Replace or re-key?
Many times people call and ask for a price to replace their locks when in reality, they really need only to be re-keyed. We generate a new key for your home by code on a special key cutting machine. We then remove all of your existing locks, disassemble the lock cylinder and discard all the old pins (the part the key pushes up and down). New pins are installed that match the new code cut key and at that time the lock cylinder is inspected, tested, and lubricated if needed. Then the lock is then reinstalled back on your door. This procedure guarantees that the old key no longer works and also cures many problems with sticking keys or stubborn locks.
Two FREE keys with every residential re-key.
Reasons for re-keying a residence could be the purchase of a new home, locks that are not operating properly, different keys for every door in the house, lost keys, the need for additional locks or possibly a domestic situation.
Attention New Home Owners
Who else has keys to your home? After purchasing your new home, the FIRST thing you should do is re-key the locks. This should be done before any of your personal belongings are moved in. When new locks are purchased they come with two keys EACH. How many keys did you get? Do you know if the neighbors, previous owner’s relatives, construction workers, old babysitters, etc. have keys?
We stock a wide variety of high quality new locks on our van to satisfy most needs. There is no need to go to the big box store and buy inferior quality locks when we can supply a superior lock at an affordable price. We can also order designer locks like the beautiful Emtek brand or the high end Baldwin line. These high quality locks are not available in stores and will add beauty and durability to any home.
We are now an installer for high security, anti kick-in devices for entry doors and French doors. We use only the best door reinforcement systems on the market and CRS Locksmith can professionally install these at a surprisingly affordable price. This will greatly increase the security of your home and will stop even the most determined burglar from kicking in your door. Call today for a free quote.
In addition to our list of services, I can provide creative solutions to your security needs. For instance, let me explain a little about master keying. Master keying is done so that more than one key can operate a lock. If done properly it still provides a high level of security. An example would be if you have locks on the gates to your yard, I can master key one or more of them so that you have a key that you can give to the pool guy or the gardener that will just open the gates to the yard while, at the same time, making your house key work the gates. That would mean the pool guy could get into the yard to service the pool, but not into the house. Or similarly for a situation where you may have a maid come in once a week, we can make a “maid key” and key one doorknob to work with that key and your house key. Then on “maid day” you leave the deadbolt on that door unlocked and the maid can come and go. The rest of the time you can lock the deadbolt on that door and the maid can’t gain access because the “maid key” can only operate the doorknob. If you are concerned about intruders picking their way into your home or utilizing “bump keys” that have been in the media lately, many times I can re-pin your existing lock with bump resistant and pick resistant pins to give you added security.
If you have doors with only one lock and no deadbolt, then that door is NOT secure! Let us install a deadbolt to add to your security. We use professional jigs to insure a perfect fit every time.
While CRS Locksmith doesn’t install alarms, we highly recommend them as PART of your security hardware. They are excellent for what they are designed to do, but generally, they only tell you what has ALREADY happened. There is no substitute for quality locks and a secure door to PREVENT intruders from entering your home.
