Do I need to change all locks if my keys are stolen?
If your keys are stolen, you have two options: change the lock set or have it re-keyed. Replacing the lock set means that your entire lock, including the knob, will be removed and replaced. Re-keying your locks only involves replacing the tumbler. This keeps the current lock in place, but a new key will open it and all previous key versions won’t work.
