Frequently Asked

  • Is it possible to change the keys without changing the lock?
  • Can you program this smart key?
  • Are there keypads that you can control from your phone?

We come across many questions and problems, and are here to help answer them all!

Here are the most common questions (FAQ) we get asked about our locksmith services or products.

Can you add a deadbolt to a door that doesn’t have one?

Yes!  Fresh installations allow for extra locks or hardware to be added to any existing door.

Should I change my locks when I move into a new home?

From a security standpoint, having the old keys to the home not work is a smart thing to do; however, changing out existing hardware isn’t always required as it’s a more expensive option.

A more cost-effective option is to rekey the existing lock(s), if you are ok with the aesthetics of the current lock(s).  The locksmith changes part of the interior cylinder of the lock so that old keys will no longer work, and provides the new home owner with 2 new keys.

Do you make car keys?

Yes! Our technicians can copy, program, and produce & cut keys for lost-key situations.

How can I pay for your service?

We accept cash, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), debit, e-transfers & bitcoin.

If I'm locked out of my house, will my lock get damaged from you breaking in?

So, 95% of the time, locks do not get damaged or need to be broken when “breaking in”/ opening. However, 5% of the time, depending on the use of the lock, age, etc, a lock may need to be drilled to get into the house.  In those situations, we can provide & install a new lock upon the customer’s request.

Should I put high security locks on my home or business?

Any measure taken to upgrade one’s security is a safe decision.  If you have a concern about your home or business’ safety/secureness, installing high security locks, which are more difficult to pick or break into, can appease worries of break-ins.

I have 4 doors in my house and 2 use one key, the other 2 use a different key. Is it possible to have all the locks work with the same key?

Yes! If the locks operate on the same keyway, the locksmith can rekey 2 of the locks to match the other key.  If, however, one or more of the locks operate on a different keyway, the locksmith can change the hardware for those locks and rekey the new lock accordingly to match the other key.

Are keypad style locks more secure than a regular deadbolt?

Although convenient, the touch keypad locks you can get at big box stores are not more secure than a standard, key-operated lock. A digital keypad lock is nothing more than a standard key operated lock with an added feature of convenience in the form of a touch pad, but it does allow for some more options for the consumer vs a standard lock such as automatic locking, one-time use codes, multiple codes (for house cleaners, babysitters, homecare workers, etc), to name a few.  One detail to look out for when purchasing a keypad lock is the maximum cold temperature it can handle, as Winnipeg hits -30 to -40 sometimes and many models of keypads can only handle up to -20/-25 and then the electronics do not work. This results in sometimes getting locked out in that freezing temperature if the specific keypad does not have a back up key option or if you don’t have that key with you.
