Roseville Locksmith – Do Away With All Those Keys On Your Ring By Replacing Your Padlock With One That Can Be Keyed to Your Front Door Key.

Rekeyable PadlockMost people have key rings that would function equally as well as a 10 pound fishing lure. These heavy key rings can be very cumbersome and extremely uncomfortable especially for a man who might carry them in his pocket. Believe it or not these rings can also be your ignition cylinders worse enemy. The problem is the weight of the keys  suspended from the ring can actually cause your ignition cylinder to wear out prematurely.

As a Roseville Locksmith one of the things that we try to do is reduce the number of keys that our customers have on their rings and in their possession. One simple way to do this is to get rid of that old master lock padlock  and replace it with a padlock such as the Abus 83/45 rekeyable one.  Abus is just one company that makes these locks you can find similar ones made by Schlage, Almont and Master Lock. These padlocks can be keyed to a Kwikset, Yale, or Schlage key. The advantage to this is that these keys happen to be the most common residential keys on the west coast. In other words you can have the padlock that is on your gate open with the key that is used for your front door to your house. Thus you can have one key that works all of the locks on your property. Talk about convenience.
