Have a life change? Change the locks.

The easiest way to break into a home is to have a door key or the passcode for a keypad lock.

When purchasing a new home, most of us simply accept the keys at the closing and don’t think twice about the number of people who may also have copies of those keys.

Or perhaps you just ended a relationship, and you worry that your ex still has a key to your front door. Changing the locks or the passcode allows you to control who has access to your home.

Also change the locks if you lose your keys.
