When you hear the term “locksmith”, you think about people being locked out in some way. Maybe they locked their car with their keys inside. Maybe the dog pushed the front door closed before they could grab the keys. However, this is not the only thing that residential locksmiths like A-1 Lock & Safe can do. Over the next few months, we will discuss all of the other services that we can provide.

Rekeying Locks

There are several times in your life that you will want to get your locks rekeyed. This service is a great way to keep yourself safe. You don’t want to think about all of the people that may have a key to access your property

-Buying a new home

When you buy a new home, whether you are the first owner or the 15th, you should have the locks in your home rekeyed. If you are the first owner of the home, the contractors and everyone else who worked on your home has the potential to have a key to your home. If you are buying a home that is 100 years old, you have 100 years of owners that may still have a key to your home.


If you rent your property, it is always a good idea to rekey the locks to the house in case previous tenants want to get back into the house. You don’t want to make your new tenants be scared of others getting into their new place in the middle of the night.
