Do you want your locks changed ?
If you need to get the locks changed, you have come to the right place. Changing locks is a service we regularly perform at Brisbane Right Price Locksmith.
When a customer calls and says “I want to have the locks changed”, we assume you mean that you want to have the key that currently fits your locks rendered inoperable and a new set of keys issued. The lock change process involves dismantling your existing locks and altering their internal combination to suit a different set of keys. We call this process “Re-Keying“.
When should you get your locks changed?

If your keys were stolen then this is an urgent matter. You know that the person who has them is a criminal, and you know that he or she can access your premises at will. We will change locks for you in this instance and give you priority service given the urgency of the situation.
If you are moving house, having the locks changed is important to ensure that there are not multiple copies of your house keys still in circulation.

Misplaced keys is a very common problem. Helpful people ask you where you had them last. As if you hadn’t already tried to remember that. The side of the arm rest of the lounge chair, and the back of the lounge chair cushion are the usual hiding places. They often get scooped up and put in to the wheelie bin with garden pruning’s too ! If these locations don’t bear fruit you can always ask Brisbane Right Price Locksmith to change locks for you!
Locks Changed & Keyed Alike reduces keys
When you get your locks changed, we are usually able to reduce the number of keys you need to carry. This is achieved by “keying alike” as many of your locks as possible. Having your locks keyed alike means carrying less keys on your key ring, and faster entry and exit times. You will appreciate getting in quickly during inclement weather, and when you arrive home late at night.
Pull out 1 key and open your screen door and timber door knob and deadbolt, one after the other. Imagine effortless entry without having to wrestle with a big bunch of keys. Keying alike makes using your locks a pleasure. People are more willing to use their locks and lock deadlocks correctly when things are made smooth, quick and easy to use.
Lock Changed and Inspected
The first thing we do when we change locks is to examine all of your locks. This is to determine the extent of keying alike that is achievable with your existing locks and cylinders. Often we are able to key all of your existing locks to the one key. While we are making this inspection we will ask you if all the locks are functioning correctly to your knowledge. We will look for any issues such as locks and striker plates that do not line up anymore and also look for locks that may be broken. What are you waiting for ?
