What does “rekeying a lock mean?”
When Trulox locksmiths rekey a lock, we alter an existing lock so old keys no longer work. This requires us to change pins inside a current lock so that they require a brand new key. When Trulox rekeys a lock, you will get new keys, and people who have old keys will not be able to gain access.
Am I able to use the same key for all of my locks?
In certain cases, yes, but only if all of the locks are of a similar type or are made by the same manufacturer. For instance, if all of the door handles inside your home or business look the same but require different keys, we can adjust them so you will only need one key to access all of them.
Do I have to replace all my locks if I lose my keys?
No. Trulox professional locksmiths can make copies of a key if the original is lost or stolen. That’s why you should never panic if you lose your keys. Just call Trulox, and we will make new keys quickly.
Should I rekey the locks If I Move Into A New Home?
If you bought a new home, chances are the old owners did not rekey the home for you. In this case, you should definitely rekey the house so the old owners or anyone else who had a key to it can get inside.
If you rent a new place, call your landlord and ask if they rekeyed the home after the old tenants moved out. If they haven’t, you should rekey the home so the old tenants can’t gain access. It would be wise to ask the landlord to rekey the home for you. Often, they are willing to cover the costs.
Can Every Lock Be Picked?
No, not every lock can be successfully picked. Many locks used in homes and businesses are high security and pick-resistant. The newer the lock is, the better the chances are of the lock being pick-resistant.

Do locks still work after you open them?
Yes, when a Trulox locksmiths open a door for you, they actually pick the lock. Picking a lock on a house or car does not damage the lock. However, there are cases when a damaged lock needs to be drilled to gain access, which is rare. But, if that’s the case, the lock will need to be replaced.
What does Master Re-keying mean?
Master re-keying is often used by used apartment complex managers, property managers, and other types of business owners. Master rekeying is best explained by using a large apartment complex as an example. A property manager doesn’t want to carry keys for every apartment unit. Instead, they carry a master key that allows access to every unit. However, the key given to each tenant only allows access to their specific unit.
Master-keying a group of locks requires that all the locks in the group are made by the same manufacturer. Along with master key systems, Trulox is also able to create sub-master keys and grand-master keys, etc.
