estimate of how long you will likely need to wait. You can feel rest assured that we value your time and will work as efficiently as possible no matter what the situation.
Is it possible for me to rekey my own lock?
It probably seems like this wouldn't be a hard job to do. However, it only looks that way because the people rekeying your lock have done it countless times before and have extensive training as well. When you try to rekey your own lock, you could end up causing much more damage rather than resolve the problem. It requires in-depth knowledge of lock mechanisms as well as the need to complete steps in an exact order.
It's a much better idea to leave the job of rekeying a home or auto lock to the experts. When trying to rekey your home lock, you need to first take the lock out of the door and then take it apart. All of this must take place before you can even start the rekeying process. Even though you may be handy in other areas and own a large collection of tools, it's best not to take the risk of working on your own lock. This could put you in a vulnerable position in terms of security as well as cost you more money to correct any mistakes that you make.
Should I consider rekeying the locks when I move into a new home?
Yes, we always think this is a good idea and it's not just because we want to sell more rekeying services. We sincerely care about our customers and our community and would hate to see anyone become an unwitting crime victim. When someone moves out of a house, you don't know if they still have a valid set of keys or whether they gave a copy of their keys to someone with less than desirable intentions. Although the possibility is small, it's not a chance worth taking when our company is available to rekey the locks of your new home 24 hours a day.
Rekeying the locks of a new home is an important safety feature for yourself and your family. Besides the possibility of people who knew the previous owners trying to return, you need to consider the fact that some construction personnel could still have a valid key to your home.

How we rekey a lock
This is the general guidelines we follow when it comes to a rekeying service call:
Access the knob hole of the lock with a wire instrument and then apply pressure to loosen the knob from inside of the door; Pull out the upper ring of the cylinder and set it down until needed; Remove the lock cylinder's plug and use a plug follower to keep it together until we have removed it; Find the unique color code for each of the lock's pins and then insert the pins according to the color code to reassemble the lock; Ensure that no pins or springs have dislodged from the plug of the cylinder.
At this point, the new color pins should match their corresponding color code on the written instructions. Our certified locksmith technicians complete each of these steps and then test the newly rekeyed lock along with the key several times. This is to ensure that if functions as it should. We want every home in this State to be safely secured. If you're concerned about your security or it appears that your lock is about to break, contact us for prompt rekeying of your lock.
