Our commercial locksmith unit in Happy Valley specializes in unlocking a business, security upgrades, high security locks and keys, systematic lock replacement or rekey, etc. Why might one need lock replacement instead of lock rekey or vice versa. This is a common question that many commercial clients pose, and the same can be said for residential locks as well. Replacing a lock is usually done when customers are no longer satisfied with the look of the lock, the security of the lock, or if the lock is damaged. Rekeying locks is related to the key. If you possess a fully functional lock but have no way to access it, a locksmith can pick it easily. However, the only way to replace a lost key for locks is to rekey the lock
itself. Cheaper and faster than full-on replacement, lock rekey causes none of the old keys to work anymore. This can also be used if random people might have access to the locks you want to rekey.
