The article at the following link is a classic, and unfortunately, all too common example of the importance of re-keying your rentals when you change tenants. This landlord will likely be facing a very expensive lawsuit and his tenant may suffer the results of his oversight for years to come. A sad story that speaks for itself.
According to dictionary.com rekey is defined as follows:
–verb (used with object),-keyed, -key·ing.
1. to fit with different pins and a different key.
What this means to you is that the pins (sometimes referred to as ‘tumblers’) in your locks can be changed to prevent those locks from working with their current keys and, instead, to work on completely new keys. In other words . . . giving you the peace of mind knowing that no one has keys to your home or business that you did not give them.
It’s that simple.
How do you get your locks rekeyed?
Just call your friendly locksmith (in Western Nevada County, that would be me . . ) to arrange for him to rekey your property. His expertise will quickly restore your confidence that only you and those you trust can enter your home or business.
