If you are thinking changing you existing locks, you might want to look at an alternative --
Having a lock rekeyed (sometimes called repinned) involves taking the lock apart and changing the lengths of the pins inside the lock cylinder (tumbler) so it will no longer accept the old key. Our mobile locksmith will then make a new set of keys that match the series of new pins installed in the cylinder.
If you have good, quality locks, this is a better alternative to just replacing the locks. The lower priced bargain locks at your local department store are most likely of inferior quality to the locks you already have!
Yes, you can buy locks at your local department store and change them yourself, but using a lower quality lock will not keep you safe and they will not last! Over time these locks, often made in foreign countries, will not last requiring replacement again before long.
When you compare the cost of rekeying your existing locks with replacing your entire lock with a lock of the same quality, the cost of rekeying is a much better value.
