• Your first line of defense against intruders is a properly locked door. However, that defense is not very reliable if you’re not sure who has keys to those locks. There are many reasons for changing a lock, including: • Moving into a new house • Losing a key • House was broken into • Purse was stolen – with your keys in it • Current lock is worn and temperamental • Current lock is builder’s grade – you want a more substantial lock • Desire to use the same key to open each door in your house • Uncertainty of which contractors, service personnel, and neighbors have keys to your house The difficulty of changing or replacing a lock varies from job to job. If no new holes are needed in the door or door jamb, replacing a lock (handset) is a fairly straightforward, DIY job. Otherwise, a locksmith can handle your lock needs and has the tools to make the commonly needed adjustments.
