Locksmiths Change Locks
Most people when they move into a new place in Hornsby Heights, think of the changes they wish to make to their new place. Some think of their security, as a job they can tackle the keys and security is a job that can be done at a later stage. I’m guessing the thought is “I will just pop down to Hornsby Bunnings and buy some locks next weekend”. Well, there are a few issues with this game plan. To start with the nearest bunning is in Thornleigh, the next issue is that installing locks is not as easy as some people make it out to be.
Locks are security devices used to keep your doors locked, and a deadlock that is incorrectly installed will do one of two things. Kepp the owner out unexpectedly or two not provide good security against burglars. Both are undesirable.
Secondly installing new locks is more expensive than re-coding locks. That’s correct you can recode your current lock much cheaper and easily compared with buying and installing new hardware.
The process is quite simple. Call Dr lock Hornsby and we will dispatch our locksmith to come to you in Hornsby heights and recode your locks. The locks are removed from the door and the internal parts are recoded to suit a new key. The old parts that make the old keys will be removed and new parts installed to make the newly shaped keys work. The old keys will not work at all.

Locks are the only way to keep your doors locked and secure. So they are a high priority when you consider you are about to put your most treasured possessions inside your new place.
Like most tasks, there is an easy way and a hard way. The misconception that locks are easy and cheap and easy to install, may sound like the easy way, but as many new homeowners have found out, it’s the hard way.

Prices start from $55 per lock to remove the lock – recode the lock – refit the lock to the door. That’s $55 per lock, which is a lot better them buying new locks for $85 each and having to reinstall and redrill doors trying to fit the new locks and get them working.

Another key point to remember is that our locksmith can set your locks to operate on the same key. This is known as keying alike. This means you can have one key for many locks. For example, you come home and unlock the front screen door with the single key you carry, then you unlock the handle on the front door and then the deadlock, then walk into the house and unlock the glass sliding door and back screen door. All of this using the same single key. You can also have a colored key made to make identifying your key quick and easy.
