How to Re-key a Door Lock?

26 Jan 2021 0 Comments

There are many situations in life that need to re-key the door lock. It may be that the key is lost, it may be to prevent the ex-boyfriend from coming to the door, or if the tenant has just moved out, you need to change the lock.

But for a traditional door lock, the process of updating the key is very complex, you need to have a full understanding of the structure of the lock and some professional tools, and the fingers and mind are flexible enough to make it a headache just to think about it.

You can also ask the locksmith for help, but this will give you one more person to know your key, which is a departure from the original intention of updating the key in the first place.

And for those who need to change their locks frequently, it's not good to always rely on others.


So maybe someone wants to ask, why not just change the whole lock?

To which I would like to answer, if you are already willing to replace the entire lock at a cost, why not just change an electronic door lock?

The market for electronic door locks is now very mature, the price of an electronic door lock is about the same as that of an ordinary door lock, but the process of updating the password is much simpler. Even a child of a few years old can successfully set it in a few steps as long as he knows the number symbol.


How to re-key the electronic door lock

To re-key the electronic door lock is actually to change the user code for entering the door.

The way to change the user code of Signstek's electronic door lock is generally similar. Since most locks can set several sets of passwords, you need to delete the previous password before adding a new one. Take the 668 lock as an example, you need to delete the old user password first:

  1. Enter the Programming Code (PC) and press the #.
  2. Press and then press the #.
  3. Enter the password you want to delete and press the #.
  4. Enter the password you want to delete again, confirm it, and then press the #.

In this way, your original password has been deleted, and then you can add a new password:

  1. Enter the PC and press the #.
  2. Press 1 and then press the # key.
  3. Enter a new user code and press the # key.
  4. Enter the same user code again, confirm and then press the # key.

So, your new password is set.


The electronic door lock can provide the same or even more advanced security performance as the ordinary door lock, and it is more convenient to change passwords and other operations, and has more diverse password setting functions.

It is an indispensable tool for people such as apartment landlords and hotel managers, which brings great convenience to the lives of many people.
