Lock Re-Keying

Restrictor Stay filled to Aluminium Window

Lock Re-keying refers to the ability to change a lock so that a different key may operate it, replacing the original key.


Re-keying is undertaken to protect unauthorised persons from  having keys that work in a lock.  Re-keying is a relatively simple, cost effective process of changing the tumbler or wafer configuration of the lock, so a new key will function while the old one will not.  Re-keying may be done without replacement of the entire lock.


Sail City Locksmiths recommend lock re-keying when purchasing or moving into a new residence.  This gives the home owner complete confidence that they are the only holder of entry keys for the property.


Responsible landlords could offer this service when new tenants move into a property, so as to ensure that no previous tenant can re-enter the property after vacating.


Business owners should also consider re-keying locks on premises prior to moving into a new premises.  This ensures all property is safe from any previous holder of keys. Remember re-keying to a Restricted Security Key also provides confidence that keys cannot be duplicated without permission.

Re-keying is a cost effective way of maintaining good security on doors.
