Door Lock Installation

Installing a New Door Lock

How do you change a lock on a door?

That’s a question we get a lot. Installing a new door lock, while not difficult, different locks, doors and uses may have different requirements and tools to do the job right. There are a few questions that need to be asked before that question can be answered:

  1. What type of door? Is this an outside door or inside door? Is the door made of wood, metal or a metal door with a wood core?
  2. Fresh or existing install? Is there already a lock on the door or will this be a fresh install on a new door or door that has never had a lock on it?
  3. What type of lock? Do you want to swap out an existing lock for the same type or is this an upgrade to a different style of knob, handle or lock? There are all kinds of new high-security locks and smart locks for the home with keypads and Bluetooth technology.
  4. Do you really need to change the lock? Many time you don’t need to replace the entire lock, you only need to replace the pins in the existing lock for it to work like new. This is called rekeying and can be done quicker and much more affordably that a complete lock replacement.
