DML Locksmith, based in Plano, TX, shares information on the benefits of re-entering locks instead of completely replacing locks. More information about the Texas 24/7 Locksmith can be found on their website, at the following link: https://www.dmllocksmith.com/.
David Elhadad, a representative for DML Locksmith, says: “If you’ve ever moved into a new home, separated from a partner, or lost the keys to your home, you’ve probably wondered if you could change your locks. While it makes sense for your mind to look at changing your locks first, there is actually an alternative: rekeying your locks. In fact, re-typing your locks is cheaper and often better.
As the company explains, re-entering a lock changes a lock’s working key to a different key. The lock itself is not replaced. This means that even if the lock remains the same, anyone trying to use the original key would fail. DML Locksmith notes that the key change process requires the locksmith to have a current assembly key. Otherwise, the lock will have to be hooked, which may incur more expense and therefore become more expensive than changing the locks.
A locksmith will rekey a lock by removing and reassembling the lock with different pins / pins. DML Locksmith ensures that when a lock is re-entered it does not become less secure. Since the number of pins inside determines the security of a lock, a locksmith replacing the existing five pins with five new pins will mean the lock is just as secure as it was before. It is very cost effective to rekey a lock because it reuses an existing lock structure instead of replacing everything, the key pins (the parts inside the lock) are inexpensive and owners will only have to pay a locksmith for labor and maybe another small fee.

Besides being very cost effective and just as secure as the original lock was, another benefit of re-entering a lock is to preserve the aesthetics of a lock that the owner loves. If an owner likes a certain brand of lock and how it looks, they can simply have the lock re-entered, without needing to find an identical replacement.
Rekeying a lock is also much faster than replacing it entirely. A skilled locksmith can rekey a lock quickly and effortlessly. There are only a few tools needed to complete the re-keying process and minimal manpower. If time is a factor when deciding between changing the locks or re-entering the key, re-entering will be the fastest option.
Elhadad says, “Most residential and commercial locks have the ability to be re-entered, and many locksmiths are able to re-enter locks, so it’s just a matter of your own whether you re-enter your lock or whether you replace it completely. However, there are of course many instances when changing your locks is necessary. For example, when you’ve been broken into your locks get damaged, or you want a more secure locking system than you currently have and more. There are also many cases where a simple key change can accomplish what you need, at a lower cost than changing the locks. Each method has its uses and works equally well, it’s up to you to choose what you want.
DML Locksmith also points out that the locks can also be changed for convenience. For example, when a house has a front door and a back door that each use different keys, it may be convenient to change the locks to use the same key. However, for this to be done, the locks must be of the same brand.
