Boise EXPERT LOCK REKEY SERVICE
It costs a lot of money to replace a lock. When the need to replace a lock happens suddenly, you may not have the budget for it. Thankfully, you can save money and still get the lock repair you need by arranging to have us rekey your lock instead.
How do I know if it's possible to rekey the lock or if I should replace it instead?
You would likely end up spending even more money attempting your own repair than you would hiring a professional locksmith company from the start. Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework. Although the job of rekeying a lock might look easy, keep in mind that the people doing it are professionals who have specific training as well as the experience of having rekeyed hundreds or thousands of other keys in the past.
Rekeying your lock offers many benefits, including saving money over having to replace it entirely. You get an improved lock that looks better and helps you to feel more secure again. If you're considering having a lock rekeyed rather than replaced, please contact us to request our services right away.
What is the average turnaround time for lock rekeying?
Although most jobs take just a few minutes to complete, yours could take longer depending on your individual circumstances. For example, older locks or those that our locksmiths must extract from inside of a door will take longer. Some brands tend to come apart easier than others for rekeying purposes as well.
As soon as one of our certified locksmith technicians arrives to your home or business or meets you at your vehicle, he or she will evaluate the situation with your lock and give you a more accurate estimate of how long you will likely need to wait. You can feel rest assured that we value your time and will work as efficiently as possible no matter what the situation.
Should I consider rekeying my own lock?
No, we don't recommend this. Rekeying a look requires someone to have in-depth knowledge about how its inside mechanisms work as well as which pins to alter. You must complete steps in a precise order or your work will be in vain. We have seen people waste a lot of money and time attempting their own rekeying job that could have been avoided by working with a professional locksmith.
You obviously want to avoid this type of situation. At the first sign of a broken or worn lock, call us to request immediate service. We will arrive promptly and save you from having to remove and disassemble your own lock. Another reason to avoid a do-it-yourself rekey job is that you could put yourself and your family at an increased security risk.
Should I consider rekeying the locks when I move into a new home?
While it's not a legal requirement of any kind, we always think this is a good idea. You hardly know the people you bought the house from, much less the reputation of their family, friends, and associates. Unfortunately, any one of these people could still hold a key to your house. Rekeying the lock ensures that neither they or any unauthorized people can get into your house.
Rekeying the locks of a new home is an important safety feature for yourself and your family. Besides the possibility of people who knew the previous owners trying to return, you need to consider the fact that some construction personnel could still have a valid key to your home. There's even the possibility that the lock to your home was master keyed. Starting over with an entirely new lock is a great way to begin life in a new home.

The process of rekeying a lock
This is the general guidelines we follow when it comes to a rekeying service call:
Gain access to the lock's knob hole using a wiry instrument and then exerting firm pressure to free the knob; Locate the cylinder, pull on its upper ring, and set the ring aside for a few minutes; Pull on the plug of the lock cylinder and then hold it together using a plug follower until the entire plug is dislodged; Locate a color code that corresponds to each lock pin and use that information while putting the lock back together; Check to make sure that no springs or pins have broken free from the cylinder plug.
After completing these steps, we look again to make sure that all colored pins match their assigned code. Lastly, we place a key in the lock and attempt to open it and close it several times to check for proper functioning. It's our desire that all homeowners in your area feel safe and secure in their own home. We encourage you to consider rekeying your locks if you desire a security upgrade or feel concerned that your lock could break at some point in the near future. Just give our company a call to request service at your convenience.
