Lock Rekeying

Rekey Your Locks and Boost Your Security

If you live in or around Schererville, IL and you want to significantly improve the security of your home, business, or car, one of the most affordable options out there is rekeying your existing locks. When a lock is rekeyed the pins in the internal lock cylinder are reconfigured so they match up with the cuts on a new key so ONLY the new key can open the lock. At Northwest Keyway, we can rekey a wide variety of locks including:

  • Residential door knobs and deadbolts on external and internal doors
  • Commercial-grade door knobs and deadbolts inside and outside the building
  • Filing cabinets, storage cabinets, and backyard shed doors
  • Car doors, trunks, glove boxes, and truck toolboxes

Rekey Your Home’s Door Locks For Peace of Mind

When our locksmiths rekey a lock they replace the pins in the internal lock cylinder so they match up with the cuts in a brand new key.

If you’ve had the same front, side, or back door lock for more than a decade there’s a good chance you may not remember everyone you gave a copy of the key to, and not knowing exactly who had access to your home can be very unsettling. Instead of shelling out big money to replace all the lock hardware on your doors, our residential rekey service is an affordable option that will render all those old keys useless and help you feel safe and secure again. The top benefits of lock rekeying vs. lock replacement are:

  • Rekeying saves you considerable money: Rekeying the internal lock cylinder of your existing locks is significantly cheaper than replacing the entire lock.
  • One-key convenience: Our locksmiths can rekey multiple locks to work with the same key, and many homeowners love the convenience of being able to use the same key for the deadbolt and doorknob lock.
  • Stop unwanted visitors: Our rekeying guarantees past homeowners, renters, dog walkers, babysitters, contractors, etc… can’t enter your property with their old keys.
  • Keep the door hardware that you love: If you have a matching lock set on your front door that you love the look of, you can keep it AND improve your security.

But you’re not limited to rekeying just your front door locks! Our trained locksmiths can rekey many different types of home locks including padlocks, bedroom door knob locks, deadbolts, patio sliding door locks, and more. If you have a lock and you’re not sure we can rekey it, give us a call or email us and we’ll let you know if we can do it.

Commercial Rekeying Options

Companies have specialized security needs, and it’s important to stay on top of who can and can’t access your property. If you aren’t sure if any past employees can still access your property with their old keys, our locksmith technicians can come out to your location and rekey external and internal locks in and around your offices, warehouses, factories, etc, so you can rest easy knowing your property is secure. If you want to end the stress of worrying about who has a copy of which key, we can upgrade you to keypad locks that can be programmed for only one or multiple groups of access codes tailored for your workers.

Here are a few of the top benefits of hiring Northwest Keyway to rekey the locks around your commercial property:

  • Block entry of ex-employees: Rekeying guarantees former staff members can never enter your property again.
  • One-key convenience: As with our residential rekeying service, we can rekey multiple locks to work with the same key. For example, we can rekey the lock on an employee’s office door so it uses the same key as the closet inside their office.
  • Satisfy business insurance rules: Our rekeying services will help you stay on top of requirements for securing your property.

We can rekey exterior and interior doors, private office entry doors, supply closets, filing cabinets, equipment lockers, and more. Rely on the capable experts at Northwest Keyway for your business’s lock rekeying needs.
