Q: What is re-key?
A: Re keying is the process of changing a lock’s tumblers to work on a different key than the current one.
Q- Why is it necessary to re-key your locks? -
A- It is necessary to re-key your doors for many reasons. If you have just moved to a new home, the previous home owners could have duplicated the key and have full access to enter your home and steal from you. Another reason is after a certain amount of time the pins and bolts are not as strong leading to easier break In’s. Another big reason is money; everyone wants to save money so re-keying saves you money.
Q- Are Jimmy Proof products a good idea to put it? -
A- Jimmy Proofs are very good. These are much more complex than doorknobs and dead bolts. Jimmy proof locks are created differently; two vertical bars are interlocked when you turn the knob to secure the jimmy proof. This causes the door to be extremely strong because there is no room between the door pry bar and the jamb.
Q- Why is it that Dead Bolts are better than doorknobs? -
A- Dead Bolts are better than regular doorknobs for many reasons. Doorknobs are easily picked. For example, you can slide a credit card or an ID and easily unlock a doorknob. On the other hand, a dead bolt lock cannot be easily picked. When you secure the door the lock goes way further into the door causing it to be secured better. An ID cannot push open the lock it would take a lot more than that!
Q- Are Biometrical ways of security worth using? -
A- Yes, Biometrical wats of security are worth using if you have the money. Most biometrical ways of security are used in buildings like hospitals, schools etc. Not a lot of people use Biometrical security in there homes because of the price. Biometrical Lock- Locks that can only be opened by a fingerprint (the owners fingerprint)
Q- How can you tell when your doors need re-keying?
A- it is best to re-key your doors every 5 years because 5 years is a long time. someone could have copied your key and etc. Another time is after a break in, if you have experienced a break in you should change the cylinders because they have been damaged.
Q- Whats the difference between a panic bar and a push bar?
A- panic bar is the same thing as a push bar. the purpose of the panic bar is in its name. if there is an emergency thee easiest way to run out of a building is tosh the door open not turn a knob. All schools and hospitals must have panic bars. these bars are on the inside of the building not the outside.
Q- How to Re-Key?-
A- 1. Check the brand on every door; your locks might have different manufactures. Purchase a re-key kit for every brand you have. They are easily accessible at home stores and online. The kits come with two keys and tools to re-key six door locks.
2. Unlock the door, and remove the doorknob by inserting the wire tool, which you will find in your kit, into the hole on the knob. Release the clip and take of the knob.
3. Push the lock cylinder out of the knob. Once the knob sleeve drops off, use the retainer ring tool, also in your re-key kit, to free the cylinder.
4. Using your old key, turn it ninety degrees left or ninety degrees to the right. Take the key out and push the plug through with the plug follower tool in your kit. put even pressure on the plug and tool to make sure you don’t lose your springs by accident.
5. Empty the plug pins and put the new key in the product. Use tweezers or forceps to insert the new color-coded pins into the plug. Follow the kit instructions to ensure the new pins are put in correctly. Reassemble the doorknob after all this is done.
