House Rekey

What is a Lock Rekey?

Understanding a Lock. Rekeying a lock means changing out to make a different key work with your lock than the current one. A residential lock usually has 5 top and bottom pins inside of the cylinder. The top pins usually are all the same length and the bottom pins are of various lengths. Each top and bottom pin are like a pair and when they meet at a sheer line the cylinder can turn to lock or unlock the lock.

Understanding a Rekey?

Just like most residential keys have 5 pins, there are usually 5 slots on residential keys that align with the 5 spaces where the pins are. Each slot is cut to a different depth and corresponds to the different lengths of the pins. Therefore, if you can replace the pins to those with different lengths, a key with a different combination of depths would now work in the lock. That is exactly what we do when we rekey a lock. We take out the bottom pins and replace them with ones of different lengths in different positions to match a different key.
