How does re-keying work?

How does re-keying work? What we do as locksmiths is to pull apart the lock to re-key or change the pins inside the barrel itself, so that your old key doesn’t work any more. This is a cost effective way of doing this without having to replace the entire lock itself (which is another option). You can also buy DIY re-keying kits and resources, but obviously I’d recommend you draw on a professional if you’re not sure what you’re doing (don’t mess around with security). Tri County Lock

10 quick security tips

Keep all doors and windows closed and securely fastened. An open window or door is an open invitation for burglars. Thieves are also quick to spot weak locks that may be easily forced open. Doors should have deadbolt locks with a one inch throw and reinforced strike plate with three inch screws. All windows should have window locks. Secure sliding glass doors. Place a metal rod or piece of plywood in the track and install vertical bolts. These will help prevent burglars from forcing the door open or lifting it off the track. Always lock the door to an attached garage. Don’t rely on your automatic garage door opener for security. Create the illusion that you are home. by using timers on light

Giving contractors and service people keys to your home

Giving contractors and service people keys to your home. This is by far the dumbest mistake that new homeowners can make, but it is an understandable one – sort of. When you move into a new house, you might not have all the time to keep running back home to open the door for electricians, the cable guy, your contractor or whomever else might be working on your house. The most logical is to simply leave a key under the mat, but this can prove catastrophic – you never know who you can trust. Be sure to have your home professionally Re-Keyed. Tri County Lock
