Why should I request a rekeying service for my new home or business?
Safety is our number one priority for our customers. We recommend having your new home or business rekeyed because it will add a little bit more security to your property. You never know who might have made spare keys for your locks.
Do I need to purchase new locks if I request a rekeying service?
Here at Locksmith 24 NYC Inc., we advise to only purchase new locks if your current ones are old, damaged, or your keys will not work properly with the lock. We provide lock installations if you would like to purchase new locks, but our technicians can always come by to give you our professional opinión on what should work best for you and your home.
What if I want one key for many locks?
As long as every lock has the same pattern, we should be able to make you a key that will fit every one of them.
Could Locksmith 24 NYC Inc. give recommendations on how I can best secure the doors of my business?
Yes, our licensed technicians will be able to view your businesses' layout and access points to offer our best recommendations on security. If you need help with lock installations, keypads/keyless doors, deadbolts, or have any other questions regarding your security systems at your business you can always give us a call and we will put you on directly with the owner.
Should I go to a dealership to get a copy of my car key?
If you go to a dealership to get a copy of your car key, you could be spending more money than what you intended to. When you contact Locksmith 24 NYC Inc. we will be able to duplicate your car key and program your car, so that the key will be recognized, for a reasonable price. As long as you have a physical copy of your car key, we are able to perform our services for you.
What should I do if I broke a key and part of it is still in the lock?
Our team of experienced technicians will help you get the part of your key that is broken out of your lock for you without causing damage to the lock itself. Our services also allow us to make you a replacement key for your lock if you need it.
Are you able to put a new deadbolt on my door?
Yes, we are able to put a new deadbolt on your door. We recommend you only put deadbolts on exterior doors to keep your home protected.
If I rent my home or I rent an apartment, should I have the locks rekeyed?
Even if you do not own your own home, we do like to recommend rekeying the keys to your home or apartment that you are renting because you never know if previous owners made spare keys that they would still be able to use to get in. Rekeying will help your peace of mind if you are home alone or if you are away from home.
When should I get my locks changed?
You should get your locks changed if they are old or damaged. Changing your locks every now and again will add more security to your home or business.
Can I use the same key for all of my locks?
Some keys will fit in some locks of your home, such as the key to your front and the back door will fit the same lock, but other keys will not fit some locks in your home. For example, if you want to use your bedroom door keys to lock your front door, it will not work because they do not have the same key pattern.
What is the difference between a Master Key and a Rekey?
A Master Key is technically the “original” key made for your lock(s) and it will fit in only one lock. A Rekey is a key that is a copy of a master key, or another rekey, that can fit into the same lock(s) without having to change the lock(s) themselves. A Master Key, for example, is a key that you will usually receive when you first purchase/rent a home. A Rekey, for example, is a key that you want to be remade for yourself or for family members for your home just in case you lose one, or you want your family to get into the home without using your key.
