The Importance of Re-Keying Your Entire House

The Lockman Memphis

I had the pleasure of doing somewhat of a ride-along with a locksmith from The Lockman recently. Jason Erwin is a well-educated locksmith that made what I assumed would be a complicated job seem easy.

The main thing I learned with my time with Jason is the importance of having a single key for every door. These days, more than ever, safety is essential. This sweet family with three beautiful children understands the value of security and trusted The Lockman could get the job done right.
