Pop-A-Lock Residential Rekeying Services

Rekeying your home helps protect the things that are important to you and your family. If your home is newly built, it is possible that construction crews or community managers are still in possession of duplicate keys. If your home is previously owned, family members, friends, and possibly service providers of the previous owners may still have access.
It is important to understand that rekeying a lock simply means changing the pins within the lock mechanism so that any old keys would not be able to open the lock. This is a safe and practical option for increasing security within your home and giving your family peace of mind without having to completely change the lock hardware.
Aside from securing your home from someone with a duplicate key, there are other reasons why rekeying your locks can be a smart decision:

  • Master Keys: Some communities, especially apartment complexes, have a master key that belongs to the owner/landlord of the building or community. Before considering rekeying for this reason, however, it is crucial to check your lease agreement or contract to determine whether rekeying is something you are allowed to do. For residential rekeying services, Pop-A-Lock’s locksmiths are your go-to experts.
  • Improper Construction: Every home build is different, and construction problems are bound to arise. If your home is new, it may be beneficial to check whether all of the locks in your home are properly working with their corresponding keys. If you find that there is a problem, give Pop-A-Lock a call and we’ll be able to assist you with any residential rekeying questions.
  • Old Locks: In pre-owned homes, there is no way to know when the last time the locks were changed or inspected was. Weak or deteriorated locks can cause stress regarding security.
  • Consolidation: Rekeying is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to ensure that all of their locks can be used with one key.

  • When Should I Rekey My Locks?
  • Why You Should Rekey Your New House


What’s the difference between rekeying a lock at my home and one at my business?

The biggest difference between these two types of locks is that commercial locks are more than likely more complicated and belong to a master system, therefore taking more time to rekey. While residential locks often only have 5 pins within the mechanism, commercial locks require higher security and can have between 5 and 7 pins. And while you can opt to rekey a single lock in a home setting, often businesses run on master keys, so rekeying one lock means rekeying all of them.

What is the price difference between lock rekeying and replacing for my home?

Though it is impossible to give an exact answer since pricing depends on several factors, it is safe to assume that rekeying locks will be much more affordable than replacing them.

Can all my house locks be rekeyed to fit the same key?

Most likely. The easiest way to tell if this is possible is to check the brands of all of your locks. If they are all the same brand, rekeying to fit a master key is possible. If this is not the case, however, switching to a master key system will require that certain locks be replaced first.
