Reykeying refers to the ability to change a lock so that a different key may operate it. Rekeying is done when a lock owner may be concerned that unauthorized persons have keys to the lock. Rekeying is a process of changing the pin configuration of the lock so a new key will function while the old one wil not.
In addition to rekeying locks for security many home owners choose to rekey locks for convenience. There are several reasons you may choose to rekey the locks on the doors in your home, place of business, or other secure location. Some of the more common ones include moving into a new place, losing a key, loaning out a key and not getting it back, or wanting to have different keys for your front, back and side door. One way to reduce confusion and key weight of many keys on your key ring is to have all of your exterior locks rekeyed to use the same key.
