Key Locksmith Services Explained01/07/2017 Back To Blog
Here we want to go over some of the most essential locksmith service offered by many locksmith companies. If you have never had a locksmith come and help you before, some of these terms will be new to you, and you may find yourself in need of one or two in future.
Full Rekey Services
This is either referred to as a rekey service or lock change. If you ever want your doors locks to be changed for any reason, this is the service you will need. You may have lost you keys in public, just moved in or have some other reason. A local locksmith will be able to adjust the pins within you lock to react to a different key shape. They will also cut you a new key to fit the new lock.
Emergency Lockout Service
Lockout opening services are necessary if you ever lock yourself out of the house, apartment or car. In any of these situations calling a locksmith company will be your best bet at getting the lock cracked and having a new key made for you if one is needed. If you have been locked out because your key has snapped in the lock, a locksmith will be able to effectively extract the broken key and replace it for a new one. The same applies for the replacement of car keys, cabinets and interior doors.
Restricted Keys&Smart Solutions
This is a service that many homeowners can benefit from but are not aware of. Restricted keys are designed to be very hard to duplicate. The idea is for your key to require special permission for a cutter to be able to create a perfect match. The duplication of regular keys in compression is relatively easy and is a common technique used by criminals. Those wanting to bolster the security of their lock systems as much as possible will find this concept hugely appealing.
