One of our most popular services at Lock, Stock & Farrell is rekeying locks in Perth homes. When we rekey your locks we change the existing coding in your locks to different sizes and provide you with new keys. Once this is done, no previous keys will work in those locks.
Our customers reach out to us to rekey their locks for increased security reasons and also to consolidate the amount of keys they need for their home. When you rekey your house locks, you can use the same key to lock and unlock everything rather than using a bunch of different keys.
Plus it’s a lot cheaper to rekey rather than to replace locks.
We recommend rekeying your locks when:
- You purchase a new home
- You lose your keys
- After a break-in
- If you have faulty or broken locks
- To standardise all locks to work with the same key
- Change of residents (e.g. a partner or housemate moves out)

How long does it take to rekey locks?
It only takes our expert locksmiths approximately 15 minutes to rekey a lock. Once we have rekeyed all the locks in your house we can then cut you new keys. This can be all done onsite via our mobile locksmith vans.
How much does it cost to rekey locks?
Single sided locks (key lockable from one side only) are $30 per lock to rekey and double sided locks (key lockable from inside and outside) are $40 each to rekey. Cutting new keys is an additional $7 per key.
Can all of my locks be keyed alike (same key for all locks)?
If the profile is the same- yes. This can be checked by taking one of your keys and sliding it into the other locks you have. If it slides in we can key them alike.
Will my old/current keys work once it has been rekeyed?
No, your old keys will no longer work if you rekey the lock.
Should I replace my lock or rekey if my keys are stolen?
If the locks aren’t damaged or broken then we suggest you rekey the locks. This is much more cost effective than replacing the locks and just as effective as you will still have a new key and the other keys won’t work.
