How to Re-key a Door Lock

May 23, 2023

We made a short video showing how to re-key door locks 3 different ways. We'll show you how to perform a standard re-key, how to re-key for a master key, and how to re-key for construction keys. We go into a bit of detail explaining how each method works.

Here are links to jump to the start of each section:

You may want to re-key your locks for a number of reasons: a lost key or stolen key, a roommate or tenant moves out, a need to unlock several doors with just one key, or multi-unit access in the case of a master key. Watch our video and learn how to do it yourself. It's simpler than you might think.

If you have questions, contact us and talk with one of our experts. We carry a full range of re-keying tools, pins, and supplies for KW and SC keyways, on top of our broad selection of bath and door hardware and locks.
