Almost all locks can have the keys changed, this is when the combination of the internal lock is changed which stops the old keys from working the lock.
It’s very convenient to match more than one lock to the same key.
People often ask “Does it reduce security by having all my locks on one key”? The answer is no it doesn’t reduce security.
The upside to having as many locks on one key, convenience.
But if you lose that key & you have an address attached to the key (Handbag) then you need to change all the lock, but most people have all their keys on the key ring so the same thing applies anyway.
Attend Locksmiths charges a flat rate price which has not increased since 1994.
