WHAT DOES LOCK REKEY MEAN?

How does a professional locksmith rekey a lock? Well, the first thing a locksmith needs is a rekey kit. Once the locksmith is on site and ready to begin, he or she will need to remove the door knob before the actual rekey can begin. After the tech removes the door knob, he can then use a tool to remove the lock cylinder. The relationship between a key and a lock is defined by the teeth cut on the key and pins of the lock. When rekeying a lock, we will be removing the lower pins and replacing them with new ones. After the pins are aligned with the new key, the tech will put the lock back together
