Lock replacement and lock rekeying can both give you a new set of keys for a given door. However, lock replacement may be a better option than lock rekeying in a given set of circumstances. This article discusses when it would be better for you to replace the lock instead of rekeying it when you lose your keys. The Lock Is Old It may be wiser for you to replace the lock with a new one in case the current lock is showing signs of aging, such as corrosion and discolouration.
Hi, my name is Olive, and when I was a kid, my dad was a safe manufacturer. I used to love being in his welding shop or accompanying him to jobs to make locks onsite. When I grew up, I did not follow in his footsteps, but I owned a restaurant, and I always thought of my then late father when I put cash into the safe at the end of the night. Through years of being a business owner – sometimes in a not very safe neighbourhood – I learned the importance of locks. I also learned how they can break, how to repair them and how to ensure they in working order. To honor my dad, I wanted to make a blog about locks and safes. Whether you are a business owner, a homeowner or someone curious about becoming a locksmith, I hope you enjoy reading these posts!
