    A Master keying system regulates access to specific zones and all locks can be operated by a single master-key, this involves each lock being individual pinned up so only certain keys will operate those locks.

    Re-keying means changing/replacing the pins in an existing lock so that only a new key can open it, this is recommended if you move into a home or business that was previously occupied by someone else. A Master Key System comprises of a hierarchy of keys with a master key that will operate all locks.
