Frequently asked questions
Q: When should I call 9-1-1 and when should I call for a locksmith?
A: Call 9-1-1 if your children are locked in the car or home and they are too young to open the lock. Besides that, call for a locksmith, the police will not respond to a non-emergency lock out situation.
Q: Why should I call for a professional locksmith?
A: Key 4 Less locksmiths are licensed and insured professionals who are qualified with the correct tools to solve your locksmithing issues.

Q: I just bought a new home or moved into a new rental property, should I have the locks re-keyed?
A: Absolutely! Many people are involved in the buying, selling, and renting of properties and they may still have the keys to your new home. To ensure your safety, and to know YOU are the only one with the keys to your home, call Key 4 Less to re-key all the locks in your new home.
Q: What is the difference between a lock change and a re-key?
A: When a locksmith comes to your home or business to re-key, that means they will change the core of the lock so that it works to new key. If you want your locks changed, the entire lock itself will be removed and replaced. Many people want to keep their existing locks and have the center changed (re-key). However if you have old or damaged locks, it is recommended to change the locks. A Key 4 Less locksmith can assist you in deciding what is best for your locks.
