Every door in my business has its own key and my key ring is getting heavy. Can you help us have less keys? Yes, rekeying existing locks save you money! The main benefit of rekeying is that it is usually much cheaper than buying a whole new lock. You can bring the locking mechanism us or a locksmith can come to your home or business. Our locksmith will then adjust the tumblers in the lock to match a key. It's usually easier and takes less time to rekey a lock than to install a new lock.
