The simplest explanation would be that master key systems are basically a group of locks that work with one or two keys.
Most locks that you've seen probably only worked with one specific key, and you've probably had to carry many keys with you before, so you can see carrying that many keys around could become confusing. Label them all as differently as you want but you're still going to have a ton of keys to sift through each time you need to open something. Master key systems take care of that mess and completely simplify the process.
If you have a large facility or the like that requires several locks to be in place (local jails come to mind), imagine having just one or two keys for the entire place. Wouldn't that be nice? If nothing else, it's definitely a much more practical option.
We can 'rekey' your existing master lock system!
Do you already have a master key system in place but are missing the original keys? Need to change the master key altogether?
"Rekeying" is when we change the internal pins or wafers within the locks so that you don't have to change ALL of the existing locks. You just get a new key and the older keys will no longer work with those locks. This is a good option not only when you've lost your only set of keys, but when others may have copies and you'd rather they no longer have access.
We can either install a master key system for you or create new keys for your existing system, depending on what you need and how secure your system currently is. Give us a call and we'll gladly come out to visit and give you a dependable quote that we'll stand behind.
