When Do You Need to Replace Your Door and Window Lock?
Lock & Key Wear and Tear
Rusted or worn locks make your home susceptible to a burglary. Old locks can be easy to pick and break. If you notice your lock has visible signs of wear or rust, it’s time to replace your lock. The elements have an effect on all moving parts of door locks and windows. This can be combatted by regular maintenence which includes lubrication, cleaning and regular use.
Moving Into a New Home or Flat
Your door is the first line of defence against intruders. When you move into a new property, changing the locks is recommended. You don’t know if the previous tenants kept a copy of the key or could exploit loopholes in the current lock. Keys Change hands so frequently, it’s hard to tell how many spare copies are floating around. Stay safe with new locks.
In the lifespan of a family (2 adults/2 children) it is estimated that upto 15 sets of keys will be handed to family members, neighbours and friends. This compromises your home’s security, so changing the locks is recommended.
New Locks and Keys After A Break-in
Replace your door lock after a burglary or break-in. The force used to gain access compromises the integrity of the lock mechanics if the door was forced during entry. A damaged lock makes you vulnerable to another robbery. The lock could malfunction at any time, leaving you outside in the cold. Assume your keys fell into the wrong hands after a break-in and replace old locks with new locks that feature anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-snap features.
New Locks and Keys After A Tenant or Room-mate Leaves
Re-key or change your locks when you tenants move out. Your home security depends a lot on who has access to keys. You do not want unauthorised people gaining access to your property, therefore always change your locks after a tennant or room-mate moves out.
Lost or Stolen Keys

Our Master Locksmith in Brighton recommend you change your locks every couple of years. Locksmith technology moves at a fast pace. Burglars are constantly looking for new ways to bypass the latest security engineering. Key Change Locksmiths help you make the best choice that protects your property.
Locks & Keys for the Type of Door and Window
The type of door or window you have determines the door lock. There is no one-fit lock for every purpose. Some locks are built for specific doors and windows. Residential homeowners have a wide range of door locks to choose from. They include deadbolts, handlesets, door levers and smart locks. They can be used for interior or exterior purpose.
For instance, installing a deadbolt lock on a glass door requires a double cylinder deadbolt. A door lever is ideal for interior doors because they are not as robust as deadbolts. The wrong lock makes it easy for criminals to break into your property.
Ease of Control & Access
Before installing a new system for your locks and keys, you need to know the required maintenance of the lock. Most systems are easy to maintain and control. Smart Lock providers can allow you to track key holders to ensure you have all of them on your phone and can disable access when you want to.
Security of the Lock and Key System
Most Yale night latch locks are 5 or 6 pin. Locks with a greater number of cylinder pins are generally more secure and harder to pick, drill or bump. Anti-drill cylinders provide a higher level of drill protection. Anti-bump cylinders are configured to prevent bumping (gaining entry by forcing the lock mechanism). Anti-pick cylinders includes special lock pins, mushroom pins, magnetic pins and spiral pins to prevent lock picking.
