House Re-Key Locks Vs New Locks in Atlanta
Re-keying is the process of replacing the tumblers or pins of a lock cylinder with new ones of different sizes. Upon completion, a new key is required to operate the lock. If the lock functions well and matches the style you like, then re-keying is the best solution. This service saves money and time by eliminating the need to buy and install a new deadbolt or door knob lock. Locks should be re-keyed when first moving into a property, when a set of keys is lost, or when you terminate an employee.

Rekey Your Home In Atlanta, GA with Pop-A-Lock Residential Locksmith Service
Many people hear about rekeying a house, changing locks and taking actions to make their residence more secure. But most of the time, the language gets confusing, and it’s difficult to know what actually needs to be done. Rekeying is the most common residential locksmith service most locksmiths provide.
Fundamentally, when you rekey your house, you are changing the cylinders inside your door knobs and deadbolts so that they all work with the same key. Note you are not putting in new locks, just changing the pins in the core of the lock. It’s the round portion of the locks where the key gets inserted. Most people think this is an expensive task, but you can change all your locks to use the same key for usually $75-$100 in the Atlanta area.
Often, we get called when a lock at someone’s house is broken and needs to be fixed. Sometimes this means a new lock is needed, sometimes it just means the pins need to be adjusted and / or the door hardware needs to be tightened up. It’s fairly inexpensive if you don’t need to replace knobs, deadbolts, strike plates and other hardware.
When we come out to fix locks, we usually ask customers if they want to rekey the whole house. Once we’re onsite, we can perform an entire rekey fairly quickly. This is important because over time most people have given out a lot of keys to their house, have lost keys, or have installed new locks that have different keys. By rekeying the entire house and changing the locks to use the same key, you not only make your life easier, but you prevent anyone who might have gotten a key to your house from getting in.
