When a Jacksonville locksmith says he is re-keying your locks what is he doing exactly? Re-keying locks is changing the lock, allowing a different key to make the lock open. There are several reasons for a lock to be re keyed, but to get this done, it will require the services of a professional locksmith.
The reasons for needing to re-key your locks can range from losing your keys to your keys being stolen. If you move into a new house, or business you would also need to re-key or replace your locks because you do not know how many people still have keys. For a lock to be re-keyed it must have at least a National Standards Institute Grade 1 designation, or you may have to replace your whole lock. It can be expensive to replace an entire lock, so re-keying allows the old key to be replaced without replacing the entire lock. Here at J & J Locksmith we are highly trained in how to do this quickly and without mistakes, plus we can make you new keys right on site.
