What Is A Lock Rekey?
Most common locks contain a certain set amount of pins inside. When a key, with ridges, in inserted into the lock, the pins are moved by the bumps on the key. Basically, the key pushes the pins in a matter that allows the lock to turn and be locked or unlocked.
In a rekey procedure the locksmith changes the combination of the pins within the lock. The current key then will no longer work with the adjusted pins, and a new key will have to be made. And there you have it, upgraded security without the need to change the lock.
