3 methods to open multiple locks with the same key:
1. Purchase new locks
While this may not always be someone’s first option, it is the easiest solution. You can head to your local hardware store and buy all key ‘keyed alike’ locks where all you need is one key and you can open each lock you buy. While this is going to be the most expensive option, if you don’t know much about rekeying locks or making new keys, this is going to be the easiest solution for you. When you’re at the store to buy new ‘key alike’ locks, make sure to talk to a worker so you know you are buying the correct locks. There’s nothing worse than going to the store, buying the wrong items, and then having to go back again.
If you’re looking to remain within a smaller budget or your budget doesn’t allow for all new locks, rekeying is going to be your second greatest option. Rekeying a lock is when the inside of the lock is changed to an existing key that you want. This requires a professional locksmith, but don’t worry – QuickPro Locksmith has you covered! This option is far less expensive and the help from one of our team members. You can rekey a lock by yourself, but you will need special tools and equipment. If you’re looking to do this option due to the lower cost, your best bet is hiring a QuickPro Locksmith instead of investing in the right equipment so you can do it yourself!
