Richmond CanadaMatrix Locksmith, one of the largest home security specialist companies in Toronto, is advising customers requesting a lock change that, in many cases rekeying is a more economical, efficient and environmentally friendly option.

Many customers approach the company following a change in circumstances, such as a separation, the loss of a set of house keys, or moving into a new property. They anticipate an expensive process involving replacing all of the locks in the property and all of the hassle that entails. However, the team at Matrix Locksmith are advising the vast majority of these customers that rekeying may be a far superior alternative.

Rekeying a lock involves changing the working key of the lock to a different key, without replacing the lock itself.  In simpler words – you keep the same lock but the old key will no longer operate it. This is done by taking the lock apart and replacing some of the parts inside (called “tumblers” or “key pins”).”. This delivers the significant benefit to the customer of not needing to replace the lock. However, anyone who has possession of the original key will no longer be able to gain access to the property. The only stipulation for this process to be successful is that the homeowner must be in possession of the original key.

A Matrix Locksmith will rekey the locks by disassembling and then reassembling the lock with different pins and tumblers. There is no reduction in the level of security provided by the lock, but the process is much more cost-effective, and only the pins or tumblers need to be replaced rather than the entire locking mechanism, meaning that the cost is significantly reduced. Additionally, the aesthetic of the door remains intact because the main housing of the lock does not need to be replaced.

“Matrix Locksmith is committed to delivering the best possible value to our customers at all times,” said Helen, a spokesperson for Matrix Locksmith. “We are not in the business of performing unnecessary work to charge our customers more, which is why we are advising more and more people to take advantage of our rekeying option rather than a more expensive replacement of the lock. It is this kind of integrity that our business has been built upon, and why we receive so many referrals from previous customers.”
