Types of Installations
There are many different solutions to changing locks that are available. An individual might choose to re-key it or just completely replace it with a new one. When an individual goes for lock re-key, the main focus would be on changing the passwords, combinations or keys to fit the new ones.

Although, if the customer has a complex system of locks and not enough experience or time to change them, they might need professional service. Most of the time, you will find that nowadays most of them have re-key options or passwords that you can change.
