• Do I need my locks rekeyed?

  • Lock rekeying is the process of changing a lock to ensure that the previous keys no longer work. It is often an automatic response to losing your keys or having them stolen, but is not always necessary. Here are some things to consider:

    • Was the key stolen, as opposed to simply lost?
    • Is there identifying information on the keyring?
    • Was the key lost with a purse or alongside other items that might contain identifying information?
    • Was the key lost in the parking lot of your business?
    • Was the key kept by a terminated employee or former tenant?
    • Was the key lost somewhere that it is unlikely to be retrieved, such as down a toilet?

    The higher the likelihood that the key can be both easily retrieved and connected to your home or business, the more important it is to rekey the lock as soon as possible. In the case of a terminated employee or former tenant keeping the key, rekeying may rise to the level of immediate emergency.
