  6. I want to rekey my locks. What does that involve?
    Rekeying involves changing the internal mechanism of your existing locks so that they work with new keys. It's a cost-effective way to ensure that old keys no longer work, which is great for security when moving into a new home or after a set of keys has been lost.

    Harvard Street Locksmith can consult with you to advise on and install the latest in security technology, from high-grade locks to advanced access control systems. We tailor solutions to meet your specific needs and ensure your peace of mind.

    We recommend keeping a spare key in a secure location or with a trusted neighbor or family member. Harvard Street Locksmith also offers key management solutions to help you avoid lockouts in the future.
  12. What are the signs that I need to replace my locks?
    If you're experiencing difficulty turning the key, notice visible damage to the lock, or have concerns about previous access by others, it might be time to consider a lock replacement for enhanced security.
  13. I just moved into a new house. Should I rekey the locks?
    Absolutely. It's a good security practice to rekey the locks when you move into a new place. This action ensures that you know exactly who has access to your home.
  14. What should I do if my key won't turn in the lock?
    First, make sure the lock isn't frozen or dirty. If the key still won't turn, it might be a sign of a deeper issue with the lock mechanism. Call us, and we can help diagnose and fix the problem quickly.
  15. Is it safer to have digital locks for my home?
    Digital locks can provide enhanced security features such as entry tracking, remote locking and unlocking, and custom access codes that are perfect for families or businesses. We can discuss if digital locks are right for your security needs.
