Rekeying Locks: Enhance Your Home Security

Ensuring the safety and security of your home is a top priority for any homeowner. One of the most effective ways to enhance your home security is through rekeying locks. This process involves changing the internal components of your existing locks so that old keys no longer work, and new keys are required. At Fast Locksmith, we offer professional rekeying services to residents and businesses, ensuring your property remains secure and protected.


Rekeying is a process where the internal pins and springs of a lock are adjusted or replaced so that the existing key no longer works. Instead, a new key is provided to operate the lock. This method is highly efficient, cost-effective, and a practical solution for enhancing security without having to replace the entire lock system.

How Rekeying Works

The rekeying process involves several steps:
  1. Removing the lock cylinder from the lock.
  2. Replacing the old pins and springs inside the lock cylinder with new ones that match a new key.
  3. Reassembling the lock and testing the new key to ensure it works smoothly.


Rekeying ensures that old keys no longer have access to your property, making it an excellent choice after moving into a new home, losing a key, or experiencing a break-in.

Compared to replacing all the locks in your home, rekeying is a much more affordable option, providing the same level of security enhancement.

 If you have multiple locks with different keys, rekeying can be used to create a master key system, simplifying access to your home.

There are several situations where rekeying your locks is highly recommended:

  • Moving into a new home or apartment

  • Losing a key or having one stolen

  • Experiencing a break-in or attempted break-in

  • Renting out property or having a tenant move out

  • After ending a relationship or changing roommates
