Posted on 22nd, Feb 2016
Ok if I ask re-key or change the lock? A door acts as a first guard for your security. The door in question could be the front door of your house, your office or a car door. Doors give us a sense of security, which is why the industry has advanced when we consider highly efficient locks that are now being installed to increase the security of a homeowner, office owner or a car owner. BUT, if you aren’t sure who has the keys to your car, home or office except for you and your family, that sense of security quickly falls equal to null or zero.
- When you are uncertain about the security of your locked door, you and your family naturally get worried about intruders. Or at least a possibility of an intrusion. During these situations, it is highly and extremely important that you change or re-key your locks. How to know if your worries are true and if your door locks really need to be changed or re-keyed? Let’s take a look.
- Have you moved to a new home?
- Did you buy a new but secondhand car?
- Have you lost a key and are worried where has it ended up?
- Someone stole your key
- You are thinking about re-keying your home to a master key lock
- You were robbed recently
- The door lock isn’t functioning properly
- Your lock has been in use for years but you think it needs to be upgraded
