Replacing a key is the process of replacing a cylinder so that the existing key can no longer open the lock. This process allows you to regain control of the security of your room and its contents. A room can be kept open while the cylinder is removed for replacement. The process of re-encryption should be completed in just a few minutes. A new key will be created to match the newly re-encrypted lock. After relocking the lock, you should protect who gets a copy of the key.
Repurchase is a cheaper alternative to buying a new lock because you will be reusing the existing door lock. Re-encrypt only changes the internal cylinder of the lock. Since you are modifying the internal cylinder, re-encryption requires special hardware. The locksmith will be able to relock the lock for you. They can also make multiple copies of the new key. The Lock Rekey Washington DC has special equipment in the vehicle that can be used at your site to relock the lock and make new keys.
Buying a new lock is another alternative. Anyone can remove and install a new lock on the door. Usually you only need a screwdriver to remove the old screwdriver and install a new screwdriver. The only cost of installing a new lock is the cost of the new door locks and the time it takes to install them. Unlike re-encryption, installing a new one does not require any special equipment.
