    House Lock Rekeying

    In many cases, you can have your locks rekeyed instead of replaced. Rekeying is the process of realigning the pins inside the lock cylinder so it fits to a new key. This makes it so the old key no longer works.

    If you believe a stranger may have had access to your keys, or if you’re worried an individual may have a duplicate key, rekeying will be a good option for you as it’s usually less expensive than replacing the locks.

    Rekeying can also be used for other purposes, such as adding convenience. We can rekey your front and rear door locks to use the same key, for example, so instead of two keys you only need one. It’s very common for customers to have their front door, rear door, side doors, and garage door all rekeyed to use the same key.

Why Commercial File Cabinet Locks are Important?

Commercial file cabinet locks are important because they add another key level of security for the documents and information that you and your team value the most.

If an intruder in your office or even someone on your team would try to access vital information, file cabinet locks might be the last or only thing that stands in their way. Having commercial file cabinet locks could make the difference between losing private company information, financial documents, logins and passwords, and more.

Types of File Cabinet Locks

If you are considering adding file cabinet locks to the cabinets on your property, there are a few different types that you can choose from:

  • Single-sided wafter locks (key entry)
  • Locking bar locks
  • Push button locks
  • Keypad locks

You have a lot of different options to choose from in terms of types of locking mechanisms. If you are in the market for new file cabinets, you can find many cabinets on the market that have built-in locks. The issue with built-in locks is that many of them are not as reliable and preventative as commercial grade locks.

Are They Actually Secure?

The level of security depends on a couple of different factors, namely

1) The quality and durability of the file cabinet itself

2) The caliber of the lock that you are using

We recommend that you assess the quality of the locks that you currently have on your file cabinets. It is likely that you are going to want to do some research on higher-grade commercial locks, and eventually purchase some better locks for your filing cabinets.

Our locksmiths receive extensive automotive training and have the proper tools and equipment to get the job done right. We are able to remove door interior panels to gain access to the locking mechanism, remove door handles, adjust door strikers, and more. We can even cut replacement keys and change locks at your location.
