Re-keying is when the locksmith changes the tumbler or pin configuration of your current lock and cuts a new key to fit. This is a lot cheaper than having to change the whole lock. It is a great idea if you have just moved house and don't know who else may have an old set of keys.

Not all locks are equal. Some are much more secure than others. Over 70% of intruders enter a property through a door, so if you want to lessen the chance of being burgled, it is worth investing in good quality high security locks. In addition, most home insurance policies also specify the minimum requirements that door locks must meet. If you do not meet their requirements they may not pay out.
