Change Locks to Stop Unauthorised Entry with Lost or Stolen Keys

Losing, misplacing or having your keys stolen can be stressful and frightening, especially if you don’t know who now has access to your home, office or business. Have one of our licensed professional locksmiths attend your home or business to change the locks quickly and ensure the safety and security of your family and property.  With our 8 vans on the road, one of our mobile locksmiths will be able to attend to your job as soon as possible.

Why Change Locks?

Keys are easily duplicated, and you may never know how many people hold a copy of the key that opens the door to your house or business premise. Overlooking the rekeying the locks is easy until someone enters your house or business without authorisation.

If your keys have been lost or stolen, it’s important to have your locks changed as quickly as possible for safety and security reasons. These are some of the many reasons to rekey your locks, but there are also other situations when it’s a good idea to change your locks:

Staff change

Offices and businesses should consider rekeying locks after a staff member has left for security reasons. Rekeying the locks can help to protect your employees, their belongings and your valuable equipment from unauthorised access.

Gronbek Security can also offer tailored restricted key systems to help manage your keys and increase security.  This is highly recommended for businesses.  Please contact us on (08) 9433 3311 for more information.

Tenant moved out

Landlords, property managers and real estate agents should organise the rekeying of locks as soon as tenants have vacated. Often tenants will make copies of the keys for ease of access.  How many former tenants have forgotten to hand back a set of duplicate keys? Even if the original keys were handed back, consider changing your locks to ensure the safety and security of your next tenants.

Break In/Theft

If your house has been broken into, do you know how many keys you have? Do you know where they are all kept? Although you may have your main house key, there may have been copies lying around you have forgotten about. Homeowners and businesses should change locks immediately to secure their premises and protect their assets.


Even the most diligent person can sometimes misplace their keys. Not knowing where your keys are and who could use them to gain access to your home is a scary thought. Have your doors rekeyed immediately for peace of mind.

Will the old keys still work?

It’s a common misconception that the old keys will continue to work after we have rekeyed your locks, but once we have changed the barrels, the old keys will no longer work. Anyone who holds the old key will not be able to gain entry through that door, making it the perfect way to ensure that those lost, stolen or misplaced keys can’t be used to gain entry again.
