Fort Worth Residential Locksmiths

discount house locksmith fort worth

home locksmith fort worthRekeying a lock on your home is the process of a locksmith coming to your home, removing each lock that you wish to rekey, the locksmith takes the lock cylinders out to the service truck, the locksmith then takes the lock cylinders apart on his or her mobile work bench in the locksmith service van, the locksmith next will remove the existing lock pins or lock tumblers as some call them, the locksmith will cut a new key that has a bitting or key cuts that are different from your old key, next the locksmith will insert new lock pins or lock tumblers in the lock cylinder that are the appropriate size to match the new key to the lock cylinder.

After this process, the keys that previously operated the lock cylinder will no longer work, and instead only the new keys will work. The locksmith then re-installs your locks on your doors, lubricates the locks and makes any needed strike plate adjustments, so that your newly rekeyed locks operate smoothly. Your locks have now been re-keyed and you have saved the added cost of buying new locks and hardware.

Our locksmiths also make it a point when rekeying locks on a home, to remove any master pins or master tumblers that may have beenplaced inside the lock cylinders by the builder of the home. Many home builders will key all the locks in a neighbor hood they are building to what is called a construction master key system. When the home is sold and the new home owner first uses their keys inthe locks, small ball bearings will fall into pre-drilled chambers in the lock to disable the master key. The problem is that there are still additional master pins in the lock which will allow other keys to operate the locks in addition to the new home owner's keys. These are called ghost keys. These additional pins also make it easier to pick the locks.

A locksmith can make you a new key from your existing lock, or rekey your locks to a different key, don't replace your locks... let us come out and rekey them to work with a new key. Once a locksmith rekeys a lock, the old keys will no longer work, and the locksmith will give you new keys that will work. We cut you as many new keys as you need onsite. Rekeying is like buying a new lock, but you save buying new hardware.
